Is it a Qualcast? Is it a MTD? Or is it a Lawnflite Lawn Tractor?

Looking at the ride-on lawnmowers on the Homebase web site I noticed that two of them, the Qualcast Q36125 and MTD SMART RE125, looked identical apart from the colour they were painted. They were exactly the same price too.

Looking at the specifications listed for the two lawn tractors they are identical apart from the listed power. It looks as if these two 92cm cutting width ride on mowers are variations on the same machine, the smaller engined Qualcast being manufactured for Homebase by MTD.

I recalled MTD (Modern Tool and Die Company) also own the Lawnflite brand of garden machinery and decided to see it there was a Lawnflite ride on lawnmower that looked the same and on the MowDirect web site found the Lawnflite 703 RT Lawn Tractor and the Lawnflite 903 RT Lawn Tractor (pictured below).

The Lawnflite 703 RT is a 92cm cutting width lawn tractor like the MTD and Qualcast above. It is powered by a 344cc 13.5hp Briggs & Stratton engine.

The Lawnflite 903 RT has a larger 105cm cutting width, and is fitted with a larger 500cc 15.5 hp Briggs & Stratton engine.

Both Lawnflite machines are currently lower priced at MowDirect than the MTD and Qualcast are at Homebase.
