Firstly, Hi - I'm a new member and new to this whole game but just moved into a house with a big yard and thought, why not.

I bought a lawn tractor on ebay with front and rear plow for $250.. thought that was pretty good, but have been having a really hard time identifying it.. MOSTLY because someone has given it a paint job ( including over the identification plate ) and worse, put "FORD" on the hood ;-)

Well I stumbled across a picture of a MTD, and that is for sure what it is but would appreciate help with more details.

I got my hands on a 1998 parts list for models 820-829 and 840-849 and based on the orientation of the shifter gate, this matches Style 4 models 824 and 844.

What's the difference? Could it be a different year?

In summary:

18hb B&S
46" Deck
14 speed

Any help appreciated.

Keith

Post some other pics, like dash and front and rear so we have a better ideal what we're looking at. Welcome to the site. Jeff

Can you post the numbers off the tag on the motor? What color is it under the hood? There has to be original paint somewhere on it. Your shift pattern is the same as my 1994 & 95 18/46.
