I have a post concerning my new 2544 with a broken hood. I was comparing some more things between my old LT1045 and this new one (besides the obvious). On the 2500 series there are no MTD blade of grass logos anywhere. The 1045 has one on the center of the hood, and each side on the logo. I know MTD owns cub, but are the 2500 built at the same factory, same standards...... Just curious why MTD didn't put their mark on them either.
