I got this plow mounted on an RJ58. It fit nice and seems like it would have worked nice but i never tried it out before removing it. What do you think this is for? Thanks, Rick

It doesn't look like the snow blades that I have seen for the RJ's in the past. That doesn't mean that it wasn't a factory plow for them though. It actually looks like a home built unit. A very nicely done home build though. I'm not an expert on them and I'm sure that someone will be along soon who knows more than I do.

That plow looks to be from a Bolens Ride-a-matic
With a few homemade mounting pieces added to it....

What do you think this is for?


Brian (Bolens 1000) is correct. .....That appears to be a Bolens #21531 plow for the early Ride-A-Matic tractors, and originally would have been painted green..

The top corners of the plow blade have been rounded; probably because a previous owner got tired of gouging his shins when he walked past the plow.

Thank you very much guys, you nailed it on the head. I guess the next question would be, Is it worth anything?

I know this sounds like a dumb reply, but Its only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.
The attachments from the ride-a-matics just dont seem to bring as much as tubeframe attachments do......
