If SpecCast's John Deere LA with sickle bar mower is any indication of what they will do with the cub, then I am excited. The price is about $42 for the John Deere LA.
Look at the attention to detail with the steering column, how it is closer to scale than Ertl. The wheels are closer to scale and more detail. IT is a far superior model. Ertl built their's based on a toy that would be played with. This is not built for play, but more for big kids like us.
So Far, they have done a plain John Deere LA, an LA with a one row corn planter, and an LA with a sickle bar mower. All of them are reasonably priced for the quality you get.
