 That is a really cool attachment! It looks like it should have wheels on the front. Does anyone make custom brushes? There are a lot of brush companies out there. Just a thought.

I can't wait! Lol

It needs cleaned and greased before that though. It spins but not easily. A little elbow grease and she will be good to go. It needs new brushes before it will clean anything. I'm wiling to eat that the brushes will fly apart the first time it spins over lol

Thanks. The brushes are easy to find as they are just a standard brush but they are expensive. It's going to cost almost $400 for a complete set. The original owner made the modification to the front as I was told he stated it was the only way it worked. I will put it back to original with casters. The left side needs to be moved back to the correct position as well. I was still happy to have it lol

Great looking attachment!  You definitely want to use the casters.

 

Without them you would wear out the brushes in short order, and at the cost you stated, that could get real expensive real quick.

Very cool attachment. I never knew they made a brush for the Ride A Matic. It looks sweet mounted in the tractor too.
