Good evening. I'm hoping you guys can confirm that this tractor is an S24 and weigh in on the year and what you think it would be worth. I don't have much information about the tractor yet. I'm new to Speedex but love the look and have ready great things about their durability. Thanks for your feedback.

S24 is supposed to come with a 10HP, the letter designation in the serial corresponds to the year.  A starts in 1960 N ends at 1972, fill in the blanks for the letters to correspnding years in between.  For the S24.  S23 had a 9HP same serial number designation.  Let use know, nice machine!!

Strong looking tractor. What's with the deck top under it. A trail groomer?

I hope to learn a bit more about this tractor but the seller hasn't responded yet to my inquires. Maybe it's a new side chute snow thrower/groomer.

That does appear to be the correct deck from the other Speedex's I've seen.

It looks like the back of the deck is open. It may just be rust damage.

I like the look of Speedex tractors.  What's up with the bolts and washers on the rear wheel?

Nice looker, love those big flat fenders on big ones.  I agree that looks like stock deck. Those were very heavy steel and had gear boxes with complicated shafts and clips between them. I think the back is there, just tucked in sort of and looks out of site in this picture.  Those bolts on wheel might be just that, bolts and nuts!  I had a newer Speedex and it had strange size studs and some were broken. Couldn't seem to find that thread or diameter and knocked them out and used bolts too. I Did use tapered wheel nuts tho and no washers. Looks like stock wheel,  they had that "bumped up" ring in them, different than most wheel brands.  The trannies are sideways in them and weird chian drive to bull gear and rear end. Think the rear wheels and adjusters are all broken off or removed from the deck and it's hanging low w/out the system. Looks like been used that way a long time.

JD., They are rear discharge, so it's open across the back.
