I have only been at this for a summer so far, and my first tractor, a 78-80 lawnflite 8/34, I can't seem to find
Any info on anywhere. So I'm wondering if you guys have knowledge on these tractors, any aid will be appericated

Welcome to GTT. Pics would help to identify your tractor. I suspect that it may be an MTD built tractor. Check our Manuals Section for what we have. Good Luck, Rick

Here are four basic pics of the build.
First two are beginning third is after first paint, fourth is after final paint, currently being torn apart as a winter restoration project
And it is built by MTD

Welcome to the forum.

 

I did a search here in the MTD forum but did not find much. Over in MTF there is more to read about your Lawnflite.

Type in Lawnflite or Lawn Flite in the search bos at the top of the forums.

Looked it up, these tractors must be rare as the only one I seen was a 7 horse with a different frame

Might just be undocumented!

True, but I believe someone has to know something on this.

We have a little MTD lawn tractor here. Can't find anything about it. But it's a 'lawn tractor'.
