Cub Cadet and John Deere are grouped together because both gave up and subsidized their riding tractors to MTD.
Here I was hoping I would never see that typed out on this site. Oh well.
John Deere has always built their own LT and GT's, never have they sourced out the manufacture of any of their LT's or GT's. Ever.
John Deere is made by MTD? Really???..... Really??!!
Well, that explains a lot!
Trouble-maker! All the brass are gone for the weekend, you're in big trouble Mister.
