Standard Duty vs Heavy Duty

This is a great video. A lot of the points that this guy makes are not apparent in the literature from Cub Cadet.

Eh, if that's the "heavy duty" bucket that the guy is bending with his hand, I'd hate to see what the other bucket does.

The heavy duty is worth the extra dough, this is a good and informative video. MTD seems to offer a pretty good bang for your buck, however I don't think their Powermore engines are as durable as LCT's offerings. Ariens also uses a heavier gauge steel on the auger housing side panels of their Pro Series machines along with a boron steel shave plate.

NO, not all by any means. I had a Craftsman back in the 80's that had sides so thin I wondered how it held together. Got rid of it after one year

The Cub Cadet machines get very high ratings in CR.

That's the thing about Craftsman more than any other is identifying who actually built the critter in trying to determine the quality.
I have a long list of manufacturers that are designated by the first three digits of the Sears model number. The "xxx". xxxxxxx
