So I'm in between houses, and I managed to pick up another tractor! Thank goodness my friend offered to let me keep it at his house, because I KNOW the hotel won't let me keep it here.
I know have an elusive half side closed side Jacobsen . It's a 16hp homelite model mid 80's. Comes with snowblower, mower deck, and a plow. It needs some tlc but it runs and moved on to trailer under its own power.

What's homelite got to do with Jake?  Jake not a company anymore??  Looks better than most cheaper stuff I've seen with Homelite name. The rear tires look kinda small, maybe flat in pix?  Still seem small for tractor. Toss that blower, get blade working, they work better in snow.

Way to go Tom! That is definitely an elusive tractor.  Looks like you got some wheel weights too.

So, what's up with the half side panels. I saw one in Nova Scotia, not to long ago. Why do people cut them in half ?? Or is it factory done, and why. ??

Noel

Nice find, by the way !!!

Half sides are factory! I believe it was the factories attempt at trying to keep the engine cool.



The tires are flat and are the correct ones for that horsepower and tractor. Homelite got on board after Ford pulled out and went to Gilson. Snowblower is going to my friend whose house the tractor and all my garage contents are being stored. He has a Jake 1450 I traded him. He has an 1/8 mile driveway that it would be perfect for. My new driveway isn't big enough for that setup. A regular snowblower is sufficient. The Plow will be primarily used to complement the 195 loader.
One of the weights got chewed open by an animal and needs sand and a patch. Came with chains too! 👍👍👍

Got one about a month ago same model. I wanted the tiller and rear pto setup but owner wouldn't separate . Glad he didn't smooth and quite ride . Need to replace front pto and will make a mower out of it.

So rear tires are 23x10.5x12. It also has the adjustable seat. Can't see the dash, does it have the factory hour meter. Dose it have the 5 us gallon gas tank instead of the 3 us gallon one. If it has all this , it is a true 16 hp tractor. It does not have the optional front hydraulic ports.

Boy are you a dreamer! All the plow does is mess up your driveway , the blower will clean it and not leave piles at the edges.
Nice find Tom! When you moving in to the new pad?

Folks keep coming on here and confessing their addictions. It does no good. We all have it. Since we are here we obviously don't have a cure. . .   and don't care.      If you care and want a cure . . . sell your tractors, all of them, take the money and get a therapist.

 

 

 Toss that blower, get blade working, they work better in snow.

N NNNNoooo! All a blade does is make a big pile you can't move and can't push anymore over. And, everyone knows snow piles attract children to make snow caves. Very dangerous!!!

Ha, you guys must not have the right plows. I use the big Power Kings and they can push it fine and clean. Yes, if you don't start by pushing back some in more snow areas, you do get piles and little harder to push over them. BUT, haven't seen snow like that in my years of living in Indiana.  Wisconsin we had bigger snows, but not here.

Noel, I'll check this weekend. And get more pics. It does not have the auxiliary hydraulics yet!
