    As most of you know i own a 48 inch hydro floatdeck W/B and a 54 inch ZTWO. I was aleays under the impresion that MTD made the mowers. My Lesco rep told me today that they are not made by MTD. I cant remember who he said. Can anyone clear this up?

    I think its a company called CTP, don't quote me but, stands for commercial turf product. I also believe they make hydro gear and vickers pumps/motors, which alot of mower brands use. Good products. :)

    As I understand it, CTP started out as a joint venture between Lesco and Cub Cadet (MTD). MTD bought out Lesco. CTP is a subsidary (sp?) of MTD. They build the Cub Cadet commercial stuff and they also build/private label the Lesco stuff. However, they only build mowers. They do not make the pumps nor the motors.
