Please read our Store's "Terms" before being scared off by the Shipping Wizard's freight costs, and use the "Ask Seller a Question" link, if necessary. And please make sure the eCrater Home Page Heading displays the Stars-&-Stripes with the "U.S." notation in the upper-right corner so prices will be displayed in U.S. Dollars, not Australian Dollars or British Pounds.
Offering this new-replacement upgraded "Made-in-the-USA" MST 206-578 transaxle with full factory warranty at a 10% discount off MSRP! This transaxle is factory-lubricated, ready to bolt-in and run. This transaxle is made for the Export market and is used on European Husqvarna Model CT153 ride-on mowers, among others.
This upgraded, in-line-shift, gear-drive, new-in-box 6-Forward-speed (+ Neutral and Reverse) Model MST 206-578 Peerless replacement transaxle has a 5/8"-diameter x 1-3/16" tall input shaft with keyway and snap-ring groove, 3/4"-diameter axle shafts with keyways and snap-ring grooves on the ends, and the short, square-end shift shaft as shown. The overall end-to-end axle length is approximately 29" (74 cm) ; the axle ends extend out from the case approximately 4-11/16" (12 cm) on each side. The case has two sets of industry-standard mounting holes -- the close-together holes are on 13" side-to-side centers x 1-3/4" front-to-back centers; the far-apart mount holes are on 16-1/4" x 2-1/2" centers.
For an additional $60.00, this transaxle can be upgraded with the heavy-duty needle-bearing option installed on the ends of the axle shafts, inside the housing. These reduce the friction of the axle running inside the normal case bushings compared to a standard MST 206-578, allowing for better longevity and durability. This upgrade is done by a Tecumseh-Peerless Master Technician at an Authorized Tecumseh-Peerless Service Center, and reassembly is blueprinted at the same time.
Being new, this transaxle is covered by the Peerless 2-year Consumer Use/90-day Commercial Use/30-day Rental Use Limited Warranty within the USA and the 1-year Consumer/90-day Commercial/30-day Rental Limited Warranty outside the USA. A dated receipt will be provided to validate the warranty, dated to reflect its arrival at your place so you won't lose warranty coverage for travel time. Note that the warranty covers defects in material and workmanship -- it is not a blanket guarantee against abuse and mistreatment. A copy of the Peerless Warranty will also be included with the transaxle.
The Part Number for a standard 206-578 is 794886. Current MSRP on this transaxle is $382.00 FOB Indiana, USA; my price makes this new standard transaxle available to you for just 90% of retail!
MOUNTING NOTE: The holes on the lower-front corners of the transaxle are not threaded, since the mower manufacturer uses 5/16"-18 self-threading bolts to hold the front support(s) to these corners. If you are re-using your original bolts or equivalent OEM bolts, make sure they have clean threads when re-installing these supports. If you do not have the original-style bolts and are using standard machine-thread bolts for these front-corner supports, you will need to carefully tap these holes to match the threads of your bolts. WARNING: If you plan on pre-tapping these holes, the case material is only about 0.060" (1/16") thick at the back of these holes, so measure the hole depth and set your tap accordingly, or you will break through the case into the gear-lube area.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE THIS TRANSAXLE AS-IS ON A REAR-ENGINE RIDER (where the transaxle is mounted with the input pulley, brake and shift arm BEHIND the axle) or you will have 1 forward speed and 6 reverse speeds.
QUESTIONS? Please -- before you ask a "Will-it-fit?" question -- compare the measurements of your transaxle to the dimensions I have listed above for this transaxle, and note the Model and Serial Numbers off your current transaxle. Yes, that may require safely jacking up your mower, removing a wheel, then crawling under the mower with a scale, tape measure, flashlight and notepad, as well as a rag to carefully clean off dirt and grease. In your "Question," also include the Model and Serial Number off the mower. Thanks!

FEEDBACK: Our Feedback is 100%, which is good. The latest Feedback, however, is in December of 2011, which may raise questions. The reason for this is because we had to drop PayPal as an Approved Payment Method in our Store due to eCrater’s restrictions, and the only way Feedback can be left is if we show PayPal as an Approved Payment Method and the Buyer pays with PayPal through the eCrater Checkout. For this reason, there are no Feedbacks since December of 2011, even though we’ve had hundreds of satisfied customers since then. If you would like to get a referral from a recent customer near you, please let us know. We have nothing to hide, and your satisfaction is our priority.
