My dad bought his Troybilt 6hp Horse model new in 1976. My mom was cleaning out an old file cabinet in the back corner of the basement, I never knew all these existed, like a goldmine tonight and all are in near perfect condition. I didn't even take pics of all the little pamphlets.

Any chance you can scan everything and add it to the Manuals forum?

I can possibly attempt it.

The first picture -"owners' manual"   is 176 pages by itself  :dancingbanana:

This was also in there, beekeeping for beginners. Copyright 1949, last reprint 1962.
It also had a 4 page paper in it with order form on raising and ordering Ginseng seeds. It had writing on it for dates of planting, fall of 1973. Order form was torn off, guess my dad was going to plant some.

Take a look at the manuals section.  That one may already be there.  Maybe you could start with paper work that is not already on the forum manual section.  Troy-Bilt made sure the owner had all the info he needed to care for their products.

Yea, I can probably give those a shot, most are like 6-8 page pamphlets. I never even knew my father had these. I remember he has some other troybilt books, but not these.

 

Mom also found the AKC pedigrees of the two standard poodles she had back in the 70's, she saved everything. Tax papers from the 70's too.
