    Well... I sure hope Tom's statement at the end of that article holds true for the sake of us that have enjoyed and come to expect the quality of product and service we have received for many years.

    I guess he's about ready to hang up his spurs...

    Ya, hope everything stays as is with production where it is, the awesome employees and the service. What an awesome facility he has built.

    Tom is a great individual that I met when he was just getting started. Best wishes for him.

    I guess if you cant beat em...buy them.

    You would think with these recent acquisitions, that equipment prices would increase, since there is less competition. But others here state that Briggs has cut the cost of the old Ground Logics.

    I know I can't see myself on a GL type machine ever again and if Toro throws a monkey wrench in what LT Rich has perfected, it will absolutely suck ballz...My 2 cents on the whole deal

    Toro has been on a spending spree the last few years. Unique lighting, Lawn Solutions, Boss Plows, and a few irrigation manufacturers, I believe. Might help guys with mowers get the fleet discounts. They say, the only reason to build a business is to sell it.
