Here's what some of our customers had to say:

Earth Anchor

"We wanted to find the most reliable machines with the best service and that had the smallest footprint. Takeuchi offers a line of everything compact. Every inch matters to us, especially working in downtown Toronto – 34 inches to 36 inches is a big difference." - Daniel Garfield, Co-Founder Earth Anchor Inc.

T.O.C. Rental and Sales

"Cost of ownership and how easy it is to service are key. We need to know how it is going to bring value to our current line of equipment. The TL8s fit exactly this. They have a vinyl seat that stands up better than cloth seat, and they're built for more durability and for getting the job done right" - Cory Goossen, T.O.C. Rental and Sales Inc

In a climate like Winnipeg, where you have six months of landscape work, if you're lucky, the Takeuchi machines are a big part of our business." - Ryan Kindret, Managing Principal for the Kindret Landscaping Group
