The blade has a detent cam lobe,  and I reset the notched arch for the blade lever........I have since tweaked it a little by making the linkage all with flat stock and making the lever a little easier to pull.......It works good in snow.....but it is

I found another one people, a real bastardized middle-child too!

A square body in Cub Cadet form can you believe it!?

These are all the photos unfortunately, I'd love to see the grille! Best I can tell its a 1986 and has the F/N/R transmission so I think it's safe to assume it has the Vari-Drive also.

If it wasn't so far away from me and I didn't already have so many tractors I'd gladly pay the $200 he wants for it just for historical reasons! Lol

Yep, definitely a Vari-Drive, that lever on the right side is the speed control lever.

I spotted this on the side of road the other day (too far from home to be worthwhile), a Craftsman GT18, I'd like to build me one of these one day! MTD Square Body mowers, information and pictures - Page 2 20220801
