This tractor has the sperry rand hydro if it is original. Not as tough as the sunstrand that came in the ariens.

I used to think this colour scheme was pretty damn ugly but it's starting to grow on me!

For colour you still can't beat the orange if you ask me! Biased opinion maybe ;)

An S14 Ariens is the same tractor, from what I've been told the hydro didn't change until the "G" series, most people I talked to prefer the Sperry Rand hydro.

From what I can tell from going through some manuals. Ariens made three model of the 931 series using the Vickers hydro. Then switched to the sunstrand. How long of a time period this was I don't know.

931001- 12horse
931002- 14horse
931003- 16horse

Do a little more research, my s16 has a sunstrand and it is heavier duty than the sperry.

To each their own!

If it works it works. I'd still buy it lol.

They are a good hydro, just a bit older and the design not quite as up to date. My dad has his since '72 when he got it new.

Didn't see your post shorty! But yes you are correct. A LITTLE knowledge is dangerous because they had so many variations over the years. You really have to do your research to know all the variations and what they had for parts.
