I won Ridemaster number 4 yesterday along with the snowplow and the one bottom plow at an auction. The lift area of the tractor is missing some parts and has been reworked sometime over its life. Its also missing the air cleaner but I talk to the owner before me and he said leave a name and number and if he finds it he will let me know.  I am happy dad went pee behind of the barn or I would of not got the front lift and the rest of the plow he spoted well back there. I talk to the old guy who was the owner after I won the tractor about those parts and he said I better go get them when the auction was over for for nothing more!

 

I have another Ridemaster to pick up soon so I think I am going Ridemaster crazy. :D

That's a great score! It even has the key hole rims! So did you get it running or did it run when you bought it?

I would like to get one for a few hours just to drive it and see how it works.  That's a nice looking machine, Jerome.  How many Ridemasters are too many?

Looks like a nice one :thumbs:

 

I don't have any wish for one of those rascals, but I do like looking at them.

 

They have a sort of a prehistoric look to them  :D :D :D

That is a very nice looking tractor, Jerome.

It's really great that you were able to get the extra implements with it.
