Comment: The new addition shows the ongoing commitment of Cub Cadet to their utility vehicle offerings. The utility vehicle market has become so competitive in both the work and recreation segments that it requires a continuing investment in new product development and new models. A crew version in a product line is almost a necessity in order to maintain a solid presence in the market. The amount of resources needed to maintain a sufficient level of product development and new product introductions can be substantial for smaller volume manufacturers.
