Both saws are made by Efco in Italy and are good saws. The JD CS46 is the Efco 147, a high end homeowner/farm saw. The Cub Cadet is the 156 Efco. A pro grade 56 cc saw.

The 156 is probably the most under rated saw in it's class.  Very good saw IMO.  Have 2 of them.  Other Efco's include 6-165, 1-7200, 1-181, 2-8200.  Good dependable saws and excellent value.

thanks for the info. he will be happy to hear that. i haven't heard of efco. i am surprised that they don't have thier own dealerships around here. at least he will know that he won't have to go to 2 different dealerships for parts.
