Been working on this one for about a month or so, couldn't get it to run right, then I soaked the carb for a few days in a magic brew of paint thinner, sea foam & carb cleaner, it opened up and started to run right... I put tubes in the tires, new ignition, battery, valve cover gasket, and oil, now it seems to be running cutting ok.... It is too small for my yard, but i like the deck control lever it is pretty sweet.... gonna try and sell it for 350? something like that....

$350 seems fair.  Does it have just a 38" deck.  Does  that JD have the pto lever on the dash?  I thought I saw a PTO switch on the right fender but I could be mistaken.

Its a STX38, so 38 in deck with a hood from a 30. PTO & ignition on the fender. I see people asking good money for john deere stuff.

I done it again....


got a free bolens thing, the deck has a broken weld on a bracket but I think it is fixable. I drove it, has a 15hp, the MTD trans is stupid in my opinion since you have to put it in a fwd N or rev , clutch and then pick a gear, but whatever. Probably just fix the deck and sell or get a trailer for it and sell....

Yeah this looks like a good one to flip.  Did it come with the WD 40 can?   My ATC200 came with that in the trunk!

Yeah came with the WD and a free dog leash holding up the mowing deck. Still best free item I got was the mouse that was in my simplicity haha.

Seems like this model of MTD kind of sucks, its made real cheap, originally sold by lowes. Im considering keeping the engine but I need the cash.

Cool looking mower, I like the hood on it. Free is always best. Had one of those Intek single cyl. engines in for servicing recently, they seem quite good engines, even if they are a little more complicated that the older flatheads.
