The Intimidator Story

In 1983, 17-year-old newlyweds Robert and Becky Foster bought a fireworks stand and never looked back. Decades later, we have them to thank for always chasing their dreams, one of which was to build the best side-by-side ever.

Intimidator Group Established

In 2013, after successfully launching other businesses, the Fosters founded Intimidator Group to produce a world-class 4X4 utility vehicle that could excel whether at work or at play.

Intimidator UTV Released

Featuring an entirely welded chassis, the first Intimidator UTV exceeded its lofty standards and shipped from Batesville, Arkansas, on August 7, 2013, fulfilling the mission of offering a world-class 4X4 utility vehicle.

Robert’s Dream

Since childhood, Robert possessed a love of engines and mechanics, so he applied that lifelong passion to his UTV design, meticulously going over every detail to ensure the machine’s durability, performance, and comfort.

Production Space Expanded

The existing operating space was more than doubled in 2019 by the opening of a 200,000-square-foot manufacturing facility, the first of three planned expansions.

Exponential Growth

Over just a few short years, Intimidator Group has grown to house five unique brands, employ approximately 550 people, and partner with more than 500 dealers across 39 states.

Acquired by The Toro Company

In January of 2022, The Toro Company purchased the Intimidator Group family of brands, allowing both companies—as well as all brands owned by TTC—to grow and thrive by sharing resources and technology.
