"When I was looking at everyone from Home Depot to TSC, to C & C sales, Farm and Home Hardware and others, a farmer friend of mine dropped off your sales circular and simply said, "a dealer will take care of you" and I told him, "yeah, probably if I was buying a $40,000 tractor", but I was wrong. You guys were great."
"Thanks for the help with the combine. (The other local Case IH dealer chain) showed up last night and changed the configurations. Works fantastic now. This is the second time you and your guys have saved us on equipment that we didn't purchase from you. It really shows us the kind of company you are running and we really appreciate it."

"In our pursuit of a new dependable tractor we reviewed our options of a Troy-bilt and a Cub Cadet. We visited the box stores to view both brand named units. The box stores reviewed with us the different features of both units. At Home Depot the store sales group stated that there was no security to insure that any units had not been tampered with. The units did not have any mechanic to insure the blades were in balance. Any unit including Cub Cadet would need to get additional servicing before usage. We decided to visit our nearest Cub Cadet Dealer which was Wellington Implement. We showed up at just as they were closing for the day. John Scheerer stopped and showed us around on his own time. He went through all the different units available at his location. We took some time to decide on which unit would work for our property. We had to measure to make sure the unit would fit through our storage barn doors. Our Barn measured 50” so the LTX 1046 tractor with the 48” deck would be perfect. The following week we returned to Wellington Implement to make our final decision. We met with sales man, Don Wacker. He let me sit on the LTX 1046 unit I was interested in, showed me all the great options. This was the selling point that I needed. I told him this would be the easiest sale he ever had. We walked into his office and signed the papers. I could not take the unit that day. Don told me about the 9 points that the dealership would review before my unit was ready for pickup. The blades were balanced, the tire inflation was checked, the battery was checked for a full charge, the oil was topped off, the fuel tank was filled the unit had been started and run. We had full warranty through their dealership. If our unit needed any service they would come and pick it up for servicing. Our unit was running when it was placed in our truck. The parking brake was set and we were on our way. At our location, we were ready to unload the tractor. We started it up and drove it down our ramps and we were ready to cut. I’m glad I took the time to make the decision to purchase a Cub Cadet from a dealership. We were treated great. It was a pleasure doing business with Wellington Implement and their team. I would recommend anyone to visit and purchase a unit from Wellington Implement. We are proud to be part of the Cub Cadet Family”
