Is Cub Cadet Made in China? #

In the interest of full disclosure, it should be noted that Cub Cadet is a brand name owned by MTD Products Inc. - which does have some manufacturing operations in China. However, the Cub Cadet outdoor power equipment line is designed and engineered in the United States, and most of the components for those products are actually made here as well. Of course, there are a few components (e.g. bearings) that are sourced from abroad, but even then they're checked for quality and reliability before being included in a Cub Cadet product. So while MTD does have some manufacturing operations in China, Cub Cadet itself is not made there.

In conclusion, it is not clear if Cub Cadet is made in China. Some evidence suggests that the company may have moved some production to China, while other evidence suggests that the company is still manufacturing products in the United States. However, it is important to note that even if Cub Cadet products are made in the United States, they may still contain parts that are made in China. As a result, consumers should be aware of this when making a purchase decision.
