My girlfriend brought this home yesterday. Anyone know much about these. Thought it was interesting that it had a horizontal shaft engine and not vertical.

She is a keeper! and the tractor too. The engine looks from the late 60s. MTD made some good GTs in those days. Good Luck, Rick

I still have an old MTD Eight Hundred out in a shed that I mowed with for over 25 years. It seemed old when I got it in 1980.

 

It looks a lot like yours and has an 8HP Briggs horizontal crank engine.
