Riding mower model and serial number plate is located on the underside of the seat.
What year was my equipment built? The 5th character of our 11 character product serial numbers will indicate the last number of the year that it was manufactured. Since 5th character in the example is a 4, the year of manufacture would be a year ending in 4.
Finding your model number and serial number is as easy as locating the identification tag on your machine. As seen in the example, the model number will be displayed below the MODEL heading (Example: Z235), and the serial number will be underlined on the top-right corner of the tag (Example: 130002).

Can I replace the blades on my 38in MTD/Yard Machine ride on without removing the deck? ie. from underneath.
ANSWER : If its in good condition you might be able to but be careful so mower doesn’t fall on you. I’ve used my car ramps and backed the mower up the ramp and was able to do it safely. If you have any difficulty removing the blades, then I’d take the deck off. It really isn’t that hard to remove the deck.
