The limited edition Cub Cadet GTX 2154 LE garden tractor. 

To help continue their 50th anniversary celebration, Cub Cadet has donated a limited edition Cub Cadet GTX 2154 LE garden tractor to be raffled off during this year’s Half Century of Progress Show, August 25-28, 2011 in Rantoul, Ill., with proceeds benefiting the Illinois FFA Foundation. One of the largest working tractor events in the world- this year’s Half Century of Progress Show presented the perfect opportunity for Cub Cadet to celebrate their own half-century of success.

“Very few dealers have one of these limited edition garden tractor,” stated Mike Silberhorn of Cub Cadet. “In fact, they’ll be very hard to come by, as most dealers have already sold the few models that were on the market. This event celebrates the history of the industry and we’re happy to be part of it as we look forward to the next 50 years of innovation.”

In addition to its legendary shaft-drive system and rugged build, the limited-edition tractor offers electronic power steering, an electronic deck lift, deluxe seats and a heavy duty grill guard. It also offers the winner a 54” fabricated deck, a one-of-a-kind paint scheme and ergonomic controls. The GTX 2154 LE garden tractor originally retails for $7,000.

The winner of the limited edition Cub Cadet will be drawn during the Half Century of Progress Show. To purchase tickets, go to www.halfcenturyofprogress.com, or mail payment directly to: Cub Cadet, PO Box 76, Penfield, IL 61862. Raffle tickets are $1 apiece, or five tickets for $6.
