wow great find wilberj  congrads hope i find myself  one someday.  are the ridemasters and the bean culters the same or are they to different machines thanks in Christ  bobby

from what i have read, the Bean Cutler was produced from 1946 to early 47, under the FMC label, out of San Jose California. the Ridemaster was made from early 47 to 1958, under the Bolens label, and were  longer. there are other differences, but these are the biggest between them.

I see that he's using the Johnson Forklift to move it around 

 

Good to see a 'specialty' Bolens do what it's supposed to do :D :D :D
