Found a nice 208-super

Recommended Posts

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

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.

      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
