    Well yesterday i was at my husqvarna dealer and they told me that Truegreen will now be switching to all husky products. I thought that was amazing seening how husky doesnt get much play from many LCO.

    That's probably why they did it. They dropped their pants to get the exposure (no pun intended). It won't be a money maker for them but it will at least get them seen. Personally it's Yazoo/Kee's/Blue Bird/AYP equipment that's branded for them. They only truly make the 2-cycle stuff. I actually own a couple of their chainsaws and I like them. I can't see myself ever buying anything else of theirs though.

    Its probly because TruGreen Landcare is'nt doing so well and they need to save money. So insted of paying nearly $12,000 for an Exmark Lazer Z, they are going to pay more like $8,000.

    LOL... Maybe, I know at one time they had about six divisions of Landcare with twenty+ crews here in Minnesota. A buddy of mine worked for them, now they are down to one and they only have two mowing crews.

    I thought True-Green did not do residential (mowing)?? I know they have a land-care division but that was only for commercial.
