Hi Everyone, my name is 3509Cecil and I'm new to the forum. I bought at an auction a Springfield 25 Mower a few days ago. The serial # is 60R-25914. The mower is complete and I'm in the process of getting it running now. Does any one have a manual or any other info.on this mower ? Any help would be most appreciated   Thanks Cecil.

 

:wave:  Cecil, and welcome to the forums! 

 

I looked through the Springfield info I have, but can find no mention of a model 60R riding mower.  ....By any chance, could you have mis-read the "R" ?

 

Here's what I found for models from various years production:

 

1956 & 1957: Models 350-A & 357-A

1958: Models 358-A & 458-A

1959: Models 359-A, EC-59 & AMR-49

1960: Models 60-A, 60-B, 60-D, 60-DE, & 60-AMR 

1964: Models 64-D & 64-DE

 

1961-1964: Models 60-A-1, 61-AB, 62-A, 62-AB, 63-A & 64-A

1961-1966: Models 61-D, 61-DE, 62-D, 62-DE, 63-D, 63-DE, LT-6, LT-6-E, 66-LT-632, & 66-LT-632-E

 

Usually, the year of manufacturing was incorporated into the model number.  ...So, for example, a model 62-D would have been a 1962 model.

 

Can you post a pic of your Springfield?  .....How about engine numbers?

 

Is your rider green with white trim?

Bruce Dorsie, Thanks for getting back with me. Metal tag under seat is for sure says 60R-25914. The mower is mostly rusty but it was green & white trim. Got her running now and took a ride. runs pretty good. Have not engaged the mower deck yet.  Thanks again

Hello Bruce, I just bought a 56 57 Springfield mower up in Canada. I don't think they were ever sold up here. It is similar to the one you have pictured except my handle bars don't turn in. They are like the handle bars on a tricycle,. Someone put a Techuseh engine in it so I need a Clinton engine to restore it properly. The two front wheels don't match either but I'm not sure which one is correct for the mower. What I don't know about Springfields would fill volyums but I do know they are very "COOL" I need lots of help Don M.

I just regained possession of a family Springfield tractor, I drove as my very first lawn mower as a small child. It is an 1965 Springfield LT 425. I have everything except for rear fenders, and the period correct, white in color, Brigg's 4hp original engine.Anyone with any manuals, or parts lists,brochures,or any literature for download or purchase, please contact me. I am going to do a full and complete restore on this little unit and put it back original and alive once again. Also, anyone with an engine or a set of rear fenders, please contact me asap.

Thank You,

Drwood1

Hi Guys, I'm new here but have been into Mowers for a long while.

I just got a 1960 Springfield 60A last week!

Looks all original,has the Clinton 4.5 long life Engine,missing the Recoil though.

Hope to get it running soon,have to file the Points to get some spark,and go from there.

Info is tough to find,really glad the 57 manual was posted here.

 

thanks!

Hi Everyone,

My name is Tiffany and I too have a Quick/Springfield 1965 tractor which I rode as a kid.  Here is a picture of it.  I have more, but I am not sure how to add them.  Just getting started and found this wonderful site.  Thank you for all the knowledge I have gained thus far.

Looking for a good likeness of the front decal on the 357a springfield in my avatar.  She's getting a full blown resto/mod to a "4 wheel minibike" type platform.-Thanks, Ted
