Is this a walk behind or a tractor mount? If it is a tractor mount, it sounds like it would be for the S series which was bought by Ariens. They had that as there 931 series. If it is a walk behind, I know nothing of it. I grew up a few miles from the Sperry plant and always thought they made a good tractor.  Hope this helps.

all good info. I do think they made a walk behind as well, they built good machines, that's why Ariens bought their L&G and Ford bought their Tractor/Implement line

That is a new one for me. After I made the other post, I saw that this was in the walk behind forum.

Guess I better read a bit more before I reply. :(
