Got my MTD Garden Tractor today!
Had a good time getting it.
I decided it was too far to drive my Diesel on the road to retreive it, so I Got my little cousin, and I too my truck up the road with some chain.
We hooked onto the back of it and pulled it out of the overgrowth and got a good look at it. The sttering was locked up, but a few kicks fixed that. All 4 tires had been slashed at some point.
So I broke off the hood and front grille parts, they were rough anyways, and in the way. Hooked onto the front of the frame and got my cousin to sit on the seat and guide it while I pulled him 3/4 mile back to my place. Had a few tense moments at 20mph, but got it home.
Got the motor to turn over easy enough, deck looks great, belts look good, and it has a Peerless 618-0229 Peerless gearbox, and the SHIFT ON THE GO Variator setup that gives it 14 forward speeds, and 7 reverse speeds.
It says it is a GARDEN TRACTOR...and it has 12" rear wheels with 4 bolt hubs...is it capable?
Has an 18.5 hp Briggs opposed Twin.
