1979 MTD 44" cut 18 H.P. , that's all I know, looks heavy duty but would like an MTD person's input. I understand some of these had Onan's. Any help would be appreciated, I'm looking for a tow, small bucket, back up mower tractor to go with my 4041 front loader.

Pics would help. It might be a 990 which is a good GT. Look in our Gallery under MTD. Good Luck, Rick

Not a 990. If it is a 900 series (990,995) it should have a 42" or 50" or even 55" inch deck. The only 18 hp 900 series model was any of the later 995's (Same as White GT-1855).

I would have swore that you were right,until a few weeks ago when on a Onan sight a guy had a MTD with a vertical shaft Onan twin. I wouldn't believe it until I saw pictures. The tractor has a vertical twin cylinder Onan.

Looks like a Briggs to me. That one is more of a YT ( yard tractor) than garden tractor. If you are wanting one to use fairly heavy,I would pass on it.
