Got a new mower from my neighbor last weekend! It's a Lowe's brand mower. 18HP Opposed twin and a Hi/Low Transmission with 14 speeds! The axles are 1 inch on this monster! This is gonna be one tough off-road mower soon to come!

Will get pics tonight!

Thats not that bad, my current project has been sitting for 4+ years in the rain with no hood or flywheel shroud....

If your planning on prepping the tranny make sure you take some pics, i'd love to see how the hi/low range works.

H-L-N-R and then some more speeds?

Sounds like it may be a vari-drive setup.

It is.   That's an MTD 800 series Garden Tractor.  twocents2

MOW that axle may be frozen too, I've never seen an MTD without a floating front axle.





*edit*   Fixed  bigsmile
