Hi, my name is Chuck and I new to your forum, stumbled across looking for info on a Huski walk behind . I acquired a Huski GT a few years ago and was looking for information about these. I just dug it out of the barn to see if I can get it running it has a set of cultivators with it. Any information would certainly be appreciated. It has a Brigs and Stratton NPP6 engine with serial # 612987 and a model or series # 507006 are parts still available?  The serial # on the Huski is H10394 any info on this machine sure will helpful. thanks for your help

Hello , Welcome to GTT :wave:

 

Pictures will be a big help in determining what you have exactly. The early Bolens did not always have model numbers with them.

Welcome to the forum. The engine was built in April of 47. I'd put the tractor at 47 or 8 if the engine is original.

Welcome to the GTTalk forums.

 

Is the engine maybe an NPR6 rather than an NPP6? The Bolens walk behinds from that era used a gear reducer mounted to the crank output of the engine, hence the "R6" part, which stands for a 6:1 gear reduction. If it is an NPR6, the tractor may be a model 12A, made from 1942-48.

Look for an model # ID tag down where the handlebars attach to the main frame. It does look like someone has modified the front of the main frame.

What you have there is a model 12A. I'd say its a 47 but a couple more pics of it would help.
There are some parts still available for these engines, not everything but the common replaceable things like points, condenser and carb kits. You can find NOS Briggs parts for these.
Anymore questions just ask away, someone on here will help you out.
