Does Deere own Cub Cadet?

    The reason I ask is I stopped in at a dealer today to look at a renovator the guy said they had- it was a lesco renovator painted yellow. Started looking at the mowers and they looked like lesco's with cub colors and name. Even the spreaders looked like lesco. Did Deere sell the Lesco line to Cub, or do they own Cub? I can't keep up with who makes what anymore.

    Lesco's gear was made by Cub Cadet. Then Lesco was bought by John Deere. Cub Cadet is getting phased out of their little marriage from Hell... Not associated.

    I noticed there are some Lesco branded equipment on the Deere site. They've got a few walk behinds and a couple stand-on units. The stand-on's appear to be rebadged Everride Scorpion FX's.
