MTD tractor identification
Posted September 30, 2016 - 04:06 PM
It runs good, but im trying to figure out what it is. The tag is unlegiable, but someone wrote in marker "148-960" under the seat.
I thought it was an 860, judging by the manual i found, but all the pics in the manual show a 10hp, mines 11, with a 4sp.
The engine info is as follows.
Thanks in advance

Someone else got one of those in the past week. My earlier 860 is 12 hp. Good Luck, Rick

I found how to read briggs engine codes, it is a 25 CI motor according to the code, meaning 11hp, which is what the hood says as well.
If it is a 148-960 from what i read that would date the tractor to 78, but the manual i found was for a "148-860A" which means the manual was from 88, the "A" designation meaning 80s. No "A" means 70s.
Its not a big deal, just like knowing is all
