One for the Bolens guys. If one of you guys want this pay for it and I'll pick it up and hold it till you can get it.

That's in great shape! I love the snap hitch decal on it. I just wish it was closer to me. Looks like its for a Power Ho.

Looks to be in good shape for its age!

Its for a power Ho, looks to be the smaller 26'' or 28'' Cut ( I cant remember exactly what width)

He's had that for sale in Cincinnati for at least 2 years. I spoke to him about it. He says it was on a ride a matic but can't remember how it was attached. He has the part number as 22447 but it doesn't seem correct

. He says it was on a ride a matic but can't remember how it was attached. He has the part number as 22447 but it doesn't seem correct

 

The Snap-Hitch was never intended for use on any model of Ride-A-Matic, and as far as I know, I don't believe it will even fit any R-A-M.

 

That being said, the Snap-Hitch is only attached to the reel unit with two cap screws.  .....The hitch plate could be switched to the later style to fit a VersaMatic.

 

However, the mower advertised is definitely NOT a #22447, regardless of what tag may be on it.  .....The #22447 was a 30" reel mower having 3 wood rollers, and a different style hitch mounting.  ....Also, the spring-loaded idler pulley assy is different than the one pictured.

 

The reel unit advertised could possibly be a #F401 or #15401 24" reel unit with the Snap-Hitch replacing the #1703498 Hitch plate used with 15F and VersaMatic tractors.

You are correct in saying the power-Ho snap hitch will not fit Ride-a-Matics, but I believe Bolens Referred to the Power-Ho, Versa-Matic & Ride-a-Matic Attachment  mounting system as the "Snap" Hitch which made for 2 variations of the hitch

 

If you look in the manuals the Ride-a-Matics are said to have "Patented snap hitch"

 

 

There was a trace of a decal like that on the Ride-a-Matic I have so I got one reproduced.
