Big Dog Mowers are made in Hesston Kansas.
The same manufacture that makes Big Dog Mowers also makes Hustler Lawn mowers and both Big Dog Mowers and Hustler Mowers are good quality lawn mowers that are well worth the money to purchase.
A lot of commercial mowing companies and landscapers use Hustler lawn Mowers and I have a Big Dog Riding mower Zero Turn riding mower and it's a great lawn mower.
They are not really cheap but they are quality made and will likely last a very long time.
I highly recommend buying a big dog lawn mower if you're looking for a good quality lawn mower.
