Bought tractor off epay, hope it's good as shown.  Will be a roadtrip to get it.  Should be same as a MTD 990 yet not the Feild Boss type. Has a twin Briggs and is hydro, 3pt. Said to have Noisy mower deck.  Hope just some bearings or something. Not really for mowing anyway. Pix to come as I get over there and home with it.

Did you buy that nice looking one with the 3 point that has been on there forever?? The one I am thinking about  seems like it was listed for  a year now.

Oh cool I'm very very glad some one on here picked up that one.

 

Is this the one that you got?

It's a very clean GT2055 and a good price if this is it.

Congrats on this new one Grumpy.  I think you have been working on one already, is it finished?  If so, I've missed the pictures.

Eric, that's it!  Was $1201.oo and I made offer to make a few payments. He didn't wanna do that, so made $875 offer when he said he would take less for cash. Suprised I got it actually. Looks nice in those pics anyway. There is another one listed that has some attachments with it, but rougher and cheaper.   I don't need gardening attachments. Like blades mostly.

 

Howard, haven't done much on other one. Have chassis painted and together, engine has spark again and painting it up. I dont do much in winter, too cold in garage and so full can't work in there now. Was out there a little when warmed here this week, but did Whorse stuff instead. Will have to get help getting engine off bench and on to frame now, and can progress some. Used my engine hoist to lift up to table, but it is apart and laying in parts now too!  I cram and Jamb into garage for winter months. Did run around again and start all the big MM's tho Saturday.

OK, here's some numbers off pix of tag.       190.740-190

                                                                       A8W1565

 

Wondering what all this means?   I was thinking there was a place to go to get info on reading these numbers for year and such, but might be thinking of Briggs site for engines, not tractors.  Can't find in google the actual MTD website. Anyone have actual address?   Anyone wanna take a shot at interpeting this for year?

Homesteader, you are the "Manual Man" around here for sure.  I used that link to get my manuals printed of tractor, engine and deck. You are correct that the number above was for the deck. So, don't have tractor numbers at this time. I just used GT2055 and put any number in the search box for serial and it brought them up still. Lookin' good on my end! Thanks! I saved your link in favorites. When I went to MTD site, seemed hard to use and only wanted to discuss 98 or later models that I could find.

The White 2055 is a model 992.  It looks like they made them from '95-'99 based on the manuals available on MTD's site, althought they don't show one for '97.

 

I made a chart showing all the MTD GT models and production years based on manuals listed on that site.  I really need to get it posted here.  Maybe I'll get a chance tonight.

Jim's about right, the 2055 was made from 94-99, the base model goes back to 79 in 16hp, the 1655 was only made one year and in 80 became the 1855 with an 18hp briggs. The basic tractor is the same , they were silver stripe with cast aluminum grilles until about 81 ,then became WFE red stripe, with the steel grille. In around 84 the outdoor division was sold to MTD and then carried the red side with the mustang on the side.

  If you go on PARTSTREE.COM, you can see what parts are still available from MTD. I know the tail lights, PTO engagment cable and that kinda stuff are no longer available, I had to buy an 1855 parts tractor to get the items to fix my 1655.

  Enjoy your tractor Grumpy, looks like you got nice one!
