I have been looking for an MTD 990 for a while when I found this Yard Man. It was listed on CL for some time and upon seeing the colors I automatically ignored it. Well, today I took a closer look and found what appears to be a White dressed in green and yellow. I know absolutely nothing about these machines but given the features decided to bring it home. Any info on these would certainly be appreciated.

 

Regards,

That looks to be a 995.
The lights on the rear fenders say "White" to me.
I think there may have been something else MTD did just for White
Do you think it may have been made for white, then, repainted and sold as a Yardman?

I had the right side cover off for those pics to see what oil filter it used. Here is what it looks like with the side cover on. The louvers sure look like a White but I can't find a 22 hp model with the Kohler CH22S engine listed anywhere.

I have a White and it is a 18hp briggs.  Also the White had a different grill that said white as well as White labeled decals on the side of the hood.  I think MTD made this for Yardman.

It's a model 999 made from '95 to '98 per the available manuals on MTD's website. It was the last in the 990 tractor family. I don't believe they had a White version with that engine, only a 20hp (model 992, '95-'99.) Yardman was just an MTD brand after, I think, '74 or '75.

Looks pretty stout, maybe a few rattle cans if you don't like the paint scheme.

Thank You! I couldn't find a model with the Kohler engine but everything else looks correct.

I'm thinking of replacing the yellow with olive drab for a two-tone green..... :D

Almost Deere colors, better keep, worth more when selling later, ha!  Sure looks like White I had, but don't recall what engine. Think was a V-twin, but might have been Briggs?  I had carb trouble and never did get it to run right. Was nice heavy tractor on all the other areas.  Far as Yardman stuff, think MTD is still making many items with that name still. I see them for sale in push mowers and tillers and other items in stores.

The 22hp Command is correct for a 999. The manuals for those and all the MTD tractors are available for free on MTD's website.

Sadly, the model and serial numbers no longer reside on the tractor due to the seat being replaced. That makes it impossible to find the correct manual on the MTD site.

 

 

Update: Found a picture of a model number and serial. The model is a 145-999-501

I have a Dayton 3Z678 that's very similar other than it uses the 18hp B&S flat twin horizontal.  Some of the MTD995-based tractors had problems with the steering gears.  The sector and pinion had very fine teeth and they'd tend to skip after a while.  My first Dayton had that problem and I could never get rid of it.

 

I just bought another Dayton 3Z678, and the steering seems to work okay so maybe the fixed the problem.

For future reference, to find a manual on their site, you don't need the full model number and you can use any number for the serial. In the model number you posted, "14" represents the product line, garden tractor in this case, and "5" is a model year, 1995 in this case. There are manuals available for 145999, 146999, 147999, and 148999. If you don't know what model year your tractor is, the numbers on the engine will tell you what year it was built. You can figure the tractor model year from that.

Took a couple of size comparison pics yesterday while I had the Wheel Horse C-101 out for mowing duty.

 

Later changed the hydro oil and filter. Draining the transaxle wasn't bad but filling it was a chore. Forget using a funnel, the tube is too small and burps the fluid right back out. Had to resort to siphoning it in through a piece of 3/8 vinyl tubing. Took over an hour to put 6 quarts in.
