I was there a week ago looking for 12inch plow points and I seen a replacment 20inch disc that may fit the 20inch disc plows on the Ridemasters.

. Did I tell you that when I restored the two I have both them have J.I. Case stamped on the disc part so wouldn't surprise me if we couldn't find a replacement

No you never said anything to me, I bet alot back then were the same as the big tractors. I'll have to look and see what my two say.

I might have some of those duck feet shanks. Have to dig for them haven't seen them in a while, I think they were that style.

 

I know what you mean about being anxious to get your tractor home. August is a ways out yet, maybe something else will come up to take your mind off it.

That is an excellent ridemaster floating cultivator setup that Jerome put you onto.

It will look really nice on your tractor.

. It looks really cool when it's mounted on the tractor. The ridemaster it came on a friend of mine bought that the guy we got it from is convinced that the tractor was taken out the back door of the bolens factory This came from port washington Wisconsin He was telling us that a lot of stuff like that was happening around that area he had a lot of stories to tell us that's for sure There was several other brackets an pieces that we have no idea what they are for an they have bolens paint on them I'm speculating that maybe it's pieces to the sprayer attachment but I'm not convinced yet

You need to post some photos of the tractor when you get this mounted up.

Im anxious to see what it looks like all together.

Are the handles on this early Gardener like the ones on the DQ? I can't really tell from the pictures. It looks to have the cast rims.
