Not too often that one can compare the markup between different machinery companies accurately. Recently I have been comparing some front mount snow blowers offered by various companies that are all manufactured by the same third party and have some identical parts. So I priced a gearbox that is the same on all machines.
John Deere $986
New Holland $2284
Edit, Local machine shop builds snowblowers as well and appears to use the same gearbox. $269
