I will be doing a paper on the exmark company for my business class. Have looked over there website, and done some research. But the story I hear is a little different than that of local retailer. He said "the owner of exmark worked for toro, but toro would not listen to his ideas and he left toro to start exmark" anyone got any good proof of the origine or exmark? I have emailed exmark for any info they are willing to contribute. Again this needs to be something in print not just hear-say.
