It has to be one that Ariens made under the Gravely name. I am sure the deck would switch over to your S-14. Is it in running condition?

That is an Ariens tractor with a Gravely badge slapped on it.  Don't know about swapping parts to a badged Ariens though.

It is an Ariens re-badged as a Gravely, all the parts will be the same.

 

I hope it runs, it will be a great 18hp Gt for you.

Sweet thanks for all the info guys I went and picked it up and got it home its a bit rougher than the pictures in person but the mower deck does seem to be in good shape.

It does need a little TLC just the typical things from sitting. I'll post more pictures tommorow when its light out. Thanks again guys
