John Deere or Cub Cadet.....which is better???

Recommended Posts

What type of machine??

Garden tractor style? ZTR? What's it going to be used for?

How close is the closest dealer of both?

How big is their shop?

Are you talking about buying one at Home Depot? Or a legit dealer?

I'll help you out, but these questions are the most important.

Cub Cadet is now owned by MTD. MTD makes mostly low end equipment. Cub Cadet is MTD's premium line.

John Deere is, well John Deere. If you buy from a dealer you can expect excellent dealer service. Their products really hold their value - you will often see 20 and 30 year old JD lawn and garden tractors that sell for much, much more than their original purchase price.

Having said that, I have a Ranch King lawn tractor made by MTD. If money was no object I would get a John Deere in a heartbeat.

I have a John Deere rider mower and love it. It's probably pushing 12 years old and runs like a champ. This is the second one that I've had. Dealer/ customer service is great like KatoMike said. I wouldn't go with anything else.

As alluded to by LwnmwnMan2, it’s important to know your dealer and their location. At some point during the life of your machine you will need some type of service and you want to make sure you have a dealer close by to provide that service. If you are considering purchasing through Lowes or HD, I suggest that you get familiar with the closet dealer since Lowes and HD do not provide service for the lawn tractors they sell OR, better yet, purchase the machine from your local dealer; they sell the same machines for the same price. JD has a good reputation and I think CC does as well. Another brand that you might consider is Simplicity. I went with a JD due to the location of the dealer…or was it the hat? smile.gif

John Deere has 2 lines of mowers. They have their regular line and then they have their Sabre line. Which is no better then a CC. In fact CC is probably built better. In buying a lawn mower look at 3 main things. 1. How well is the deck built. 2. Get an engine that has a horizontal camshaft and not a vertical. 3. Make sure it has a beer holder. I would also get a hydro. If money was no object I would definately get a Woods.

    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
