From the beginning, Cub Cadet has existed to help people realize the potential of their outdoor world. The original Cub Cadet garden tractor was built in 1961 to help the emerging suburban homeowner make the most of their property. Over the years, the way people live have changed, and we've challenged ourselves to truly understand and embrace their real needs. It's why the person who uses our products is central to everything we do. But this steadfast focus on understanding our customer doesn't just change our products or our operations.
