So, for people who care about the history of these companies, apparently at one point in its history, Universal (an old Canadian garden tractor brand) bought walk behinds from Roths to sell and just added their own tag to the machine, in addition to the Roths tag.  It's kind of funny to see the two tags on there, not just a rebadged machine with a single tag.  This was news to me, so I thought I'd share.  There are some terrible pictures of the tractor and the two tags.  If you don't know about Universal, here's a very little bit of info:

Not that one, Mike.  It's neat, but not really my thing, and I have to save my pennies (wait, nickels - we don't have pennies anymore).  I am hoping to pick up a few things from this gentleman, however, but we'll see.

No pennies in Canada anymore. Change at point of sale is rounded to next 5 cent mark. Didn't stop stores from still pricing to .99 though...Dave
