I thought I would start a new topic on Q and A of lawn mower/lawn & garden tractor companies. I thought it would be fun to see how many companies we can feature in this topic. I will start. I would like to know the history of the Huffy lawn mower company.

I thought we had a member with a Huffy.  Maybe they will be along and help us out.  I don't know anything about them.

Thanks Trowel! Now we have some of the history of one company! If anyone else has any more info, please do share!


"Huffy began building lawn mowers in 1949 to diversify their product line. By the mid-1960s, Huffy was building a line of outdoor power equipment including lawn tractors. Huffy manufactured mowers for a variety of brands, including AMC and Turfmaster. Decreasing sales in the 1970s lead Huffy to sell its outdoor power equipment division in 1975".

"Yahoo Huffy Lawn-Yahoo! group for Huffy lawn mowers"

All of the above was taken from TractorData.com

P.S.
I'm interested in Huffy mowers because my dad had one when he was growing up.

A couple of our members have done research on their brand and done home page articles on them.
Springfield and Bolens come to mind. Might be a fun to write one on Huffy?
