Scotts riding mower
I have recently acquired a used Scotts 15 hp, 42" cutting deck, riding mower. Model no. 42531X7. It is at least 10 years old and was purchased to replace my 20 year old Montgomery Ward mower of unknown mfg. ( MTD ? ). The Scotts is generally better constructed and in much better shape than the old mower. My mechanic neighbor, who has more experience with mowers than I, believes the Scotts brand was manufactured by John Deere at one time, but I have been unable to find any information on the Web, can anyone shed some light on the history of this mower?
