Husqvarna Professional Products will discontinue manufacturing and selling commercial lawn-mower products under the Yazoo/Kees brand name by year end.

The company will still produce similar products under both the Dixon and Husqvarna brands. It will continue to process warranty claims and make service parts available for Yazoo/Kees for an extended period of time.
