Hello all,

I have the opportunity to purchase a speedex s19 with an 8 hp kohler engine. Now im not very smart when it comes to speedex as this would be my first one but I didn't even know they came with a kohler engine. Anyway it has a mower, cultivator, disc, and garden plow and the tractor its self is in good condition. Anyone know what a fair offer would be?

I think I can get this one cheaper than that. Any idea on what year it is or where I can go to find out?

Looks like with a bath, would be pretty clean restored tractor. I would think $500 range easy. I just sold my 1430 at Portland and got $550, and it was all done and pretty, but no attachments, new tires, etc. I let it go too cheap probly, went real fast. I don't like S series cause usually just had a forward/reverse single speed trans in them, but they pull pretty hard most times. Kohler engine would be better I think. Not many had K engines, most are Briggs. Model and serial MAY be stamped in frame on left side way up front. Might be covered by new paint if thick. Some also had riveted tags there, but never found explanation of those numbers or purpose on tag. Take good light and rag to wipe off area to check. Might be suprised it was from 70's even tho they look older, always is that way with Speedex.

I was thinking it probably was from the 70's. It really is a straight tractor and in good shape. I should know more about whether I'll be able to buy it by the weekend.

I am not a Speedex expert,this is what I know there should be a date code and serial number twords the front outside of the frame rail,I don`t know witch side.It will be two letters followed by the number tractor built that year,starting with AA for 1966 BB for 67 and so on.The light supports off the front axel are factory,the lights may have been changed,I`m not sure.I think with that style belt guard it has the varialble speed option again I an not sure,It looks to have all the original decals and tires the paint it original too.Tractors like this don`t come up a lot.I love it!Price is between you and the owner,Good luck! Chuck

So I ended up buying the speedex and a cub 102 for $500! I think that's a good deal in my book!

Sounds very good for two tractors. Now get that washed up and looking nice and send us some more pictures of it all pretty! You will like the way it steers I bet. Hope it runs OK for you w/litle effort. Bet spark is gonna be biggest issue with the Briggs. Might wanna check for mouse nests in the housing also if has been setting long time, which it looks like it has.  OK, forgot it was a kohler, but chck for nest's anyway. Those are a little tighter in the case and harder for mouse to get in than the bigger Briggs were.
