Freight Orders

Freight deliveries require a delivery time be scheduled and someone must be present at the time of delivery to inspect and sign for the merchandise. A representative from the freight carrier will call the phone number entered at checkout to schedule the delivery.

Liftgate Service

For freight deliveries, you have the option of adding a liftgate to your delivery. A liftgate is the device that lowers a product from the truck to ground level.

CPO recommends adding liftgate service for freight deliveries exceeding 100 lbs if you do not have a loading dock or fork lift at the delivery address. Additional charges may apply. The liftgate option will be presented during the checkout process.

Please note that liftgate service only ensures the product is removed from the truck. We recommend you have the additional help of two to four people to move the product to its desired location because drivers are not required to assist.

Requesting liftgate service after ordering may result in additional charges and delays.

Want to return it.
I have always owned MTD products. This was my first with a Kohler engine. Bought direct from MTD. This engine is bottom of the line and when you shut it off it clanks. Local Kohler repair shop says it is the nature of the beast. I would suggest skipping this unit for one with a different engine. It is not returnable once I put gas in it. Do again avoid Kohler Courage.

2nd full season with this Tractor, and I love it.
This MTD Tractor has served me very well since I bought it in the Fall of 2014. I my opinion the strongest thing about this Tractor is the 20HP Kohler Engine, It provides plenty of power. The only negative I have is that this Kohler engine is a little loud. Maybe a better muffler would lower the decibel level.

Would like to see MTD go to LED lighting and make them bright enough for after dark work.

Does the 42" 20HP MTD Gold can you put a snowblower on it?
jim on Sep 26, 2012
BEST ANSWER: While you cannot fasten an actual Snow Blower to this mower, you can purchase mower attachments such as Plow Blades and Snow Thrower Attachment.

These are alot on the market and are made by Husqvarna, MTD, Snapper, Toro, etc.

Many people do this for their Riding Mowers and Lawn Tractors.
