Whats the deal with these things? Why has it been every year that these things keep getting cheaper and cheaper? Or at least some of the mid priced models! I see these things out in front of home depot and stuff, and they just dont look well built! Not only that, they all seem to be built by mtd now. Why hasn't any brand make a good solid tractor yet? John deeres biggest "x700 signature series" is $10,000 and dosent have the frame or driveline of a base model in the 60's-80's! I think someone should make a new well built garden tractor series! Cause i aint paying 10 grand for something that isint even as good as a 100$ barn find! What are your thoughts? you think they are just as well built? Or think they were built better back then.
