    All the smaller JD's are Yanmar's.. still.
    The E series is about the only one that may not have turning brakes on all models. JD had to cut corners somewhere, but no more so than any of their competition including Kubota.

    Im pretty sure the 1 series is not a yanmar competley. If it is, its not the same as cc or case.

    The new JD's, including the 1 series are built at their plant in Augusta Georgia. They have been moving to become all US made by Deere over the last few years. Mine is a Yanmar made machine, but it doesn't look like a CC at all. Case isn't a Yanmar, Case IH/NH are the same machines and they run Shibauru diesels. Not sure what all else they use for parts or who does most of the manu on them.

    CC are Yanmars and labeled as such right on the side of them. My machine is a Yanmar built tractor, but built to Deere's specs which are always above the original design. Brinly-Hardy tools come to mind. Same tools as Deere sells at their dealerships, only when Deere has them made by B-H for Deere, they are built way stouter.
