Anyone ever see a Homelite like this one before? I have seen a lot of them but this particular model I believe I haven't seen yet. Not mine or even for sale. Saw this on FB and a guy is restoring it and wants some info on it. Thanks. Roger.

The decal on the grill looks a lot like the remains of the one on my Bready built Homelite.  I think mine was made in the early to mid '60s. Might be another place to look for info.  Hope this helps.     Stewart

I talked to him a couple of years ago about it and [I think] at the time sent him a picture of the grille so he'd know what it is supposed to look like.   My dad has one and I mowed with it one time just to check it out.  They have a friction drive rubber wheel like a Snapper RER and I was less than impressed with it at the time but its been over a decade since I ran it.  Don't remember much about it except

it had something like 5 speeds: 

5 slow

4 slower

3 slower yet

2 are we moving

1 waste of time

That goes back a way's for me mowed grass with one of those 30 years ago or more.Just like Gtractor said used a friction disc remembered them handing on the wall in the building Had a Teccumseh ran good but if you cut it off before you were done would work you to death to get it started again
