The picture of the 62 Ride-a-matic was taken by Sarah Floyd at a show in Toledo Washington in August of 08. It is Mt Rainier in the background. She has taken several pictures that have been in some of the tractor magazines.
Merry Christmas, Steve

I would really like to know if any one has any info on the Wizard Ride-a-matics. The guy in the pictures is my friend Dave whoe restored several of them for me and has several himself. The boy in the pictures is my tractor buddy Clifford.

That is a really nice collection you have there Steve. I really want my dad to get one of the Ride-a-Matics for his next one to add to his collection.

welcome to GTtalk. lots of great fokes on here. are you on the bolens forum on facebook? there is a steve johnson on there but he has a sears for there pic so io wasnt sure. anyway thanks for the pics they are very beautiful tractors. your friend did a beautiful job on the restorations. looks like the wizard tractors are the same as the bolens. i guess wizard contracted bolens to make them tractors? i know bolens made tractor for another comany as well. i think it was wards. thanks again great collection. cant wait to see more of your collection. an i bet that potato plow is rare. ive never seen one for a garden tractor. alsome attachment!!!!
