I love reading the history behind the garden tractors we all love. I would like to add a Shaw and a Speedex to the collection in the near future. Once we move we will have a little more room and it may become reality.

I just inherited a Shaw Du All R6 from my Grandfather old garage. It has been sitting for the last 20yrs since he passed. All I know is that he bought it before my parents were married ('60) and the Wisconsin motor blew and a 9hp Briggs was installed. The tractor has a B&S Model 233431 type 0020-01 Code 691218 9HP on it now and a Simplicity mower deck. DSCF9771.JPG
Here is a few pictures. I need help with the year! This should make an interesting project.

Drema, all I can tell you is when the "R" series began production. This was 1945.

Hi Drema12, Glad to see another Shaw guy here. According to info I have, the R6 was first introduced in 1948 and used a Briggs model ZZ engine. In 1950 the ZZ was replaced with a Briggs model 23, the R6 designation was dropped and replaced with an R8. In the early days the number reflected the horsepower but for some reason in 58 the R8 was again replaced by the R6 but was powered by a 9HP Wisconsin. These models remained through 62 when the company sold out to Bush Hog. Since your tractor was originally equipped with the Wisconsin, I'd say the time frame would be 58-62. Do you still have the original engine and hood?

Sadly my Uncle scrapped the original engine during a cleanup many years ago, I'd say the hood went then also. I was born in '63 and rode with Gramps on that tractor growing up and I never remember the hood ever being there. He bought it from a dealer in Columbus Ohio.

Columbus was a major distribution center for Shaw. They even list Columbus on some of the literature. The national Shaw registry reunion is going to be in Richwood OH July 27-29 this year. (2012) Maybe you can bring it to the show.
