My wife & I went on a five hour round trip today to New Salisbury, Ind. to look at one of my wish list GT's a Sears SS15 BUT! while looking at that I saw another one on my wish list the MTD 990. This is a Turf Trac 16 HP Hydro. It's a little rough but I have wanted one of these for a long time. After buying the SS15 the seller gave me a very good deal on this one. He has the generator but maybe not the belt guard. It has the typical surface rust, mis matched tires, missing seat & no headlights but I'm very happy with today's load I got. I'm not sure if it has the hydraulic lift or not & it has two number plates so I don't know which I should use to look up what badge name this one had or what year it was made. I know these had a lot of names but learning from you folks on here my guess would be a Yard Man. I also know that having a complete undamaged dash is rare on these & the front grille being intact with no damage. The seller was a wonderful gentlemen & very enjoyable to talk to. He said he just got it back in the summer & it ran good then...running or not I'm happy with it.
Here are the two numbers I was talking about
