    Is this a trick question? I never knew that MTD wasn't cheaply made and sold. ;)

    He's talking about back when Cub Cadet was owned by International Harvestor and they made only garden tractors or shall i say miniture farm tractors because they were built just like a farm tractor. I have a 102 with a 12 hp Kohler that is 30 years old with a tiller and snow blade and its just like a farm tractor only on a smaller scale. Thats when they used to be the best and I still think that they have the best Riding mowers even though they are owned by MTD they are still built better than anything else.

    The zturns at TSC are the homeowner versions. They're not Cub commercial.

    That zero turn Cub at Tractor Supply is supposed to compete with the little homeowner Dixsons and Toros. I hope you don't think those type of units are made for a pro to use, do you ?

    The commercial grade machines [Cub Tank] are built and perform just fine. Many many people post on Lawn Site about how well their Cubs and Lesco brand zero turns perform. These machines are only sold by real servicing dealers though, not Tractor Supply or any other box store.

    My Cub Tank is great. I dont think these are crap machines at all. The Cub Commerial is what you want and not at all cheaply made.
