Thumbs down Toros made in Mexico?

Didn't know that, a shame I know it is tough to source engines, etc. in the US, but they could at least assemble the machines here.

Even if it turns out to be true at least they're not coming from China like everything else is.
I used to buy Porter Cable power tools. Now MFD in China... Pathetic.

It really makes a difference to many people..
perhaps not to the majority of buyers, who wont even be aware of it..but for some it definitely encourages a perceived lowering in quality.. (whether that is true or not is often irrelevant..perception is very important when making buying decisions..)
Then it also turns off the people attempting to buy American..(which gets harder all the time of course..but many people do still care about that.)

I know I wont be buying a new Toro now..
