How hard to find is a Ride-A-Matic mower deck?  I have a customer wanting to sell a Ride-A-Matic for $700 with a mower deck and a blade.  He claims it is in great original shape, and that the deck is worth that alone.  I blinked and mentally made a note to ask you Bolens professionals.

 

Is that a true statement?

. $700 is kind of crazy for a mower deck even for the tractor unless it's a early ride-a-matic

Guy is nuts if he thinks a deck is worth that much!

Have pictures?

I've been looking for a front mount deck for my Ride-a-Matic but not at that price :D

Bolens made a front deck that was a
Just a belly mower with wheels out front they are kind of scarce now these are not the same as the first front mowers I could see probably paying $200 for a good one of those but $700 for any mower deck is pretty crazy But if the tractor is a early ride-a-matic $700 is not out of line for the pair

No pictures, I haven't seen the tractor yet myself.  What's "nice and original" to a guy can scare me sometimes.  I've seen "original" resemble a pile of disintegrating parts.  "Unrestored condition" they say. 

 

I figured it wasn't worth what he thought.  It is a package deal, tractor, deck, and blade for $700.

. If it has the rounded grill then $700 for the package deal isn't out of line really blades worth about $100 by itself

He said it did.  I won't know until I see it.  It does have the Kohler in it that came with it.
