Picked up another lawn tractor today; plan to get it going as my usual mower to finally give my old Jacobsen (one of my favorite tractors) a little rest. It is a "Scotts" brand (as in the grass seed and fertilizer company); pressed steel; had a lighter duty LT transaxle. Maybe made by MTD? If anyone knows of who made these I'm curious. I'd never seen one before this one but it seems like it will be nice once I get it fixed up a little. 42" cut and a 15hp OHV Kohler command engine. Engine is a 1997 so guessing it's around there (almost unbelievably new for my collection!). Should be a nice mower; I always have my Bolens and cub cadet for garden tractors.

I think we have the shop manual for that in the Manuals Section. I have a dead 1742. Good Luck, Rick

Its made by Murray. 1997 was the first year.

I have seen some Scotts lawn tractors with the John Deere logo. These were the later ones sold.  

 

 

 

I have a Sabre (JD) which is very similar

Looks like a typical MTD/Murray clone of that time period.

Many of the models were made by John Deere.  Here is a break down.
