Quite simply, at B T South we look for the brands that we would buy ourselves if we were shopping for a product in the category. We offer zero turn mowers and walk power mowers from Toro, but we don’t offer any of Toro’s hand held products such as trimmers and blowers. We offer Husvarna’s hand held products but we don’t offer any of their zero turn mowers or walk power mowers.
In our 15 years in business, we have been offered 23 different brands of zero turn mowers, and several brands of hand held equipment. If you study the brands we offer against the competition we think you will likely come to the same conclusions we did about which ones were the ones to own.
We do occasionally cherry pick other lines for unique features or special buy opportunities, but we also try to limit the number of brands we carry as it allows us to develop a deeper product knowledge and a deeper stock of parts to better support our customers. Too many product lines can result in not being very good at knowing and supporting any of them.
