I just acquired my fathers Homelite T-16H tractor with a tiller and blade. Does anyone else on here own one? Where can I get parts, and are implements available?

 

Thanks

 

Bill

Welcome!!

 

There are a few members here with homelites, pretty sure some of them will be along to give you advice. I think the Homlite was built by simplicity and many parts may interchange, but  "don't quote me on that" :D

Welcome to GTT. There are several people that have them. I'm not familiar with that exact tractor but you will find that many Allis Chalmers and Simplicity attachments will fit yours. Check out our Manuals Section for 3 free downloads per day. Look under "other" for your tractor. Good Luck, Rick

 

Parts from sponsors and congrats on it being an heirloom.

Welcome, and congrats!  The Homelites are fairly desirable...some more than others.  We would love to see what you have.  There are two basic types, and then variations therein.  Attachment compatibility will depend entirely upon which you have.  If Simplicity built, then most simplicity stuff pins right up.

 

This type was built by Simplicity:

This type was built by Allis Chalmers:

I have a simplicity built one. I have discovered a very slow gas leak out of the carburetor. I have the full manual to it, just wondering about implements and parts. uploadfromtaptalk1423860785526.jpg

It does look great!  You should be fine with anything Simplicity of the era.  Any rear attachments will work...any front or mid will too.  It doesn't look like you have a front PTO, so something like a snowblower can run off the mid with the right hitch.

If you find something that suits you, shoot us a picture and we can give you the greenlight on compatibility.

-Revitalizer/detatcher/aerator (pto powered)

-Weedcutter/brush cutter

-10" moldboard plow

-various cultivators & harrows

-leaf vac (rear mounted, and cart varieties)

-sleeve hitch for a wide variety of other Brinly style rear attachments

-Sicklebar mowers
