Hi all. New here, and fairly new to collecting GTs. Any of you guys have any Homelite T-16 H or other Homelite tractors? My Dad sold these in the 1970s. We had a HVAC business and things nwere slow, we took on the Homelite brand and had it for seceral years. My younger brother and I worked on mowers and such and set up the ones we sold. When my Dad passed away in 1995 I got his T-16 H and have had it since then. I just recently found and got another one. These tractors are my favorite. I only wish we had gotten all the necessary parts to operate the rear implements. Short a key component but still searching for it. Thanks :usa:

:welcome: to GTTALK, I'm sure there are more Homelite owners here. A lot of our guys have a mix of brands.

Nice that you have your Dad's tractor, that means a lot.

Never seen one first hand, but I did make a set of hood decals for a guy once a few years back. I think some had a different decal design than these.
I saw a smaller model a few years ago in a bad state, but the guy didn't want to sell. :-(
Welcome to GTT!

:wave: hamman, Welcome to GTTalk! We're happy to have you here with us. Since you were in the business so to speak, do you have any literature left from then? As mentioned above, we do like the pictures! Any brochures and such would be really neat to see as well! We hope that you enjoy the site and take advantage of all it has to offer.

I figure you know this, but the Allis 416H was "I believe to be" identical. It at least was nearly identical if not exactly the same. Makes for easier parts location.

Thanks guys, Been away from here for awhile. I do have some of the literature yet and a lot of info on mowers lawn tractors, walkbehind mowers etc.. To be honest I am not very computer literate. I will see if my son can help me post my Pictures of tractors and brochures and such. Apoligies for not getting back sooner. Thanks again for the welcome. I'll post as soon as I can. I did just pick up a Simplicity 38" tiller for the rear of my T-16. I have to make the lift kit from the electric lift to the rear. The rear lift arm came with the tiller. Tiller had only been used twice. Pictures soon.

Hamman what part of Michigan are you in? A friend of mine picked up a T16H a monther or so ago. We have been looking for one to take a look at and get an idea of how it all goes back together. We live a bit north of Grand Rapids. If you could post up some pictures of the motor that would be great. He has a mower, snowblower and tiller for it all homelite brand.

I must apologize for my absence. I forgot that I posted this here. I do have some old brochures, parts list, owners amnuals for the T-16H, T-15H, T-12, T10 Rm5 RE5 and some walk behind mowers tillers snow blowers. As soon as I can get my Scanner hooked up to the laptop I will scan in a couple of these Feel free to contact me via email at , daddyshamradio@hotmail.com for any other questions. Again I apologize for not getting back to this post sooner. Thanks for the warm welcome. I guess I am showing my age as it is the memory they say goes first.
