He's had that on CL off and on for two years or more.


Don't know why it hasn't sold.  At one point there was some discussion as to whether or not he had the correct model number posted.

The 24" & 30" reel mower attachments were basically the same, except that the hitches were different for the different years/tractors.


It is possible that it's the correct model number on the attachment, but it will definitely not fit a Ride-A-Matic or Versa-Matic in its present configuration.   .....That style hitch fit the Bolens PowerHo walking tractor.


Early Ride-A-Matics and VersaMatics shared a different style hitch than the PowerHo's.


Later Ride-A-Matics used an even different style hitch.


The hitch on the reel mower attachment could be easily changed from the PowerHo-style to the VersaMatic-style by unbolting the hitch, and bolting on the other style.


The price seems fair, as the condition is very good!
