Found a nice 208-super

I picked up this original 208 super a few days ago. This is a one owner tractor.

I'm just curious, but what does the "super" stand for? I have a B207, which originally had the 7hp B&S, so I'm assuming that the B208 is equipped with the 8hp power plant. Just wondering....Tom

Barn fresh tractors may become a rarity. Capturing and selling the methane gas from all the chicken poop on them makes them more valuable as a renewable, green, alternate energy resource, LOL!

I think the "super" had something to do with having the seat with arm rests and the raised hood , whereas some had a flat hood like a homesteader 8 and a regular "low back" lawnmower seat. I believe another difference was the "super" tractors had larger tires and hubcaps, these differences were outlined in one of the owners manuals at the time for a B-207 or 208, I have one at home but don't have it here, seems to me that Kent had it posted somewhere on the main site, I'll look for it and post a link if I find it.

Here is the page that may shed some light on the differences between the regular and the "super." http://www.simpletractors.com/operation/207_208/page_2.htm

My 207-Deluxe has the arm rest seat and the chrome bumper. Most B's I've seen had this over thier Simplicity couterparts. Nice catch on the tire size change Maynard.
