Picked up an Ariens S 12 the other day thats a little bit of an oddity,it has mechanical lift instead of hydraulics.Its has the original tires, the fiberglass hood and seat/fender pan is in perfect shape think thats the only one of those I've seen that was fiberglass that wasn't beat up.Has a 42" deck.

I also just bought an s-12 with the same options. i have a question. will the rear rockshaft off of a s-18, gt-18 fit on this s-12 ? It is set up for this option but wasn't added at the factory. I would like to add this as well as the hydraulic lift. Thanks Brian

It should, if your S-12 has a mid mount lift. The parts are hard to find. try Joe's Out Door Power and Dakota Power on ebay. The linkage is where you'll have the problem, if you dont have the slot out the side of the tractor for the lift selector knob, let me know if you like the look of my lift, there around 150.00
