Default 1990's MTD Lawn Tractor 18hp $300

I'm moving to a new house with a much smaller yard. I couldn't turn this around in it. I picked it up 3 yrs ago, barely running.

18hp B&S opposed twin
46" tri blade deck (high Lift blades)
Rear double bagger attachment (works awesone)
Front 42" plow, wheel weights, homemade tire chains. (only bothered using one year)
6 speed vari-drive (belts and variable pulley)

runs great, no oil use.
throttle cable needs some adjustment. it does not lower very much. a zip tie and a phillips screwdriver would fix it.
one deck tension spring was lost, all I had was another shorter spring, so it is ghetto rigged. The spring is like 6 bucks, but my crappy fix works and i'm cheap.
could use wheel bushings up front, but still cuts fine. also a very cheap part (plastic)

I would not suggest this is a garden tractor, it would not plow your garden without really working hard, does snow fine, cuts grass great.

MTD metal body, repainted in osha safety yellow and black 2 yrs ago, rear was rusty and I ground it all out.

NEW in last 2 yrs.
Deck spindle bearings and 1 idler pulley
All Drive belts (origional MTD)
Deck Belt
Rear axle bearings/bushings, repacked diff too.
Alternator diode
starter last year
Battery
plugs






Located in Hazel Park, can deliver although prefer not as I am very busy at the moment ($)

pm returned.

also I have it listed as 1990's because The serial is gone (common, its a sticker) I believe it to be a 91-95 based on parts cross reference, but I can't be certain of the exact year.
