Those are some great looking machines :thumbs:

A guy had a rough looking one at a show I went to in the summer but he wanted $975
which was way to much

That price is high but it does have the rare snow blade and a set of wheel weights.

Glad you posted the pics wilberj. I would like to eventually have a Ridemaster. Actually I would like to see dad get a Ridemaster and a Ride a matic. I really like the pic of the loader hauling the sub assembly.

Would surely like to see all them tractors of yours in the registry :D

My 1952 Ridemaster has to be the best out of the 3 it starts on the first or second pull and runs like new.

I save it out of the local junkyard 2 years ago, with a little work I had it running with in 15 mins of getting it home.
I repainted the rims and put new tires up front. The 2 sets of wheel weights that came with it were also repainted but I have not put them back on yet.

I have 4 attachments a one-bottom plow, grader blade, disk, and cultivator.
