Picked this up recently, and was wondering if anyone has seen one before.
Someone painted red over what looks to be original gold paint, and white decals.
The deck looks like it was originally white. Has a 6hp B&S. The tranny is different
from the one used on the Massey 24S. Other than motor and tranny, it looks
identical to a MF24s.

Were the 24s also made by the dura corp? How about the moto-boy were they also made by dura.I know the excecs and moto mowers have differences also.I have never seen any of those.

I don't know if the MF24s was made by Dura. It does have the same steering wheel as the
Execs, and the MotoMowers.

The tag on Moto-Boy says made in Ingersoll Can.
The tag on 24s says made in US.

I believe Dura had a plant in Ingersoll.

Will, As nice as that looks under the red, it might be worthwhile to try to take it back to original.

I was thinking the same thing Doug. Let's hear it for a crappy second paint job! It kinda makes you wonder why they painted it in the first place! Nice score Will! Is this going o be the next star in Massey Hall?

I belive what you have is a 24" deluxe rider model 306 type 100 moto mower? I have a copy of a owners manual for this model and your s looks to be very close. My manual does not show the name moto boy on the tractor. It has moto-mower in that spot. Moto mower did make a push mower by the name moto boy. They also had a Canadian plant. this manual i have is from 1964. The delux could be a step higher model. There is very slight differences in the front square. The delux is rounded and yoursis squared off onthe corners. This one could be a year or 2 newer?? I wonder if the Canadian model was called the Moto-boy and In America the Richmond Indiana plant called it Moto-Mower delux?
