Hi Guys,

 

I'm new to Bolens and just acquired a Husky 600 with recoil start. I read that the 600 was built from 1962-1965. This one is white/Brown, so it must be either a 1964 or 1965?

 

The serial # is: 27948

 

Is there a Bolens serial number chart to determine what year it was manufactured?

 

Thanks, Rob

Assuming the paint is original it sounds like you have the 1964 or 1965 Husky 600

if you have your B&S engine numbers that will help narrow it down

What is the modal on the serial number tag? That will help ID it.

What I can make out looks like 181 04

 

I'm curious to know what that means. Thanks!

The 181-04 was a Bolens 600 equipped with electric starter installed at the factory.

 

It was produced in 1964 and 1965.
