T-16H, T-16S and T-10
The 1973 Homelite lawn & garden tractors.
Three rugged, powerful, handsome machines. Homelite T-16H, T-16S and T-10,
more horsepower, balanced engines, greater job handling capabilities with
more attachments. 42” or 48”
triple rotary mower decks. Homelite no-scalp mower decks attach to the
tractor front axle, not to the chassis. So that they follow the contour
of the lawn and float over dips and ridges to prevent grounding and
Top of the line T-16H has hydrostatic drive
which lets you go from any speed forward to any speed reverse using just one
lever.. . and without shifting. Comes with electric lift as standard
equipment. Homelite T-16S with unique shuttle transmission is both simple
and convenient. This single lever control lets you go smoothly from full
forward to full reverse in any one of four pre selected gears . . .
without using the clutch. The HomeliteT-10
has a two speed selector coupled with a three speed forward and one reverse,
gear box to give you 6 forward and 2 reverse speeds. Each transmission lets
you match your tractor speed to the specific job conditions. Front and rear,
engine driven P.T.O.’s make for maximum attachment usage. No separate
engines to fool with.
Choose from over 30 different attachments
that make these tractors year-round yard-care job handlers. Rototiller, snow
thrower, sweeper, revitalizer, roller, ‘dozer or cart make yard care easy.
All Homelite attachments are quick and simple to fit; unlike most of our
competitors we use quick-pins to secure our attachments rather than clumsy,
awkward nuts and bolts. And to keep the sun off your head in summer and the
snow off your back in winter we have tractor cabs.
All Homelite tractors meet or exceed all
A.N.S.I. safety standards. Our mower decks extender
chutes deflect thrown objects down to reduce the danger of injury and
damage. Our ignition interlock system prevents accidental starting when the
transmission or attachments are engaged. At Homelite we believe that safety
should be built in, not added on. For year round• working under the most
strenuous conditions, there’s no substitute for Homelite lawn & garden
