I have this pequea fluffer type pto powered tedder which is kind of slow and obviously is not what any of my neighbors seem to be using. I went to the closest Deere dealer the largest on of their seven storefronts and went to the sales side for a change. I said I was intrested in a tedder but would rather have one that said Deere on it than Frontier. I was informed there were two models branded Frontier made by pequea and they could give me a better price on the Frontier one. Told me there was one out on the lot, which there wasn't or they could bring in a lighter one from another storefront. Why doesn't Deere want their name on tedders any more? I called Pequea which is located in New Holland Pa strangely, and they connected me to a very informative source. Yes the only difference between pequea and Deere is paint and decals for all practical purposes. I am pretty sure the lighter duty one is Kuhn and the same as a New Holland 163. That is kind of what I was wanting to discuss, There are both deere and frontier disc mowers.
I found a new holland 162 which I also think is made by or Kuhn and looks like a Deere model 751 I see on tractorhouse.com. I also see deere models 752 and 754 which seem to fold up the same way. Does anyone know if besides the draw bar neck and guards is there any much difference in the deere models. I am comfortable with both deere and NH for parts.
