Hey everyone I'm new to the forum and recently bought 2 of these tractors with blades and wheel weights unfortunatly I cannot find a mower deck any where and would rather not spend the 1100 dollars they are at the dealer any help at finding a mower deck would be greatly appreciated. My wife thinks they were a bad buy because you cant mow with them but for 50 dollars a peice running and driving I couldnt pass them up thanks again, any info would be great

First of all I must say :wewantpics:

 

 

 

Welcome to the forum!!! We are glad you stopped in! There's a bunch of smart guys in this forum. I for one deal with Sears GTs (obviously) and don't know a lot about Ariens. There maybe another model of mower that you can get a deck from.

 

 

We all have been in your shoes. If I listened to my wife about 'bad' buys I wouldn't own anything. Beauty in the eyes of my wife is something shiny and pretty. Beauty in my eyes is a smooth running engine and strong as a ox. I do believe the wife is catching on though.

arienspwr, Welcome to GTtalk, glad to have you here with us. I would check with some of our Site Sponsors, I bet at least one of them has a good used deck. If you get the chance be sure to introduce yourself over in our "Member introduction forum", here a link,

And be sure to post some photos if you can.

 

By the way, New Holland and Ariens are the same tractor.

Welcome to GTTalk.  We're glad to have you. 

 

I can't help you with the deck.  Try Bob's Lawn and Garden Tractors or Joe's Outdoor Power.  Both are real gentlemen and if they don't have it, I guarantee that might just be able to point you to someone who does.

Wow, you cant beat a price like that! The ones I find usually are about ten times that. It looks to be in good shape. The fiberglass doesn't have any breaks, just some minor wear. I learned to drive on a S-14 and lots of good memories. Just the other week I saw Joes Outdoor had a deck listed. Not real often one is listed by itself. Sure is nice to have the extra light in the back, I just added one the other winter and was surprised how much I use it.

arienspwr, Ben is one of our Site Sponsors.  Thanks You Ben for referring him to the "other guys", mighty kind of you !! :thumbs:

 

ariens, I also wanted to make sure that you knew what I meant when referring to New Holland and Ariens being the same tractor. In the 1970's Ariens re badged their tractors for New Holland to sell. Twenty years later Toro supplied New Holland with GT's, same model as the Wheel Horse, just painted blue.

How big are those wheel weights? It looks like they are a heavier set, stick out a bit farther. Also there are manuals here for the 931 series if you need one. I found the parts manual to be fairly good.

Not sure on the wheel weight size I know there heavy though I'll check tommorow and let you know exact size. Heres another pic I took earlier.

I was also wondering I read some where that the deck from a gravely 18 h would bolt up to these tractors any one know if theres any truth to this?
