MTD`s current (1997 and later) model and serial numbers are generally 11 characters in length. A character could be a number, dash or a letter. If 0 represented all numbers and/or dashes and X represented all letters, the model and serial numbers should appear as follows: 00XX000X000.
The Model number is eleven characters long and is printed on the left side of the Product Identification Label. Characters can include numbers, letters or hyphens.
Yard Machines®

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 MTD model number can be found on your equipment`s identification tag, located in one of several places on your machine. This tag is approximately 2“ x3“ in size and also includes the product name, customer service address, and phone number. Enter the model number of your MTD below to search for parts.
What is MTD? MTD stands for “month to date.” It`s the period starting from the beginning of the current month up until now … but not including today`s date, because it might not be complete yet.
Powermore® engines are a premium small block engine with advantages that in many cases are better than competitive engine models.
In February, John Deere celebrated building their 5,000,000th lawn tractor in the Greeneville, Tennessee plant. They build the models you find in the big box stores – not MTD. Most of the transmissions are made by TuffTorque, about 30 miles away in Morristown, Tennessee, and most of the engines are B&S.
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).
Model number means a combination of letters, digits, or characters representing the manufacturer, brand, design, or performance of an appliance.
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.
To Determine Manufacture Date Based on Serial Number: The 1st three numbers of your serial number will always provide your manufacture date. The 1st number is the YEAR of manufacture; the 2nd & 3rd numbers indicate the MONTH of manufacture. Please see the detailed explanation and examples provided below.
