After 5 years of searching, I finely got a plow for the front of my Ridemaster.
I bought this 1948 Ridemaster back in the summer of 2009.
It came with the front mounted "A" frame and cable assembly for raising and lowering front implements.

I have been looking for a snow plow for it ever since I got the Ridemaster.
I have seen two other snow plows for sale but they were both pretty beat up.
The front snow plows were made out of aluminum and they didn't take much abuse.

This plow is out in New Jersey and he had it listed on ebay for pick-up only.
I emailed the seller and he agreed to ship it.
The plow is dirty but is complete and is in really good condition.
Here are the photos off ebay.

These are the only photos that I have of a Ridemaster with the snow plow mounted on it.

That's a nice survivor.   Its almost worth leaving original, but I guess it wouldn't match the tractor.

 

Something about those Bolens Ridemasters is so fascinating.  I think if one comes up locally, I'll be there with a trailer.

Well I slaked at the end of the listing and I missed it! Sorry I made you pay over $100 for her but I am happy she went to a good home!

Very nice unit, Ray. I am glad you got it, even if you did have to get it shipped.

Nice find Ray. :thumbs:

Here is a picture of a Bolens at our county fair last year, guy had for sale, it had front blade too. You would probably know more from pic than I would

Do you still have this snowplow in original condition Ray?

Looks like there's a real good sample of paint near those adjusting holes.......
