100$ find Craftsman Garden Tractor

My 12th (yes 12th ) tractor.

Asking price was 150$ got it for 100$ CAD.

B&S Twin 422707, Peerless 2351, 44" mower deck in very good condition


Does not start, the wiring is a mess cut wires etc... I'll check that later this week. Repainted with John Deere colors by previous owner...

I'm having trouble with the serial number, it doesn't match with craftsman's serials (or I'm missing something). Steering wheel is branded craftsman but it may had been changed... The sticker was painted by previous owner it's the best I can do to have a clear look at it. Maybe you guys will be able to tell me what exact tractor I have here

Looks like a MTD 800 series to me.

Definitely not a Craftsman machine. Most likely a MTD unit.

I found that pic in google images, it's confusing, it's the same tractor, all the stuff in the same place, 44" mover deck, except the color And mine before it was repainted, was grey like this one.

Re: 100$ find Craftsman Garden Tractor

That doesn't look like a craftsman model number you posted. MTD made a lot of tractors for crafsman over the years so it's possible that it's actually a Crafsman. A similar model was probably sold under a dozen different brands with a CVT, Hydro, and gear driven transaxel. Also with several different mower decks, hoods and dash.

Edit:
I totally forgot about Canadian models. It is a craftsman manufactured by MTD for the Canadian market. It really looks like one of these https://www.manualslib.com/manual/10...ct-148-823-000

Not familiar with Canada market so I also stand corrected! Pretty nice looking unit for the money either way!

Re: 100$ find Craftsman Garden Tractor

Thanks a lot for you help, it's the machine I have, and yes I'm from Canada

Charged the battery yesterday, changed the ignition switch with one from a donor tractor I have here, clean up the mess in the wiring and it started right up. Engine runs very good, and transaxle is engaging all gears. Will change oil in engine and transaxle and it needs some work in the mower deck area, when engaging there is a lot of bad sounds coming from under. Needs some maintenance on the fuel hoses too. It's raining today so it's time for that
