    Somebody dug up a real old thread yesterday, I got the e-mail notification, and proceeded to post the following, for which there was no response....

    So can anyone comment as to rather or not there has been any improvements sice the John Deere buy out? Or was this just an investment for JD where they just contimue to do their own thing?

    Just curious....

    i dont know exactly when the buyout was, but i bought a Gateway this year that is probably 3 years old (no hours though) and as far as the quality of product, i have been more than satisfied. although i have nothing to compare it to. as far as service, i guess it all depends on what dealers are in your area, but i would imagine that the local JD dealers could now get you GD parts as well. i dont think any of the models have changed at all. maybe the new super surfer, it may be similar to the JD stander model, but i really dont know for sure
