I bought a lower-end riding mower that didn’t come with these anti-scalp wheels on the front. The wheels keep your deck and your blade from plowing into the ground — and trust me, I’ve done both. I ended up pulling the deck off, welding brackets to the deck, adding wheels, and then finding out that the deck wheels hit the front tires; version two fixed that issue. I wish I’d found these MTD bolt-on wheels a few weeks earlier.
The kit works on 38” and 42” decks. MTD makes Cub Cadet, Troy-Bilt, Yard-Man, White, Yard Machines, and Bolens lawn tractors, so I assume the kit will fit most of those mowers. Once you run through a couple of blades, the $70 price tag looks very reasonable for two wheels and all the mounting hardware.
