Yep, it sure is, but it will affect prices of turf machinery manufactured in America in the 25 to 74 HP range which is quite a chunk of golf course maintenance machines.

If you can find machines not made in America suitable for the job then the best of luck. Granted they do exist but may be powered by engines produced in America.
Since there will be price rises of American produced machines (maybe) other manufacturers will see those rises as an opportunity to put up their prices.
From what I have read the rises can be around 14-18% but on some they could be as high as 30% so plan now or at least bring it to the attention of those responsible for setting replacement machinery budgets.
