An auction coming up this Sunday that has a White 1855 listed.  The auction bill says " White GT 1855 LT".  So is this a lawn tractor or a Garden Tractor ? ?  Not that familiar with the White MTD line.  Thanks much for the education.

That is what I thought but wanted to be sure.  I picked up a 1655 non-runner last week.  Listing don't say anything about this one except the model, engine and has a 50" deck.  Hoping it is a DOA and I can get it reasonable.  3 other mowing outfits and the mowing season is closing down so not a lot of interest - I hope ! ! !   Thanks much.

Just looking at a 1655 at portland show, see my posts there in MTD forum on it. Is a twin Briggs in it, doesn't seem too heavy, more like a LT to me. He wants $175 and says it starts and runs fine! I would LIKE It, but don't NEED it...keep saying that ....keep saying that!

A White GT1655 is based on the same chassis as the 1855 and the later MTD 2055, same tractor different size engines

If it says LGT, that is a smaller frame tractor.

A picture would tell all. Good luck.
