Trying to trim the Wish List... very nice T16

Recommended Posts

Scratched one off my want list today...I never really thought this many 'keepers' would find their way home, and my concern is growing. I can't afford a shop expansion, so I'll just have to play the tractor-shuffle a bit more often. Super clean, appears all original except for the seat and 12V coil. Well cared for, for sure. No deck rust to speak of, and runs and drives great. This is my first running Shuttle, and I like it! It's a smooth operator, and seems very effective Would make an excellent mowing, blowing and tilling setup from what I can tell. It even has belts that look new, with 'Simplicity' still clearly visible. Electric lift is neat...another first for me. It's quicker and quieter than I thought it would be. Electric PTO is slick too. I really like the way it's set up...must have been a dream machine back in the day. Heck, it still is for me. ^

And a winter carb cover...never seen one on an AC Homelite.

I got her at auction, and it looks like there's witness marks from duct tape...think she sat roadside for sale with a sign on her?

I always wanted one of those. I really like blue.

You really shouldn't be taking pics while you're driving, though. You might crash and scratch the tractor.

id="quote">not too often you can pull them off the trailer and mow . That has to be one of the nicest original T-16's around ^. I like the shuttle drives. the electric lifts are good for a snow blower but a little slow for me with a plow blade.

      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!😁
