    Discretion is the better part of valor. As I have replied to other threads manufacturers often buy up and eliminate their competition, while capturing existing and future market share. Examples of this include Toro/ Exmark,
    Husqvarna/ RedMax and a more recent Echo/Shindawia . The latter more because of Government mandates and emission control regulations.
    Manufacturers often choose to be quiet about their relationships with other divisions and brands even if they are under One parent control.
    Just good business sense, hence maintaining the illusion of not having all of your eggs in one corporate basket.

    A lot of people like to say Exmark and Toro mowers are the same. Simply not true. For starters, the deck is different. As for Grandstand VS WB, there is no place I can't mow with the Grandstands. As a matter of fact, in tight areas they are better than a WB because they don't have handles sticking out. They are faster and easier.
