cylinder piston finish

Why does JD use a chrome coating on their backhoe cylinders, whereas the FEL cylinders have the black nitride finish?
From what I've read, seems like the non-chrome finishes are generally considered to be superior.

Good question, I suspect that different vendors make the FEL's and BH's but that is just a WAG.
