Homestead vs Broadmoor vs Homelite

Recommended Posts

Since getting the Allis Homesteader, I have been researching the crossreference stuff but dont have a direct model Simplicity might have made like the Homesteader. The gallery and model brochures. Some come close, maybe the 728 Broadmoor or the Homelite T-8? Any suggestions?

The 728 is a fair amount different from the Homesteader. Most of the sheet metal, and mower deck are different. The Homesteader 8 was modeled on the AC B207, main difference is the B207 had a peerless trans while the Homesteader has a Simplicity built transmission. The broadmoor with the most interchanging parts is probably a 717, though it still has a lot of differences. There were even 2 different Homesteader 8's. There is an early one whith black lettering on the hood decals and foot pegs, and there is a later one with white lettering on the hood and larger footrests more like those of a 728 broadmoor, also the steering wheels are different and the fender pan differs a little.

Chris, thanks for the info. By just comparison of the gallery and other brochure info, the Homesteader looks like a combination of components from several models. Mike, would be interested in the snowblower but funds and time are lacking currently - typical isnt it? Will keep in mind though.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
