Michelles birthday was Saturday. Today we were at a local tractor show and a guy had a pair of 600's with lots of attachments. 1 600 was an older one with just the throttle on the steering column and the other had the throttle and choke on the steering. I waited till the end of the day to make an offer and I walked away being $50 to cheap. While loading up our tractors Michelle mentioned I should just pay the extra $50 because she knew I really wanted it. So we went back with $250 and took it home.

The 600 is in amazing original condition. The motor was rebuilt which is original to the tractor, but the rest is all 1962. We all know how hard it is finding a good 6hp briggs for these tracotrs. I think we made a great purchase.

From what I understand the 181-01 was 1962 then the -02 models were 63'
The decals and choke and thottle locations are a dead give away.
My 600 is the same as yours



Mabye Bruce has some better insight on this......
