Default Worthington ag parts

Yall' ain't gonna believe this chit.
I ordered brake lining discs for my Ih 400 loader tractor, because after 54 years, the OEM ones just plum wore out.
Since the rain won't stop more than 1 day, and
I can't "Do it in the dirt" unless I use a drone seeder, I might as well
get to the little annoying, rainy day jobs.
I hit the "buy it now" button on ebay just after noon on Thursday.
22 hours later, Friday about 10 AM, the brown truck driver put the package in my hand.
I have never had an item delivered that fast through an ebay purchase.
Did I mention it was "Free shipping" which is usually USPS and a week or so delivery time.
Hats off to Worthing ag parts!!
Not my first purchase from them and not my last, for sure.

Looks like they are in Evansville Wisconsin which is right across your big lake. Maybe the post office invested in a speed boat? I like being surprised when things are ordered and the vendor is close. Has never happened that fast on eBay though so that’s impressive. It was your time to win Curious George congrats!

I think they drop ship from various locations.
Ebay listed it as in Indiana,and USPS did not deliver it, da big brown truck did.
I do see usps delivering multiple times a day, but it is amazon stuff.
Ebay listed the ETA as guaranteed by Wednesday, which was a 6 day window.
But 22 hrs was a big surprise.
I have over 500 purchases from evil pay over the years, so I have some experience with various shipping methods.
It is nice to hear good news once in a while, and give credit where it is due.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
