If there was a need for a new subsection they would put one in. Seems you’re the only one who think it’s needed. I work on Fairbanks-Morse and McCormink-Deering Hit-N-Miss engines, but there is no subsection for them. Why, because there is no need. Looks like you are from the generation of “I want it and I want it NOW.” Things don’t revolve around your wants, so go somewhere else to pick your fights.
Ryobi Limited is a Japanese manufacturer of components for automobiles, electronics, and telecommunications industries. It also sells printing equipment, power tools, and builders' hardware. Ryobi Power Tools and Ryobi Outdoor Power Equipment are brands of Techtronic Industries, used under license from Ryobi Limited.
Techtronic Industries Company Limited (TTI Group or TTI) is a Hong Kong based multinational company that designs, produces, and markets power tools; outdoor power equipment; hand tools, and floor care appliances. It pioneered cordless power tools powered by lithium-ion rechargeable batteries.
TTI manufactures in China, Vietnam, the U.S., Mexico and Europe, and in 2022, had annual sales of US$13.3 billion.
I would think they are assembled in the USA using a mix US and foreign made parts. Not 100% usa made.
FWIW we get Yard Machine branded ride on mowers down here
When I decode the MTD model numbers I end up with Kohler powered tractor style mowers marketed as Ryobi in either the USA or Canada .
So in fairness Ryobi is really not all that different to Craftsman other than Craftsman does have service information , IPL's & some sort of replacement parts supply
Ryobi ( down here any way ) does not for most of what is sold retail
And on top of what Star has pointed out each division of Ryobi is an entity unto itself so there is not even a single web site to visit
Down here & apparently in the UK the importer or retailer is obliged to supply that information for how ever long it is needed
So almost identical machines could be under the name a dozen different retail / wholesale chains and again down here access to information is limited by requiring proof of purchase so they can tell if they are liable for your particular machine.
On top of that there are no Ryobi franchise dealers so no dealer network thus no need for after sales service above & beyond replacing a faulty machine during warranty period .
And it is getting where manufactures are doing just Bert said and that is they are no longer supporting their equipment beyond the warranty period. I just ran across a Briggs engine that Briggs no longer fully support even it was just over two years old. Needed a coil but none was available.
