Wonder-Boy 600 6HP (with 32" Rotary Mower)
(Mfr. No. for Model 600 - 990230)

Here's a pair that


It's hard to guess what will impress you most about the Wonder-Boy 600 or 400.  This pair has so much to offer. Perhaps it's the clean trim design ... dependable Briggs & Stratton engines with "Easy-Spin" starting ... soft padded seats and handy, responsive controls ... or the wide line of quick change attachments.   If it's topflight performance you want, it's yours with both Wonder-Boy models. Patented Full-Flex mower action prevents scalping on hills or terraces. Five-mph speeds lets you mow 1-3/8 acres per hour. You'll turn on a 2-ft. radius ... trim within 5/8 in. of walls, fences and trees ... mow up, down or along 40% slopes in perfect safety. And you'll do all these things easily with Simplicity's high ratio steering and tip-toe clutch.  With all their big advantages, there's no question Wonder-Boy leads the field in performance and popularity. For large estates, institutions and suburban homes, the 600 with 32-in. rotary mower is ideal. For smaller estates, city and town houses, you'll find the 400 with 24" rotary mower a wise choice.
