OK, here is a yard machine, circa 2000 AD, with a Tec 15.5 OHV

Finally... Someone brave enough to admit they have an MTD!

Actually, they're a pretty good machine for the money. Id rather spend $899 on an MTD than $1999 on an "L", as you get far more bang for the buck....

If dougand3 likes it, that's all that counts!

Nope, didn't mean to imply that. I think the MTD's are good machines. I also think the Murray's are nice machines too. The "Oh Brother" was for the L comment.

This topic gets old as to which is built better than which. I'm not saying that an MTD is better than an L or that the L is better than an MTD... it is hard to prove those because people tend to slide in opinion's with *some* facts. Others confuse other peoples opinions with facts and then the facts can be just plain ole BS. People's opinions are important, but when you weigh in with an opinion, it helps to be followed up by some facts that back your opinion.

I'm sure that each has it's list of pro's and con's. I just get tired of the bashfest threads in general.

There was NO BASH in this post....

I have certainly bashed the "L" in other posts, on the "other" forums, but I don't think I've bashed anything here.... It would be hard to argue that a tractor costing half as much (but still does the same job) doesn't give more bang for the buck.

That same comparison would be true for a MTD vs Simplicity matchup too, except for one thing. The MTD would, presumably, not last as long.... Simplicity's are Notorious for lasting 20, 30, 40 years

Regardless of ones feelings on the "L", I doubt it will have that much longevity.

I bought this MTD for $150. The owner was moving and the movers wanted too much to move it and HE WANTED IT GONE! So I gone to the ATM, got my truck and the MTD got gone to my house. I know it may be blaspemous but I wasn't thinking of engineering specs when he said $150. Doug

Nice deal.

I don't understand why the Murray owners, MTD owners and several others are afraid to admit owning one. Well... actually I do, they tend to get bashed. My Dad has an MTD, I had a Murray and they do a good job.
