A 42 inch MTD Gold lawn tractor
7.4 hours on this machine and have already added oil 3 times. No leak that I can see.
Other then that it runs very well, quiet,smooth as can be. But the oil problem is my concern.
Martin, from Lawn Tractor Buyers Guide, adds:
That sounds a bit of worry Wally. I’ve done some searching and haven’t found any evidence of similar problems with the MTD Gold.
I guess you’ve checked the oil filter and anywhere else obvious that might have a leak.
If it’s still under warranty it’s probably worth having it checked by an MTD dealer.
If anybody else has had a similar problem, please let us know in the comments below.
