    MTD/Murray Front Wheel Lubing

    Earlier this year I decided to do the front wheels, and its a good thing I did, because they had very little grease in them. Apparently they did not grease the axle before installing the wheel, just hitting the grease fitting with the grease gun later. The problem is, the grease fittings were...

    Battery Removal MTD 30" Riding Mower

    The rear-engine MTD 30" riding mower like this Cub Cadet and many others; Murray, Craftsman, Troy-Bilt, etc. with the plastic coated steel wire battery restraint/support.

    Murray 30" Rear Engine

    Just want to see what your ideas are on this; after three years of very occasional/light use, the last two times I went to use it, the battery was apparently dead - no crank.

    MTD (Murray) 30" Rear Engine - Stubborn Blade Nut

    Hey y'all, a newbie to this forum but not mowers. I was cleaning up/lubing my mower after its second season (light use) and planned on taking off the blade and sharpening/balancing like I do with my smaller mowers. I got out my breaker bar and a heavy-duty 15/16" socket, braced the blade and...
