Any garden tractor can mow,
till, plow, cultivate or grade. But with the Homelite T16H you can reap
something extra: incredible operating ease. The comfort features that
are standard equipment on our 16-horsepower model virtually eliminate the dirty work involved in working the soil.
For starters, electric starting is standard. All you do is
turn a key from the driver’s seat. Attachments are simpler to attach,
as well. Instead of hard-to-fit and hard-to-remove nuts and bolts, they’re
assembled with easy-to-fit, easy-to- remove pins. You can also lift and
lower the attachments from the driver’s seat. And not manually, with a
handle. Electrically, with a switch.
And since you're spending so much time in the
driver's seat, we've deep padded for smoother riding even over the toughest
But don’t think that all this
excessive attention to the driver minimizes the tractor’s performance in any
way. The T16H performs better than tractors that are far more difficult to
It has a hydrostatic transmission that lets
you shift without a clutch pedal. And it enables you to vary the tractor
speed while the speed of the attachment remains constant. Since the number
of attachments is a crucial tractor factor, we offer a large assortment to
choose from. 18 in all.
And if you’d rather not restrict your mowing and gardening
to Sunday driving, headlights are standard for evening use. Consult the
Yellow Pages or call this toll free number: 800-447-4700 (in Illinois,
800-322-4400) to find the Homelite dealer nearest you. He’ll be happy to
point out even more of the easy-to-operate benefits of the Homelite T16-H.
Our cream of the crops.
