Did Case/Colt build Toro Garden tractors ever?

I think UCD is correct that it is an older Toro. If my failing memory is correct I think Toro bought out Springfield in the 60s and incorporated some of their designs into the Toro tractor.

If it were dirt cheap it might, but no. I have a 5010 and a CT 10 to sell this spring and replace them with a Yeoman to operate the revitalizer( and perhaps other attachments) with. Trying to get my fleet down to a small group of regularly used machines. I dont need anything sitting around that doesnt see use at least a couple of times a month.

It has some nice lines on it, but I'm with you Sam, I just want to keep my fleet the size that I have right now, 5 simplicities or Ac's(two non-runners) and two Gravelys (both non-runners). jh

that is correct. i had a 1965 springfield that looked just like that toro. i believe the buy out was around 1965-66. i still have the springfield hood and grill laying around.
