Thought I share some pics of the Homesteader Tractor I picked up this summer & my ugly mug here on RedSquare. I shared these on Facebook earlier this year too. A little history, The Homesteader tractor was made in Clinton, Arkansas in the mid 70ies by Bill Anderson. A side business to his trailer manufacturing. Made with 8 & 10HP Tucky power, 11HP B&S (mine), 16HP Kohler & a 7HP Lister diesel intended for the export market. They use a Peerless 2300 4 speed gearbox with chain reduction from the Peerless axles to the wheel hubs. The steering is just as crude with, but functional with two sprockets & a chain. Yes...those really are wheelbarrow tires on front & how they were made. The tractor came with a snowplow, garden plow, cultivators & what was left of 48' mower deck. I really enjoyed turning the garden with it after we were done for the year. The seat get's a little hot....should be an easy fix with a Cub style muffler. It's a tuff little tractor & about as simple as you can make one. Bill Anderson must have appreciated function over style.
