The model and serial numbers are essential to find correct MTD® genuine factory replacement part numbers for your outdoor power equipment. 

MTD's current (1997 and later) model and serial numbers are generally 11 characters in length. A character could be a number, dash or a letter. If 0 represented all numbers and/or dashes and X represented all letters, the model and serial numbers should appear as follows: 00XX000X000.
These are made of both letters and numbers, and typically look like this: 11AA111A111.

Identification tags are located in areas unlikely to need replacement - even after years of use. For most of our power equipment, these tags are approximately 2" x 3" in size. They also have the MTD product's name, address and customer service phone number listed across the bottom.
