Hey guys! I'm sure this gets tossed up once in a while, what would you perfer? IH Cub Cadet or the older John Deere's. I would perfer IH, because for 1. Most of them have a bigger tranny than my VW Golf. 2. They have steel hoods, not fiberglass. And 3. I just love IH  :rocker2:. Comment what you would rather have! Ian

 Deff Cubs.  Cubs have no belts in the drive system. They also have the same transmission as there big brother the Farmall Cub. Although I would entertain the idea of a JD 140 H3 or a Blue Patio.

They're both Great tractors.I would own a yellow one because of the Trannys and parts and attachments are plentyfull and affordable (and free parts manuals).

 

I would own a Green one,as long as it was shaft driven.Just because of the Aux hydraulics.

 

 

I can't stand the Variator system on the 100-200 series JDs and the price of attachments and parts is pretty rediculess.

I have JD tractors because that's what was available when I was looking. Older Cubs are even scarcer here than JD's. I don't think there is much difference in price either. The JD's have the advantage in new parts availability. A lot of parts are still available for the 300 series and I can usually have them in 3 days through jdparts.com and pick them up at my local dealer.

I really like my 140H3 (I like the 300 series too). I'm not a fan of the looks of any pre 82 series body style cubs except the Original... which ranks up there with 140 on looks in my book.

I have green , I had a 917 H AC I liked and and a 78 yr model Ford GT but don't remember the model I know it wasn't a hydro and I believe it was a 10hp. I would like an early Cub but I still prefer green except prices for parts etc.

This is an "Us" vs "Them" question, even in the bigger lines.  No real answer works!   Where'd that guy here get that the JD's were a MF in past.. NO WAY!   Not sure where he's coming from with that!

Actually the older JD's are the same thing as an older MF's.

 

Similar variable speed drives, but that's about all.
