Balances for Anderson double hung window

A home owner from Albuquerque, NM says:
I am searching for balances to repair this window. There are two 25" balances per side. Will the Series 751 balance meet these requirements?

Good morning, and thanks for posting! I cannot tell if these are Series 751 channel balances or not. I'm having a hard time making out what the shoes are. If at all possible, could you remove the balances from the window and take a few pictures of them separately? This would help us identify what Series they are.

If you're having trouble removing the balances, perhaps just take a picture of the shoes at a different angle so that we can see more of its shape.

Attached image for your review. It looks like shoe 15-014, but I will defer to your expertise.

Thanks

Thanks for getting back to us, Richard. You're right, that does closely resemble our 15-014, which leads me to believe that you were correct in looking at our S751-25. Just make sure all the dimensions match.

I also see that your stamp reads 24HD; this would obviously correspond to our 24HD option. However, it may be wise to double check your sash weight just in case. The 24HD option can carry a window sash weight range of 18 through 22 pounds. Does your sash's weight fall within that range?

Please keep in mind that the weight range information is based on 2 balances per sash. Balances are designed assuming friction in the jamb weather-strip will carry a portion of the sash weight. Suggested sash weights are approximate.
