Default Huskee LT 42

I bought a Z445 last year and need a smaller tractor for the area right around the house

I was looking at TSC they have an LT 42 with a 420 CC Powermore engine

Does anyone have any info on these they look like a Honda clone

I cant find a website for them and they are not listed on MTD site either

Any help appreciated!

This is what I found on a Canadian web site. It only mentions two engines, but they do offer to answer your questions a bit further down the page. They don't quote the size, but from the way they describe the lawn mower engine, and the way it looks, the claimed features are much the same as Honda's GXV140 engine.
PowerMore™ Lawn & Garden Engine

From a little more looking around, other folks say that Zongshen builds the PowerMore engines.

Is this 420cc the engine you were seeing?

I don't know that there is such a thing, or at least not that I've been able to find. I searched for the Huskee LT 42 and this came up on the TSC site.

HuskeeŽ 42 in. 420cc LT 42 Lawn Tractor - 4452673 | Tractor Supply Company

From that I took the manufactures number 13WV771S031 and put it in the search block for model# on the MTD parts web site.

Lawn Mower Parts - Genuine MTD Parts for Outdoor Power Equipment, Troy-Bilt Mowers & More

and came up with the parts breakdown for the mower.

Outdoor Power Equipment Parts: Use the Part Finder Tool from MTD

Except it shows a Kohler Courage engine, not a PowerMore. The parts break down says 2011, so maybe that's the difference.

For the most part, most entry level riders share the same respects in terms of quality in my opinion, but the JD may feel a little more refined overall vs. the Huskee. The JD is more, but you do get a better parts/dealer/support network and a decent warranty. Yeah, when it comes to engine brand, I would definitely go with a name brand.
