500..00 bought this, I just have fix a flat on my trailer and pick it up. Its a Allis built Homelite, not a Simplicity built tractor. These are super rare in the 16hp B&S hydro version, This is the type of tractor I buy, 2nd owner, well taken care, and LOW production, there way cheaper in the long run. It's hard to turn down any tractor that comes along, but if your patient you'll fill your shed with a lot nicer tractors

I have a 1973 Allis 416 Shuttle and a 1973 Allis 416 Hydro to keep it comfortable and they can talk about old times rolling off the South Carolina assembly line.

Very nice looking Homelite! It would look even better sitting next to the three I already have. lol. Should last you a very long time. I really like mine. You don't see them for sale much anymore. Good score. Roger.

Thanks tractorguy, you might be disappointed in the Cub 1200, its hydro has three gears and a clutch.

I kept seeing yours in your sig, so I knew I had to have one, lol. Typically I only collect Kohler hydros, but I broke that rule with the Bolens H16 with the Tecucmesh OHV16hp, going to get another one of those and possibly a older Simplicity as well.

Nice find, the only compaint I had about mine was that darn carb. It would only stay happy a month at a time. Loved how it mowed, though.

Those carbs could be finicky, basically you have to learn and understand them inside out, rebuild one from top to bottom and they will give good service for another 20-30 years. The Kohler carbs are simple and bullet proof, the Tecumseh carbs almost as good, but you really had to have mechanical skills to own a tractor with a Briggs engine and updraft carb.
