    Advertising people have to sell what is put in front of them. If a product has real advantages they do not have to depend on bogus gimmicks or put down the competition.

    The current crop of adds seems to indicate there is not all that much difference between the major brands.

    I agree, when you are saying that the floor mats make the difference then there ain't much difference.
    You would think that for the money that is at stake here they would put more effort into their add videos and that includes all the major manufacturers adds . I have yet to see one that wasn't amateurish and petty.

    I wish the ____________ brand vs ___________ brand videos would go away! Just tell me about your machine! It is up to me, the consumer, to do the comparison based on my purposes. These comparison vids usually compare apples to oranges.

    If my smaller JD was made in Mexico or China I'm gonna be pissed. I am good with some parts being outsourced to stay competitive, thats business, but not the whole tractor. I will have to add that to our "false advertising" lawsuit. Although I probably am OK with my Yanmar engine being made in Mexico. My 96 yo grandfather, having served in WWII is probably still holding a grudge. I'm gonna call him right now and let him know Yanmar produces their engines in Mexico and not Japan anymore.

    Another one of those things about everyone does, I have seen kubota pointing out how superior they are to John Deere. No doubt there are some features in the John Deere that I like and some in the Kubota, I could be happy in either one of them.
