I think Jacobsen was bought by someone
and now only makes those huge mowers
for golf courses and such. Call a lawnmower shop near you, they would be
your best source. We have one that is
about 20 years old and runs great except
for a leaky gas tank.
I depends on the age of the unit. We had a very old 8hp the discharged on
the LEFT and used synchronized blades. Turns out that I could get parts
from my local John Deere dealer's part department. Can't remember whether
first Jacobsens were from John Deere, or if the first John Deeres were from
Jacobsen, but as of 95, my JD dealer still had parts.
JD owned Homelite and Jacobsen for a while, not sure when. I was a dealer
from 1984 through 1989, Textron owned them then. It was not long after that
JD bought them, in 1994. JD sold them sometime in 2001, this time to the
same conglomerate that owns Ryobi, Techtronic Industries. www.ttigroup.com
It you look close at their trimmers they have the same accessories.
Homelite has been stripped down to bare bones. When I was a dealer they
manufactured probably twenty differant chainsaws, now they don't manufacture
any! They manufactured a a full line of lawn equipment through Jacobsen,
which is gone too.. They do sell 3-4 differant models of saws, but they arer
built by someone else, perhaps tied in to Ryobi somewhere now. There is
Jacobsen commercial lawn equipment that I believe is still around, although
it is not related to the home owner line of equipment. www.ttcsp.com
I am suprised that they still have the bulk of their construction equipment,
heavy duty pumps and the like, all made in the USA.
