Are you thinking of purchasing a Cub Cadet lawn tractor? We frequently receive questions about the difference in buying a Cub Cadet from a dealership like Timberstar, versus a big box store. We test and stand behind every single product we bring onto our yard at Timberstar (with the exception of manure spreaders, of course!) and have found Cub Cadet lawn tractors to be some of the best small lawn tractors available. However, there are a few key differences in the experience and the actual machinery you might want to keep in mind when purchasing a Cub Cadet from either Timberstar or a big box store.
Is There a Difference in a Cub Cadet Lawn Tractor from a Dealer Vs. a Box Store?
If you’ve done some online shopping, you might notice the model number of the hood of a Cub Cadet on Timberstar’s site looks exactly the same as a tractor on big box stores. However, the tractor you’re looking at might be priced slightly higher on our site – why is that?
While the model number on the hood might be the same, the contents under the hood usually aren’t. As an official Cub Cadet lawn tractor dealer, Timberstar has access to a more robust version of Cub Cadet’s product line. The price difference is usually pretty small in comparison to the increase in power and efficiency you receive in the tractor.
However, if you’re looking to compare prices, you can find our Cub Cadet pricing on our product page here.
Cub Cadet Parts and Service: Servicing Your Cub Cadet Lawn Tractor
Purchasing from the pros means your tractor will always be built, serviced and maintained by the pros. Our Timberstar mechanics are officially certified from Cub Cadet and know the parts, service requirements, and nuances of each model we carry.
This means complete peace of mind when you go home with your Cub Cadet zero-turn or lawn tractor.
If you’ve purchased from Timberstar, your tractor has been assembled with the utmost care and attention to detail by factory trained techs. Before delivery, each tractor goes through a rigorous PDI process to ensure every part of your tractor is ready to use.
Our techs are graded on performance in the locally owned shops as well as by Cub Cadet, meaning they have a vested interest in doing excellent work – every time.
Our shop team also services every Cub Cadet sold. If you ever run into an issue with your machine, our Cub Cadet parts and service team is there for you to find the right part, troubleshoot the issue, or even just perform regular maintenance.
Cub Cadet Warranty
Cub Cadet tractors are rigorously built to give you a cut above the rest – mow after mow. If you plan on investing in Cub, we recommend purchasing from somewhere with an excellent warranty plan. Warranties are performed at local Cub Cadet lawn tractor dealers, and may not always be available from a box store. Make sure to check with your sales rep on the warranty available before purchasing it!
