Yardman lawn tractors are another brand offered by the MTD company. MTD specializes in entry level machines, and the Yardman is no exception. Sold through Walmart stores, this brand offers both convenience of purchase, and low cost. Up to three different models are offered - two come equipped with manual transmissions that can be shifted while the tractor is moving. The third model is equipped with a hydrostatic transmission. Since keeping costs low was a major consideration in the design of these tractors, few attachments or options are available.
All the models feature side discharge decksallowing for side discharge of the grass clippings. The deck cutting height is adjusted manually using a lever.
The front axles on all Yardmaan tractors is fabricated of steel. This is not as good as a cast iron front axle which is found on more expensive brands, but is reasonably durable, nonetheless..
The deck design feature the ‘step through’ design. This eliminates any obstructions in front of the drivers seat. This allows for easy entry and exit from the tractor without the need to lift feet and legs over a raised portion of the frame.
Yardman lawn tractors are available in 3 model series - 13A0772G055,13A0771H055, and the 13AX15G055. There are slight variations in engine size and cutting width between the models, but the differences are not great. Let’s start with model 13A0772G055 . This machine is equipped with a single cylinder 19 HP single cylinder engine, which powers a 42 inch twin blade cutting deck. There is no oil filter on this engine. The transmission is a 7 speed manual that can be shifted as the tractor is moving.
Model 13A0771H055 is nearly identical, but is fitted with a triple blade 46” cutting deck. The engine is also a Briggs and Stratton, but is rated at 19.5HP. There is no oil filter on this engine.
Top of the line is the model 13AX15G055 , which has a Kohler Courage single cylinder overhead valve ( OHV) four cycle engine. The transmission is upgraded also, to a hydrostatic with foot control for the speed.
All models come with a manual PTO to engage the cutting blades. An electric PTO option is not offered as an option.
Yardman tractors provide a good product for a low price. This brand is geared to the customer with a tight budget that needs to do basic mowing around the home.
