Jerome, Thanks for posting this photo of the Bean Cutler plow.

 

Obviously, they made the plow with a flat sided beam instead of the "H" beam like the manual shows.

If a new mounting bracket was fabricated for the front of this plow, it would look very close to the original plow.

Are you talking about the one out your way on craigslist ?
If I remember right, he has several implements for that doesn't he ?

Five or six years ago I would have said that was a realistic asking price.
With the economy dropping the value of these Ridemasters have gone down over the last few years.
However, the value of these tractors is starting to come back up and the selling prices are climbing back up.

From what Information I have been able to dig up on the Ridemaster tractors, they seem to be most prevalent in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin.
They get harder to find as you travel out away from these states.

Depending on where it's located, the condition, what year the tractor is and what implements are included ( and depending on how bad someone wants one ) it could sell.

Do you have serial numbers off the tractor and the engine and any photos of it ?

engine serial # 1007368   i looked it up, and it came up Dec of 47. this must either be a replacement (still an AKS), or the machine is a late 47 model....the serial on the machine is J29738. my guess is that this was one of the last Bean Cutlers made. i hope more information comes around on these, as it seems there is actually very little known about them.

i agree. so that means that they were indeed selling both the Bean Cutlers, and the Ridemasters, at the same time. wow, talk about confusing....lol. my guess is that they made/sold the Bean Cutlers from San Jose right up until they were out of stock for them, all the while, making the Ridemasters out of the Wisconsin plant.

J-29738 This one is a December 1947 tractor.
