I have a white yard boss 1855 and am looking for attachments for it. Specifically a tiller first but would have interest an any factory attachments. I haven't had any luck so far but this is my first post on Internet for them. Thanks in advance.
Attachments for the MTD 995, White GT1655, and it's various re-badged models should work as well.

Welcome to GTTAlk. If a 3pt. or sleeve hitch is available for that tractor then you won't be limited to a certain brand of attachments.

Welcome , and congrats on the White, Is it a silver stripe, red stripe or the later white outdoor?
Any cat o implements work on the three point, but tillers can be hard to find.

Nice red stripe, When White filed chapter 11 in around 80' , they sold the farm equipment division to Allied out of Texas. They operated under WFE until 82' and then sold to ACGO, the lawn and garden got sold to Mtd who was building them anyway.
So you have one of the last collectables , with the aluminum grille and flashing tail lights. Again ,NICE TRACTOR.

I have a 2055 that looks like that one, lights on fenders and same dash! I have a snow blade for it, but not for sale. I put the blade on my older 990 with quick-hitch, so probly many 990 attachments should work. The later White three-point is diff, but the arms are about same, just the upper rock-shaft is used instead of the L-shaped arms like 990's. Mine also has a big 5ft Woods deck that must be close to same as rear-finish Woods. Everyone who seems my deck laying outside wants to buy it and make it mount on three point for their tractor. Guess just the mounts are the difference. It has the gear box that uses a pto shaft to run it.

The grille on the silver stripe 1655 and 1855 and the red stripe 1855 are different than your 2055. They are cast aluminum to look like the big tractors. White and WFE didn't offer a 2055, that came after Mtd bought white outdoor.
The tractors are similar to get some parts yet from Mtd. I know the pto cables are no longer available and I got the last 5 tail lights that mtd had in warehouse a few years ago.

Here r a couple (if I did it right) had white for around 10 years its a work horse. With what it's been three it should be paraded only but nah still workin her.
Very Similar to my Dayton 3Z678 (White 995 with different Sheet Metal). Mine has a B&S 18hp flat twin, hydro lever is on the left like yours, but tail lights are different.... also, mine's gold in color.... Dayton's were sold through W.W. Grainger's catalog.

The tail lights on the Whites were actually cab marker lights used on White trucks in the sixties, with a different colored lense . On my GT1655 , they are hooked up through a flasher, I don't know about the red stripes ,because I haven't found any yet , but the later MTD white outdoor stuff isn't, I had an 1855 parts tractor I bought that they didn't even run wires to them.

My lights look like the Cab lights, but non flashing on mine either! That would drive me nuts if they did. Might be alright for snow blowing in darker nights or mornings if around drives or something. Don't see reason for it otherwise.

The lights worked both ways, flip the switch one direction and they're solid marker lights, flip them the other way and the current goes thru a flasher. Kinda unique for a garden tractor, the working tail lights go along with that WHITE was the only ones to put reflective triangles on the back of the seats.
