    Maybe Howse? Their low and mid priced implements sell at Pressure Washers, Portable Generators, Mowers, Lawn + Garden | Northern Tool + Equipment . I have a KK backblade I bought at TSC. For my needs and the price it was a good buy

    Farm Force had been the brand showing up at my nearby TSC in mid-Maryland. King Kutter has still been supplying the tillers however. The sales guy told me KK was supplying implements to western TSC stores and Farm Force will supply eastern TSC stores. Farm Force stuff looks just like the KK stuff.

    Farm Force by Hawkline is what has appeared at the local TSC (Beavercreek, OH). Here's a link to Hawkline:

    Just stopped by a TSC last night and saw some of the Farm Force stuff out on display along with KK stuff. Farm Force appears to be identical in design and materials, but welds look slightly better and paint is definitely better (though same color).

    I bought a Farm Force Box Blade from TSC about 6 months ago. Looks exactly like the King Kutter XB (orange) except that the support linkage is orange instead of black.

    I was at another TSC today and noticed that the labels, at least locally, say "Farm Force by Tarter Gate." Nothing about Hawkline. Turns out that Tarter Gate is yet another manufacturer that makes some basic looking 3ph implements - just like KK. I am thinking that what is at my local TSC is not made by Hawkline. But for all I know, TSC has created a brand called Farm Force, and is buying products for that brand from both Tarter Gate and Hawkline. ??? Does anyone know exactly what the deal is with this "Farm Force" stuff?

    Our local TSC just got a big load of KK implements.. looks like they are ones that have been setting out at other TSC lots.. still in crates, unassembled.. faded paint and a bit or rust.

    If they would discount them a tad.. I might make some purchases...

    I emailed Hawkline to ask if "Farm Force" was theirs and got this response:

    "Thank you for your inquiry. The Farm Force by Hawkline at TSC is our product. In Minnesota this would be your best source to purchase Hawkline products.

    Best regards,

    Bob Lotzer

    Sales Manager

    Hawkline Nevada, LLC"

    I've sent an email to Tarter Gate with the same question. I am thinking that Farm Force is a TSC marketing brand and that it is sourced from either Hawkline or Tarter Gate (or maybe even other makers). I have no idea why the Hawkline flavor would be offered in Ohio and Minnesota while the Tarter Gate flavor would be offered in Michigan.
