MTD riding lawn mowers are a smart choice for homeowners who have large areas to mow, such as an acre or more. The mowers are equipped with light duty, easily serviced engines (Briggs & Stratton and Kohler), giving the user years of performance at an affordable price. In recent years, MTD has purchased four other outdoor equipment companies, expanding its product base to include garden tractors capable of converting to snow blowers. Most models of MTD mowers can be purchased at big box stores.
