As a full-line dealer for Takeuchi equipment, Cobb County Tractor and its Perimeter Takeuchi division supply the consumer, construction, landscape and agricultural markets.

“The owners and staff at Cobb County Tractor have an innate understanding of what their customers need to be productive and efficient,” said Steve DePriest, Southeast regional business manager for Takeuchi. “They combine their that expertise with extensive product knowledge to direct customers to the Takeuchi machines that will help them achieve their goals and their results speak for themselves. We’re extremely pleased with the job they’ve done representing the Takeuchi product line.”

Toro recognizes those who serve in the United States military this Armed Forces Day — and every day — as well as those who serve their communities across the country, with its American Hero Program. The equipment discount program offers current or former members of the military, and current or former firefighters and police officers, eligibility to save 18 percent off the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of Toro landscape contractor equipment.

“Toro equipment is relied on by many current and former military members, firefighters and police officers, either in a professional capacity or on their own properties, which is why we implemented this discount program to support these heroes,” said Ross Hawley, director of marketing at Toro. “We recognize the sacrifices our military and first responders make every day for this country, and the Toro American Hero Program is a small way we can honor them.”

Since Toro debuted the American Hero Program in 2014, many members of the military and first responders have taken advantage of the discount program to purchase new professional landscaping equipment.

Eligible current and former military members, firefighters and police officers with proper identification can visit any participating Toro dealer to receive the 18 percent discount on Toro equipment, including Z Master zero turn mowers, Grandstand stand-on mowers and walk-behind commercial mowers.
