There was only 3 attachments to my knowledge that used this adapter which is what makes it hard to find. Most of the implements were interchangable between the versamatic and ride a matic without any attachments needed. Also PM sent for parts.

Sweet!  :thumbs:

 

It's always a good feeling when you score that hard to find attachment that you have been looking for.

I am not 100% sure on the later rams but the 56.57, and 58 require this adapter. Post a pic of your blower! I am looking for one if you want ot sell it. It should have a tube mounted to the back for this adapter to go in which is how it is raised, lowered and powered.

Different Year tractors had different style hitches..... These were not used on all model Ride-a-Matics or all Front mount attachments.
