It looks like there is something funky going on with the hydro drive lever too, or maybe it's just the angle of the picture. Seems like there is a lot of "customization" on that 990. No mower deck? 3 point hitch? What is up with the original hydraulics if the hoses have been run to the front? If it runs and drives I'd go $200, If it doesn't, pass on it or about $100.

:rauch10: i don't know what you guys are thinking but just ask yourself whats the plow worth? whats the motor worth ? etc. or any part of this tractor. the parts are so hard to come by buy its a no brainer, you can allways use or sell the parts. its like lay's potato chips bet you can't eat just one.and so it will be with mtd 990 you will buy more then one .note i restored 3 of them myself sold them all for over a 1000.00ea.one for 1400.00 buy it:thThumbsU

You make a point tommypaul, but your restos must have been very nice to have commanded those prices.

Of the 4 990s I've owned, all ran when I got them, and cost anywhere from $0.00 to $450.00.

A non-running, heavily customized tractor with rain-gauge for a muffler just scares me a bit.
