One of my neighbors up the road has a Speedex. I don't know what model it is, but it's a worker, not a looker. I believe that he uses it to plow the drive in the winter. The earlier posts in this thread were talking about the engine slide clutch set-up, That's how my Troy-Bilt tiller is. When you move the lever to engage the drive and/or PTO, the egine slides upward and tightens the belt(s).

......From what I understand, the only difference between a S-18 and a S-19 are the engines. The 18 has a Kohler and the 19 has a Briggs. Both are 8 hp.


I stand corrected. I found this information on the S19 tractors. The 19 had only the stationary style engine.

This one was at my local show today. Not the original engine by any means, as it had a Kohler Magnum on it.

I am lucky enough to have 2 of them . I have a 1968 s-18 and a 1977 1630. Really neat tractors.

we have the very last speedex prototype tractor built in ravenna ohio (still new). when the plant moved to pa they built speedex for a short while in 94 (we also just added a pa made rare speedex 1691 sold to a factory employee who built them) and sold to armstrong tractor which used the prototype to build their new model 1872. we also accuired the strongland factory files which contained most blueprints, vendor, sales etc.. we have most of the attachments offered (quite a few), 4 tractors including a 2072 and even the only backhoe they ever made. heavy plate & bar steel fabrication - no plastic!

I just acquired an 820 with deck, but it seems to have the wrong mule drive and didn't have an engine. Anyone have any information on this model such as year, engine, etc...
