First off I like to thank Brian/Bolens 1000 and Dave/Oldbuzzard for picking this stuff up, holding and transporting it.

 

 

Well the trip when mostly to plan we went by dave 1.5 hours and picked up another Ridemaster that makes 6 now... It came with a snow blade, 20'' disc plow I did not was there, some cultivators, 1 bottom plow, 3 parts engines, and a rebuilt engine.  There is some walk behind stuff in the mix aswell like a disc thats on the Ridemaster, and the front weight for a Bolens walk behind that is hard to find.  One thing I did learn from the tractor is it had Reel mowers at one point because there is some parts to one in the mix.

 

The next part was a tern back to stop at Daves and pick the stuff up he hauled back from Brian in NY for me. At Daves was set of reel mowers, a dump box, one front rim, another engine block, and some other smaller parts.   Dave was very nice to give me some books full of Bolens engineering notes that he picked up.

 

 

Heres the pics of the stuff and some of Cleveland when we went by it.

Glad to see the stuff made it safe and sound and you had a good trip  :D

Glad I could help you out, now we just need a video of when the reels are attached and working on the Ridemaster!

Those tires on the rear of that Ridemaster are Hideous!

Just noticed this, but looks like someone attached a walkbehind/Ride-a-Matic Disc set to the ridemaster :D
