My Mst was ok, you could tell it was way lighter than an 820 though. Only really suitable for light builds like murrays. Was a lot quieter than the 820, but then again it didnt have almost rice paddy tires on it lol!

MST's always looked really wimpy to me, not a lot of casting really. Seem to work okay for some people though, haha.

Also seems to work...notso well for some people. Hahaha. I'm sure I would've murdered mine if I actually would have used it lol.

I haven’t had an issue with my MST, though I never really put it through TOO much abuse

I haven't PURPOSELY abused my mst, but I ran it for a few months, (and I drive my tractors every day) without any front supports. With the mud lites, it violently threw the front of the trans up and into the frame, bending the rear mounts. (Yikes)
Funny thing is it's fine. Also, in that time, I was forced to shift without the clutch or the belt would fall off. So yeah they are pretty stout hahaha!

I would never run a trans without front mounts. That's a really dumb decision. Just asking to rip the transaxle in half.

Especially with aggressive tires on the rear, haha. I had the forward mount bolts come loose in my 600 under the MTD when I first swapped it in, and it would jerk upwards when I let the clutch out. I put lock washers on them cuz I definitely didn't want that to happen again.

Ok here's a around month update.

Engine is mounted, small rack was made but needs some improvement, may or may not keep the deck harware. Steering needs some work cause the gears slip if turned hard.
