Since 1958 when the first lawn mower rolled off the line, MTD has been designing easy-to-use outdoor power equipment and building a reputation for quality and dependability second to none. Yard Machines® provides the equipment you need to get yard work done.

The 42-inch Yard Machines Riding Mower makes it easy for you to get yard work done. This hardworking machine features a Briggs & Stratton 17.5HP engine as well as a seven-speed shift-on-the-go transmission to give you the power to drive the riding mower up small hills and ridges.

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).
On a reel mower, the blades spin vertically. This is different from most mowers you may be familiar with where the blade spins horizontally, called rotary mowers. Traditionally, reel mowers are mechanically powered, which means you need to use muscle to push them to cut grass.
Manual or push reel mowers don`t have engines, so they don`t use gas and emit no pollutants. The lack of an engine also means reel mowers are virtually noiseless. No engine also means no tune-ups, and less maintenance: no oil to check, no filter to clean, no spark plugs, saving time and money.
Along with Cub Cadet, Troy-Bilt, Columbia and Remington, the MTD family of brands includes MTD®, MTD Gold®, MTD Pro®, Yard-Man®, Yard Machines® and Bolens®.

Identification tags are located in areas unlikely to need replacement – even after years of use. For most of our power equipment, these tags are approximately 2″ x 3″ in size. They also have the MTD product`s name, address and customer service phone number listed across the bottom.
SAE 10W-30 is best for varying temperature ranges and is best for starting in cold climates. The trade off here is the potential for higher oil consumption. Synthetic oil is also an option for your riding lawn mower. SAE 5W-30 is a great all-around alternative to conventional oil.

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.

ANSWER : All of the blades I encounter (daily) have a standard 9/16″ bolt with a standard thread, meaning when facing the bottom of the mower, clockwise to tighten and CCW to loosen.
