Anyone know anything about this? It's small but has a big rear end. I've never seen a s/g on a vertical shaft engine. Anything over good or overly bad about these?

I don't know anything about the tractor, but if that is a 650 or 750 Homelite, You need to grab it.

Looks like an AC Homesteader LT. Same as the Simplicity Broadmoor. Usually 8 hp. Articulates in the center, which is often seized. If seized, can be major job to free up. Good Luck, Rick

It articulates right in front of the gear shift, were the big break in the frame is. The front axle is rigid mounted to the frame.

What he's saying is it twists in the middle and not on top of the front axle.

Regular steering. See the rod coming out the side and spindles in the front axle ?

Sure looks like an AC B207  painted Simplicity orange

It also loks like the 208, but the vertical engines was only in the 207. The 208 went horizontal.

It articulates right in front of the gear shift, were the big break in the frame is. The front axle is rigid mounted to the frame.

 

Use a jack and jack up one side of the tractor, see how it twists in front of the gear stick.

The hood bump makes it pre-Homesteader, either a repainted 207 or a 208.  The 207s were yellow and I believe all the 208s were orange (I'm sure someone will confirm or correct.)  All of the small frame tractors used vertical engines right up through the 5010 Simplicity and the 610 Allis in the late '70s.

It is an early B-207 or B-208...both were yellow, both had vertical shaft engines, and both had the hood scoop and wider rear tires.  Identical machines, except for the engine.  Homesteaders came later, and there were even B-207 and B-208 models in orange and cream, with no hood scoop, between the Yellow varieties, and the Homesteaders of the 70's.  There was also a yellow B model or two with no hood scoop.  Some had 'E' designations for 'electric start', and there was even a B-208 'Super' variety. 

 

They seem fairly scarce, modly because the limited offering seems to have been hacked up between a variety of only slightly different models.

 

These tractors did not articulate, but pivoted in the center, to keep all 4 tires and the mower deck on the ground.  There was never a B-209 model.

They differed from Simplicity cousins, in that they used a Peerless transaxle, instead of the SImplicity built transaxle found in all others.  Due to this difference, they do not take Simplicity rear attachments such as a tiller or revitalizer, as they have no rear PTO.
