the mtd double pulley system is terrible if you get an mtd either replace the tranns, have only forward neutral and revers or just dont get an mtd

it has its advantages and disadvantages - it gives a variety of speeds , but can easily rust up - when i made a mild mod out of a MTD - i had some belt allignment issues ( turned out to be with the trans pulley).

Sometimes they can be a pain to adjust - sometimes the belts are a pain to get the right length ( due to being a 5/8" wider belt) .

ive never had an MTD in the mud- not sure how itd perform - i know the stock tires are terrible in mud, so those would need to be changed.


Its worth running till you can locate a manual trans.

My mtd has the double pulley system. It does 24 mph and pulls whatever i want to pull. It never slips even under water. Just get tighter belts thats what i did on mine. The only problem is that it creeps a little when its in park. I like the double pulley system because i can just put it in 6th and the further i let the clutch ou the faster i go! Very Happy

More speed can be gained from adjusting the speed control linkage - its possible to adjust the neutral position of the variable pulley ( dont have my MTD manual here) - my 91mastercut was 'tweeked ' by a former owner - wouldnt stop and ran almost too fast to mow safely.

I looked at adjusting the neutral - i readjusted it and it stopped like normal - the speed is still there , havent gotten around to adjusting that part yet.
