Just got this today. Up north just a bit. Came with the snow blade, cultivators and plow. Got it from the second owner. He got it in 69. Used it to plow snow in the blizzard of 78. Got it running. Just put gas in it and pulled a few times. Runs very well. Already tested out the plow. Has the removable weight and the akn Wisconsin.  Here are a few pictures. Parked it beside the old one. I didn't know that the front blade was aluminum.

Nice Find!

The front blades were only recommended for snow removal.

That's a nice looking tractor.  I love when we can preserve a nice looking original tractor.

Great find Bob.

That has to be the best looking un-restored Ridemaster that I've seen so far.
