DSCF5697.JPG DSCF5692.JPG So Christmas came a bit early for my 5 year old. He had been wanting me to fix up a small chain drive MW lawn tractor that I got as part of a trade a while back. He said it was just his size. I put off redoing it cause it needed a lot! Was looking in one of my facebook groups and this thing appeared. 1979 MW 10 HP 34" deck. Was always garaged and serviced every year. Heck it still has a shine! I couldnt pass it up.As you can see in the first pic, He is thrilled with it. He has drove it already. Has a bit of minor carb issues, but otherwise is like new. Kicked on the deck when I was on it and it is super quiet! I glady gave the asking price of $200. I believe I got an excellent deal. the other pic is of the one I was going to fix for him, But I believe its going to be a parts machine now.DSCF5632.JPG

I think this is a really neat post. Congratulations on making someone very happy. 

My folks told me they were getting me a riding mower for my birthday when I was a kid. When my birthday came, no mower and no apology. Said they were just kidding. I was really hurt. I had already told all my friends what I was getting. So you made my day also. I'm so happy for your Son and I would have loved to have been there. Your a great Dad and Father!

Thanks again for the story. :thumbs:

I would like to find an owners manual for this if at all possible. Its a TMO33875A-- A221G. Not sure what the MTD equivalent would be. Any help is greatly appreciated!

It's a free download on MTD's manuals site.

Go here:  http://manuals.mtdpr...m/mtd/Public.do

 

Enter your model number (minus the a221g) and serial number (not important, any number will work) and follow the directions.

Oops, sorry about that. I pulled up the page that shows your model number but then didn't read what it said. I just assumed since it recognized your number the manual would be available.
