Here's a couple pic's of my 990. This time last year it was on the jack stands stripped to the frame. This ain't no trailer queen. I built this one to work. Rebuilt a 50" mower deck for it. I have a plow I had to retro fit to it. Currently use it to plow my driveway. I also have picked up a roto tiller for it. Hopefully put in a food plot up on my property in N. Michigan. Enjoy.

Almost to pretty to work. Glad you're enjoying it.
Looks like it will plow a driveway with a little weight on the tires, how much did you have to add?

Those pictures look professional, did you take them yourself? Good Job, whoever did.

I made a version of a heavy hitch for my 3pt. My Bud gave me some old rectangle weights off a workout machine. I have 60lbs on the back of it. It works great. No chains or anything. Future plans include loading the tires with rimguard.
I took the pic's and work in the graphic arts field. So I like taking pic's of what I do. Sometimes not enough though.

You did an excellent job on your tractor.
Thanks for posting it.

Your photos bring back fond memories.
About 6-fears ago, I had a 990 that I had put a grader blade on. It was a very dependable tractor and a hard worker.
I've always regretted selling it.

That is a great looking MTD 990 you have there Zelda. It is nice when they are trailer queens because you don't have to clean them as often but they are not near as fun that way. Glad to see and hear you are working her. :D :thumbs:

What tires did you go with on the front and back I am possibly picking a Farm King 990 up this weekend and would like to get it set up for hard work tilling and working my small timber trails.  That is a sweet looking machine.
