About Porter's Lawn & Power Equipment

Porter's Lawn & Power Equipment is now “Powered by Russo”. Russo Power Equipment is a large outdoor power equipment dealership headquartered in the Chicagoland area with 7 Midwest locations, a salt distribution center, and another “Powered by Russo” location in Indiana. 

Porters was started in 1951, went through two expansions in 1973 and 1986, and in 2022 became “Powered by Russo”.  Russo is proud to add Porters to their growing portfolio of dealerships and expansion into Wisconsin. Being “Powered by Russo” allows Porters customers access to additional benefits like online shopping, fleet management, and larger inventory.  

Don’t worry, our brand offerings and familiar faces will remain the same. We'll keep Toro as one of our core equipment brands as we look into adding others in order to offer a more robust lineup. Our parts division already stocks MTD, AYP, Briggs & Stratton, Tec, Kohler, Lawn-Boy, Gilson, and more. We also have the ability to special order replacement parts for your lawn and snow equipment.

Our motto is if we don't have it, or can't get it, you probably don't need it!

What Porters customers are saying

Always friendly and nice. Please ask for Jim Short. He knows his stuff! He is an amazing man and always friendly and positive. He calls back his calls also. You can't find a better man.

Phillip Fry


Great people, Great service, Great prices. They picked our mower up on Wednesday. They dropped it off Friday morning and did a wonderful job on the repairs

Marjorie Chambliss


Nice place, typical for a power lawn equipment dealer. Great, helpful staff. Part of the Russo group of dealerships allowing for a larger inventory and competitive pricing.

Tom C. Krejcie


Had some mechanical problems with my mower last summer and into the fall. So, I took it in for servicing earlier this spring. It runs like a brand new mower! Whoever worked on it was exceptional! The people at the counter were very helpful and friendly. A great place to deal with.

Don Freidig


Porter's/Russo provides the right products & service to keep my lawn care/snow removal equipment earning a living. I purchased a new Toro snowblower this season & had a minor issue that needed attention. Within an hour they had it fixed & ready to work. The dealer makes all the difference.

Paul Reints


Excellent personalized service with very knowledgeable staff. I made a new purchase of a Toro battery powered mower, snowblower, leaf blower and trimmer based on a friend's recommendation of Toro and Porter's service. I am looking forward to using the new equipment.
