The comment about "good for a decade of mowing" seems a little perplexing considering the cost. Of course a decade at 50 hours a week is one thing and 2 hours a week is another.

When my dad had the Homelite dealership in my hometown in the early 70s the sales rep brought a tape of the Homelite brand being made from stamping frames and welding to paint, finish and testing. I held onto that tape for a long time. I gave it to my dad before he passed away in 1995. After we looked for it but couldn't find it. It was great to see how this was done. It covered everything motorized, from the push mower to the T-16H garden tractor they made. The rep said he needed it back but never came for it. Sure wish I could of found it. Would of been great to put on as a video here.  Thanks for posting the JD video.

Cool video, thanks

Still crazy, but it's not a MTD, this JD takes 72 minutes to build it. :poke: :D

Well yes and no. IF you count up the actual man hours it is much longer than 27 minutes. All that stuff is being made and assembled at the same time by a an army of people.

Thanks for posting the video. I'd settle for 72 hours. It seems to take me forever to get my stuff refurbished.

Neat video, thanks.  The decade of mowing comment sure is a sign of the times.  I think when most of our old iron was made the promotions would have said they are built to last a lifetime, not ten years.

Huh. Same video, but a different announcer. 

 

 

I think the original was for the Canadian program, while the male announcer was for the American version.
