This looks like a decent deal for someone who wants a Speedex.  The implements are probably worth the $1,200 asking price.

Pretty cool, I like it!  Vanguard V-twin, so has to be a late model.  I don't need anymore, but would be good deal for someone, strong puller.

Looks like an older tractor but with a modern engine.

Still pretty cool though.

It's pretty hard to tell age from the look of Speedex big wheel tractors.  They've got 1950s styling regardless of when built.  It also doesn't help that they seemed to build number series tractors with whatever parts were handy rather than a consistent run.

 

I don't think I've seen an 1832 before.  Other than the engine it looks to me exactly like an original 1632.  My guess would be they put the Kohler 18 on the 1632 (instead of a Briggs 16 single cylinder) and badged it 1832.  I think the engine is probably original.

Truthfully ive never seen a speedex :)

I was just looking at the squared off lines and pan seat that looks very 40s ish lol.

I thought tractors of that size were required by law to have ROPS around 85?

I could be wrong though. Wouldnt be the first time :p

Judging from craigslist most of them ended up in Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania.  I went to Canton Ohio for mine.

 

Not sure about the ROPS.  They aren't heavy tractors.  The 1631 and 1632 both weigh 830 lbs. according to the manuals.  If that tractor is just the 1632 with a bit larger engine it probably doesn't go 900 lbs.

OK, just figured Van Guard as they used a lot near end, my error.  Yes, they always look older than they are. Numbers are usually HP then the trans or axle speeds or types in last two digits. 32 should mean 3spd and 2spd axle?  or similar. Hard to keep it all straight. This one has the heavy Bull gear drive used for decades. They also used trans-axles of various makes. Also near end some had plastic bodies, but were same chassis, then were bought again and most plastic discarded and went back to metal.  I have some from late 80's and even 92 that look almost same, but have Peerless trans-axles. Were some Hydros made also, have one of those too.  Early hydros had the Eaton or similar unit right in front of driver cross-wise, just like the 3spd was mounted, others have same axle/rear as the MTD 990

s and others used. That is what I have. I've had one bigger that was only a few made, heavier, but still kind of crude, Big Vanguard in it.

 

Heck, someone just buy it, you'll like it, end of story!!

Thats a Kohler command, the fly screen, and spec tag give those clues away, as to hp, I cant see 4 sure in original pics. My guess is it's the same, or close to the as pictured here by me?

Cheers, and enjoy a good buy, if u buy it!;)

A 1632 should have a 16HP engine.
