Hi guys. I’m new to the forum and a have recently developed an interest in vintage garden tractors. This looks like the place for answers. A co-worker of mine has a 1969 MTD 700 for sale at a reasonable price. It is in good running shape(smokes a little) but it is missing the mower deck. What are the odds of finding one? I’ve searched online and I don’t seem to see very much for the 700 at all. Would a deck from a different MTD work or should I keep looking for another more complete tractor. I’d like to restore the tractor this winter and use it for mowing next summer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

First thing you need to know, is that while we are a friendly bunch, we do get a little surly at times if there are no pictures, so unlimber your camera. :D :D :D

As for info on your tractor, your best bet is to pop over to the MTD forum for the real experts.

Welcome to the forum.Glad to have you with us.

Just a guess,but I would think the deck would need to be from that series.

Good looking tractor. I was completely unaware that MTD even made tractors back as far as 1969.
