Mtd 700 Questions.
Posted September 26, 2012 - 11:30 AM
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.

MTD has a site for downloading manuals. It's at: http://manuals.mtdpr...m/mtd/Public.do
Type in 149660 as the model number and anything as a serial number (I like "5") and then select the second one on the list and you'll have your manual.
Good luck on the mower deck. I've never even seen a seven hundred.

I uploaded a manual for the '69 model year to the MTD manuals section.

the aforementioned at the MTD website comes up as a Cub Cadet - that is not the right info
The one GT fanatic dropped on is correct (close enough)
