    Powr kraft???

    hows it going guys! well my question is.. i was given a riding mower. i dont know much about it and i cant seem to find anything really about it online other then a few pics.. i mean like 3 or 4 and not one video of it at all. all i know is its called Powr Kraft. when i got it all it needed was the starter rebuild. the thing runs awesome. i even put a plow on it for the winter. didnt even have to use chains or anything. it moved the snow just fine.It has a twin 18hp b&s motor and a hydro rear end. then hydro sounds like never been used. dosnt scream or anything.So what im trying to find out is.. what the hell is it lol. is the parts going to be hard to get? and whats it really worth as is?

    Well that would have made it to easy. I do believe that it is made by Montgomery ward. But did see a few people say MTD made it but I don't think So. I do know of two guys on here that know a lot about who makes what brand

    This mower was made by MTD for K-Mart. Power Kraft was the house brand for K-Mart. I have the exact same model

    Actually, Powr Kraft was Montgomery Ward's brand name - Here's a Self-Propelled 122-304A Self-PRopelled walk-behind on MyTractorForum that I found the manuals for.

    Looking for info on 1982 Montgomery Ward Powr Kraft 20" Self-Propelled... - MyTractorForum.com - The Friendliest Tractor Forum and Best Place for Tractor Information

    He said it DOESN'T scream or anything. So he's not having a problem, just wanted information regarding who made it and where it was sold. For some reason, as soon as I saw the name I though Montgomery Ward.

    Yup, I even have a bunch of MW's tools, which were also Powr Kraft, and carried the same guarantee that Craftsman had, though were generally cheaper. Needless to say, I never had to return anything.
