Wow, most machines over 5 years old aren't that straight. Nice find.

Hi Bob,

 

I just got one similar model - but in much rougher shape.

The model 6000 is early 1960s.

It should have a 6hp Briggs motor.

 

Are you looking for information on Moto-mower's or that model?

 

Please feel free to post the Briggs numbers and if the moto-mower's model and serial number are readable I'd be curious to see that too.  The Moto-mower serial number is on the dash under the hood - beside the steering wheel.

 

 

Btw., your post count is low - welcome to GTT.

 

 

Dwayne.

That's really interesting.  I didn't know they made the 6000 after 1963.

 

The 6008 looks like it has the same cast iron headlights as the 6024, but there are minor differences in the sheet metal.

 

 

It would be great if there were a serial number database - or at least a list of model numbers.

Those look like nice machines. Those prices seem low now but probably represented a large purchase at the time.
