Good question.

I have sales brochures from three different versions of the 990 and all show different weights.

The '71 MTD brochure lists the weight as 875 lbs.

The '75 Columbia brochure says it's 1035 lbs.

A late '70s White brochure also says 1035 lbs.

 

I'm wondering if the 160 lb. difference is the deck?  Maybe the Columbia and the White have a deck as standard equipment?  I can't imagine what would be different between the tractors that would make that much difference.  I know the 3-point hitch was standard on some models and not others but that's no where near that much weight.  Same with the grills being different castings on all three.

The decks on the Whites and Columbias are an option just like the standard MTD, the grille on a MTD is about 11 pounds , the White and Columbia are a little heavier but the White uses a fiberglass hood. So I'm with you Jim, I don't see where they get that big of a weight difference.
