Here's a couple of pics of an MTD mower I modded.  I got the deck with a blown Honda GX on it.  Adapted a Briggs to it, like God intended.  I told my 21 yr old neighbor kid MTD made this mower to go to the moon on the space shuttle for advertising purposes and he believed it.  So I devoted the paintjob/makeover to him.  Anyone got any history on these?  I've only seen two in my travelsGEDC0339.JPG GEDC0344.JPG .

I think MTD made this mower to go to the moon on the space shuttle for advertising purposes and to mow the moonshine!

I remember seeing those for sale at Sam's Club a few years back. I thought a stainless deck seemed like an incredible idea... then I tipped it back and discovered they used such a thin guage of metal that I could flex the chassis by hand. I guess a decent piece of stainless would have been cost prohibitive.
