Price looks pretty good to me, especially since it has so many attachments. I'd buy it if I thought my wife wouldn't kill me for trying to stuff another project in the shed...

Couple of thoughts; Do ye haveth room in thy shed?, Anything to do or bribe thy wife with in mind? Don't people realize thou are part of an important conservation collective, dedicated to keeping history alive??...you're probably right, she'll likely kill 1st. :bash:

300$ you must be kidding!! That seems like a great price to me. With all those attachments that would make a great project for someone.

A Ridemaster with all those attachments at $300 is a great price, a super price, I'd say. I can't imagine it'll last long.

If it was a little closer I'd run over and grab it.... Got to save my $$ to restore my green Brier... :D

If it were closer I would probably take some interest on it. But, its just a wee but to far for me.

Thats a great price on what appears to be a very solid old machine. If I was closer, I'd be knocking on his door right now! :thumbs:

Do ye haveth room in thy shed?

My log splitter is sitting outside under a tarp, so there is no space at all (in a 12x20 shed...). I need to sell my Ariens GT17 Loader to make some space.

Methinks thy shed 'ist too small for thine passion. I share in this. How did the ariens end up on the chopping block first?

My wifes brother-in-law has 2 of the Ridemasters. They are restored, but not as perfect looking as the $2500 one!
One of his is a 1948 that belonged to his father....He wouldn't part with that one for love or money!

I feel your pain. Space is always an issue. I have to park a couple outside now... Hate to, but it's the way it is.

No need for a loader anymore. Want to focus my efforts on the 1050 and the 800 (and the FZJ80, but that's a thread for another forum...)

Somewhat off topic, but I'd really like this too:

My name is Shawn, and I have a tractor problem.
