Sales Tax Policy:

If no sales tax is charged, you are still responsible for paying the sales tax to your state where required. The purchase is not tax-exempt because it is made over the Internet or because the seller is not required to collect sales tax. The states of Colorado, Connecticut, Kentucky, Louisiana, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Vermont, and Washington require purchases in those states to review untaxed purchases and, if any tax is owed, file their respective State sales or use tax return and pay any tax due. Purchasers in other states not listed may also have the same tax requirements and should check their respective state's tax website for additional information or seek advice from a tax or legal professional.

Return Policy:

When returning a part, please follow these steps:

  • Prior to the return of new, unused parts, please review the instructions included on your packing slip.
  • Be sure to send incorrect parts back promptly. We cannot accept returns for used parts* OR parts received 90 days past your initial return inquiry. A restocking fee of 25% will be charged for parts received 90 days after your initial return inquiry.
  • Your refund will be credited to the original credit card used for your purchase within 7-10 business days of receipt of returned merchandise at our warehouse.

Abuse of Return Policy:

MTD Genuine Parts reserves the right to refuse to sell to any person for any reason not prohibited by law, including, but not limited to, abuse of its return policy.

*All returns are subject to inspection by MTD Genuine Parts personnel as to identify possible use, misuse, missing components, damage or abuse. Refunds may be denied as a result of failure to pass a return inspection.

Cancellation Policy:

Should you choose to cancel your order, please be advised that order processing begins immediately upon placement, therefore, there is a limited amount of time during which an order can be cancelled prior to shipment. Once our warehouse prints your order, it cannot be cancelled.

Backordered items can be cancelled at any time prior to being received into inventory.

In order to process your return, please provide the following information:

  • A copy of your order confirmation
  • Your order number
  • Your bill-to details
  • The phone number provided when placing your order

Equipment Returns:

New, unused equipment may be returned for a period of up to 14 days after the delivery date. Return shipping charges are the responsibility of the customer. Customers wishing to return new, unused equipment must call 1-800-269-6215 within 14 days of delivery of the product to obtain a return authorization and instructions. Once fuel is put in the fuel system, it is considered "used", and is therefore non-returnable. Units that perform as designed are non-returnable, as they are now considered "used"*.

For questions regarding equipment set-up, operation, or maintenance, please call our technical support team at 1-800-828-5500.

It is extremely important that all new, unused equipment being returned receive a return authorization prior to being returned. Equipment returned without a return authorization prior to shipment may be rejected for refund consideration and may also be subject to a storage fee of $20 per day. Total storage charges will not exceed the original total purchase amount. If an item is returned and becomes subject to storage fees, it will be considered "abandoned". Abandoned items will become the sole property of MTD Genuine Parts as soon as the storage fees meet or exceed the original total purchase amount. When the remaining credit eligible balance reaches zero, abandoned items may be resold or disposed of at the sole discretion of MTD Genuine Parts.

What is LTL (Less than Truckload) Delivery?

LTL deliveries are used for orders that exceed the weight and/or dimension restrictions of standard delivery methods. Typical delivery time for LTL shipping is 5 to 7 business days (excluding weekends and holidays). Once your order has been processed and shipped, you receive a phone call from the freight company at least 24 hours prior to delivery. It is important that you provide your daytime phone number when placing your order. If you are not sure that you provided your phone number, please contact us.

Please note the following regarding LTL deliveries.

  • Many truck freight companies do not require their drivers to unload shipments. We suggest that you make arrangements to have extra help on hand to assist with unloading your product.
  • Ramps and/or unloading equipment may be necessary to have on-hand.
  • If the shipping company needs to make special arrangements to unload merchandise, such as lift-gate truck delivery or extra delivery personnel, it will be the responsibility of the customer to reimburse the trucking company unless otherwise noted.
  • Some municipalities prohibit truck freight delivery in residential areas. As a result, customers may need to arrange pick-up at the local trucking company's distribution center.
  • Please inspect the product carefully and thoroughly before signing the shipping receipt. Shipping damage is covered by the LTL freight company.
  • Your signature on the receipt is your acceptance of the merchandise. The customer must arrange all returns or exchanges of LTL freight shipments with a local carrier.
