 cub cadets v.s. john deere

My boyfriend is interested in getting a lawn tractor for our new place. Of our farmer friends one swears by anything international, the other says john deere has the best rating. We would like to know what others think on easy use, reliability, and upkeep. Does one break down more often, is up keep more expensive on one than the other.....

The two brands mentioned are very comparable as far as durability. There are some creature comforts that are different but for the most part it would be a flip of the coin for the value to the owner. Some people talk about resale values but unfortunately they forget to talk about the cost of ownership. That is the cost that during your period of ownership that you will incur maintaining the product that you bought. Many times there are costs of ownership that when considered and subtracted from the resale value will equalize the increased preceived value that some feel they have.

I have a 1970 cub lawn tractor, forget the model I think 129, but, that makes no difference. I just now had the 8hp engine replaced, (700 and change) since 1970. I don't think heavy, heavy use, year in and out for 24 years straight is too bad.. IH makes awesome products. Although not the same type tractor, I was an owner operator of tractor trailers for many years and most of my rigs were also IH..

M., some of it depends on the models. If you ask about a Deere 4110 or 4115, the reliability is legendary but the 4210 through 4710 are not in that category.

I haven't studied the CUB line, but it is possible that, like Deere, there may be two or more countries involved in the production of some models.

If you fine tune your question, e.g. Cub 5234D vs. Deere 4110, then we can get down to brass tacks.

M. both brands you mention are good tractors and with good care will last for years. Myself I have Deere, but that's based on years of good relations with the dealer. Between the two I would choose the brand with the most farm based business in your aeria, they seem to have better prices and generally stay in business longer than the lawn and garden only type dealers do. The dealership that I work with seems to have had their compact tractor and lawn and garden equipment dept grow to be a major part of their operation. It kind of boils down to which dealership is close by and you feel the most comfortable working with. Frank.

Dear M.Young, Having had several Cub Cadets in the family business I can tell you that one could do much worse. But be advised, the current Cub Cadets have absolutely NOTHING to do with International the manufacturer. Today's Cubs are manufactured for MTD by various foreign and domestic suppliers like Mitsubishi and Kioti. When the time came to buy another, I looked hard at the new 8000 series Cubs (re. Kioti DK40 & DK45) and decided on a Deere, mainly because of better features and dealer support.

As good as the Cubs 5254 is, its not quite on the level of the 4100-4110...its very cost effective and I do like them
but I like my 4100 better...

Its more likely the 7284 is more a match on lift capacity but its heavier and more HP (it has a Caterpillar 28 HP diesel) than the 4110 & 4115

I got to wondering myself. I thought it was lawn tractors and posted about my real old cub model.. Guess I'll have to take a little more time in reading.
