Hi
Just saw my first one of these. Very unique little rider!
Front wheel drive, spin the wheel all the way around. One of the early zero - turns, 6 hp.
Anyone have any more information, year, are they common ?

Looks like a rebadged Big Mow to me.

My son has an older Ride King and 5 Big Mows. The Ride King has a v-shaped hood with Ride King sticker across the front. The bolts go straight-up through the top of the hood. The steering wheel is straight up instead of an angle with a big steering wheel.
He thinks it is a rebadged Big Mow. He doesn't recall ever hearing of a Ride King made in that body style.

Heres some differences between a V and a K Big Mow Mower.
The paint on the V is original. The K has had a older repaint but is now fading.

Hi Ted,
If you are talking about the 1x4 board between the recoil and the gas tank. It is not a board. It is a metal belt cover that was original to the garden tractor.

That's okay. I don't have a phone with pictures. Mines a landline. But, my monitor is going out. It keeps winking at me;)
