Well as promised here are the pictures of my first ridemaster. Type NO. 35ab01 serial number 1246.   It came with a grader blade, plow, half a disk, and a full set of reel mowers. I have an extra tool bar Type NO. R40701 is this for the reel mowers?  Has one replaced rear rim. ( im gona put the right style rim back on) and the other rear rim is rusted out from calcium. It runs and drives great. It has a little gear noise (is this normal?). Other than that I haven't found anything wrong with it. How hard would it be to find the other part of the disk? Let me know what you think about it.

Very nice Ridemaster looks to be a 1948 or a early 1949 what are the engines model and serial numbers?

 

Your grader blade is home made.

From the looks of the one bottom plow its a early one.

 

Is that all that came with it? from the looks of it the tractor it had a front A frame and a sickel bar at one time.

 The reels are now one set of 5 I know of, 2 new sets tern up every year. The wide tool bar looks to be the 60'' tool bar for the reels and part of the reels is on it. The standerd 40" tool bar is on the tractor from the looks of it.

 

I sent you a email if you like better info..
