The bolt on rear wheels and the fender shape would have me guessing a late 70s MTD.

Nope, no ID's... it'a a CL find that I'm probably going to pick up if the rear end is any count. I know it's a shaft driven, hydro unit with hydraulic deck lift... Really those two things make it worth getting for me. To boot the front end looks like a solid piece for my wagon.

It almost looks like a OMC mower. Let me look around a bit.

finally talked to the guy, he said it's a Duetz and he thought it was an 18hp so based on that and these pictures I think it's a Duetz-Allis 1918. (NOTE: these pic's are just google results for Duetz 1918)

Wasn't the Deutz equivalent to a Simplicity Sunstar?  If so, if I remember right, those are still pretty desirable tractors for work.

Yes, many people over look the Deutz because they were Allis brand, but basic same tractor as Sunstar which is pretty desirable.

 

2Step, any plans or just using rearend?

Wow, I hope you get it for a good price. Those were very heavy built GT's.

 

Here is some info on the trans.,

 

1. Reliable hydrostatic transmission.  A perfect complement to Kohler Magnum power! With direct shaft drive from engine. The Sundstrand 15 Series hydrostatic transmission has proven its reliability on larger tractors. 

2. Massive transaxle. There is no better transaxle available in a garden tractor. Features automotive-type steel bevel gears and large diameter axles. 

3. Super "Dual-Poise" stability.  Massive cast-iron steering axle improves lateral stabilia, through a unique double-pivoting system. This "Dual-Poise" front axle with rugged 1" diameter spindles provides a degree of ground-hugging performance conventional designs can't match plus tight 26' turning radius. 

4. Single-lever hydraulic lift.  Raise or low ~ front, mid or rear attachments with fingertip ease, without special hydraulic extras. Dual hydraulic control with front outlets is optional.

Cast-iron axle housing with ball-bearing-supported axle shaft provides greatest load-carrying capacity. Massive automotive type steel bevel gears mean extra-long life. Single range on 1918, Dual-range with differential lock on 1920.

Thanks guys. You all are right from what I've seen/read. It does not have power steering :( but it does have the deck lift. It does have a sunstrand 15 series rearend. It only has the single brake setup but the rear end is set up for duals. I plan to use the both axles and the lift cylinder/valve. I have no means to repower and no need/desire really. I didn't ask about a deck or hood but if he has them I'll see if I can fit them.

 

I'm heading that way at 4pm to get it... I'm in my car so might see a funny picture of me on the interenets somewhere.
