Homesteader 8 ID

Recommended Posts

Good evening, just picked up an ebay purchase of 7 mowers which includes 1 sears custom 1 scamp 1 continental 1 637 yoeman 1 5010 sim and 2 homesteader 8's. My question is after viewing the homesteader's in the simpletractor info I notice they have a plastic steering wheel where mine have the three chrome spoke wheel like is on my 110 and 112. Does this make them earlier production year machines or does it mean nothing. Any input on this would be of assistance. thanks from the path of tropical storm Gabriel she wimpered like a kitten.

Yes, yours is an earlier one, likely a 1971. There were 2 versions, I don't remember where the serial # breaks were for the change. I have one of the earlier ones myself. I found this in the gallery, it shows both models. http://www.simpletractors.com/gallery/homesteader.htm

Thanks Chris after I posted last night I saw the two different one's in the gallery. After seeing them and your profile pic, mine are like yours with the chrome wheel and black lettering on white background decals. Thanks jeff.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
