    I bought the first machine in Kansas City, shortly after they released them. Didn't really use it very much cause chemicals were not our focus. Transitioned to apps only this year, really started using it after 3 years. So everything is out of warranty, and just used enough to start breaking. FML.

    To top it off, no one knows anything about these machines around here. Including the exmark rep I've been taking to from there headquarters for the last month!

    Brother find a toro dealer. They assemble the toro machines at there plant. I know for a fact there quality control is outstanding. Also I have the presidents cell number from exmark and she doesn’t mind you sending a text if you have a legitimate *****.

    Good afternoon, Paul.


    I am the President of Exmark Manufacturing Co, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Toro Company. I have been intimately involved in the recent acquisition of LT Rich by The Toro Company. Exmark is leading the integration and transition of the LT Rich products into our portfolio of products. Branden Happel asked me to reach out to you to try to answer the questions you posed to him.


    We purchased LT Rich Products because Z-Spray is the industry leader. The Exmark mowers are the leading brand for commercial landscapers and we see definite synergy there. Exmark has built the business on deep relationships with our customers, innovative, durable and exceptional products, an engaged channel and great parts and service after the sale. This aligns with LT Rich’s value proposition as well.


    Over approximately the next year, it will be business as usual. You will order and buy in the same way, you will interact with the same people. As we get further into the integration, we will work hard to keep the customers in the loop. Manufacturing will not remain in Lebanon, IN for the long term due solely to the fact that they have already exceeded their operational capacity. Production will be integrated into the Toro Company’s network of manufacturing facilities.


    I hope this helps alleviate some of your concerns. The Z-Spray will continue to be available to you and the other loyal customers of this excellent line of products.


    Best Regards,


    Judy Altmaier| President | Exmark Manufacturing Co.| judy.altmaier@exmark.com| O:402-223-6235| C:952-221-6102

    Update...We've replaced the pressure regulator, gauge (that's a whole deal of BS from Exmark which ill explain later), Flushed the system 3 times with the hottest water we have access to per Exmark instructions which he "swore" would fix the problem, NOPE! Next they tell us to take apart the new pressure regulator and heat the spring inside with a blow torch to make it expand:hammerhead:. All of this and the pressure still drops from 60psi down to 35 when turning on the wide spray! No matter what, can't get it to spray over 35 psi on the wide spray. Trim spray drops a few psi. Still waiting to here back on what to do next.


    Why doesn't Exmark know there products inside and out!? This is ridiculous. At this point the exmark/toro applicator sucks because tech support/service is basically non existent. Now that they bout Z spray, and most of the brains of that operation didn't go along with it, I imagine that line of sprayers will be F'ed very soon if not already.

    I am SOO looking forward to the ride on spreader sprayers Steel Green Manufacturing and Stinger Equipment are going to be producing. Made by people who actually know what they are doing, not just pumping out a product for profit with no support!
