The Russo Family of Brands

When Russo Power Equipment celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2020, they developed a slogan: “Celebrating 50 Years of Business & The Next 50”. 

Whether through acquisitions or new store introductions, Russo has stayed true to their identity and promptly delivered on their promise of growth in the "Next 50" with regional expansion. Some of the acquired companies will continue to operate under the same names that communities have trusted for decades.

As members of the Russo family, all these businesses share the same core mission: Powering Nature’s Professionals!



ABOUT PORTER'S LAWN & POWER EQUIPMENT: Founded in 1951, Porter’s Lawn & Power Equipment has been a family-owned staple in the Janesville, WI community. Jim, who took over from his father, along with his wife Sandy have built the business into the loyal, community-based dealership it is today. Specializing in Toro branded equipment for residential and landscape contractors, Porter’s will continue to serve lawn maintenance enthusiasts. Learn More



ABOUT HALTOM EQUIPMENT INC.: Founded in 1979, by the Haltom family in Mooresville, IN, Haltom Equipment has been providing quality lawn and garden equipment, parts, and service since the beginning. As the needs of the business shifted and the Benko family took over the company, there was a shift to move from a one brand dealer to a multi-brand dealership in 2010. Now carrying top brands like Toro, Exmark, Wright, STIHL, Bad Boy, Ferris, and Kioti, Haltom is ready for the next chapter with Russo. Learn More


MUTTON POWER EQUIPMENT TRANSITIONS TO RUSSO: Since the 1940s, the Mutton family has been an integral part of the landscape industry. But it wasn’t until 1976 that they opened a true dealership. Fast forward to 2023 and Jim Mutton sold his family’s dealership on Illinois Road in Fort Wayne, IN to Russo Power Equipment. With new ownership comes change, in this case, it comes in the form of a new name, new processes, new brands, and new services. However what will not change is the same familiar staff continuing to greet customers and offer quality lawn equipment to professional landscapers and landowners alike, but now as Russo Power Equipment! This acquisition makes it Russo's first official Russo Indiana location. Learn More
