My dealer calls today and wants to talk when I have the time. Ok - I figure I have 2 new Z's order for this spring and he wants to go over some stuff. HE tells me that Toro is dropping him due to low volume of sales, not enough inventory on hand, that he isn't pushing toro like he should. Toro came and picked up everything he had. He carries snapper & honda walks. Jonsreed, marayuma, red max. Good line of equipment but by by to TORO. This fall I was there and he had the entire shop full of toro service work. Today he tells me they were all bought from Home Depot and he has lost alot of sales due to there pricing. He told me that HD is selling these machines for less than he is buying them for. Now I have purchased many toro's from him in the past and he is just a great dealer for us. Respectfull, his employees are great, etc. I just can't beleive that TORO would up and pull the dealership. I here they are looking at a local implement dealer who can handle more equipment inventory but still. Now I have a 45 - 60 minute communte to get any TORO stuff. Maybe I might switch to exmark. Always wanted to try there machines and I know TORO / EXMARK is like talking GMC / Chevy but what a pain!
