I guess the sad reality is people want to pay as little as possible for their garden tractors.

Enthusiasts (like the folks on this forum) know they can buy older machines that will last nearly forever and are worth rebuilding when they wear out. But, just ask your neighbors if they would replace their lawnmower with a new model before their old one is flat-out dead :biglaugh:

People come into my shop all the time looking for a "good used" garden tractor and I tell them I've never seen one. It's like finding an "affordable" apartment in New York City, check the obituaries :goodl:

At least Briggs is still headquartered in Wisconsin and actually employs Americans. I think we all know why stuff isn't made the way it used to be anymore, at least the name is being kept alive by Briggs and not Cheng Hua Corp.
