Toro began in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1914 by producing engines for the Bull Tractor Company. After branching out into steam engines during World War I, Toro began a focus on golf course and lawn maintenance in the 1920s. In 1986, Toro purchased lawn tractor manufacturer Wheel Horse, acquiring their full line of lawn and garden tractors, plus riding lawn mowers. Toro continues to produce lawn and garden tractors today, some using the Wheel Horse name.
