Homesteader 8 - Manual or Simplicity equivilant

Recommended Posts

Picked up this little guy today while picking up an Estate Rake. The wife was amazed at the coincidence. When I got home I said to her "You'll never believe it. The guy with the Estate Rake had an AC mower for sale too." Ok... she didn't buy it(and yes I knew he did, before I got there). On to the question... The numbers don't pull up any manuals on the Simplicity website or when searching the parts database online. Does anyone have the manuals(owners, parts, repair) for this? And is there a Simplicity equivalant? thanks

Nice find Bill! I also picked one up just yesterday, but no pics yet. Interesting because yours appears to be an early Homsteader, but has a seat and chrome bumper like the early B-207. Also has rear wheels like a late Homesteader. No Simplicity equivalent, but some of the Broadmoors are close. Here's a parts manual: http://www.simplicitytechpubs.com/6767PRINT/PDF_files/TP_400_3790_01_XX_A.pdf

Yes, they are very close to the B-207 and 208, but they have a different deck and they have a Simplicity transmission instead of the peerless. Back when Simplicity still let you go through the vendor search page, I had found a parts manual for this tractor and printed it, unfortunately I had not saved the PDF. As far as I know they never had the service manual online so I bought one on ebay.

was just thinking about posting the same question about a manual for the two homesteader 8's I picked up two weeks ago. Mine have the three hole bolt on rims on the back, and off the shelf replacement seats. Thanks for the link. 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

      I assume it's a bosche, correct
