613 ,614 1960
616, 617, 618, 619 1961
622, 623, 624 1962
628, 629 ,630 1963
633, 634, 637 1964
644, 645, 646, 647 1965
The last four for sure used Tech motors, all the rest used Briggs, except the 619 which used a BKN wissy engine.
There are 21 models of DB Suburbans built from 1959 to 1965. The model numbers are from the Sears parts site. The yrs i have figured out by dates on the manuals. The DB Suburban numbers run from the first tractor 917.60601 to the last attachment a snow blower 917.60660. not every number was used, and some early items like chains and the 1st, 3 pt hitch didnt have a 917 number, at least not one listed by Sears. 60 is the Sears id number for an early Suburban, much like 57 is the id number for the walk-behind tractor. I have spent hours and hours seaching the Sears parts site, running known and random number though it to get the model and attachments they go with. I also have several numbers for the custom tractor built in 1964, that was the fore runner of the first Roper tractor. All Suburbans built after 1965 are Roper made. Any Suburban or custom with a foot clutch is also Roper built.
