I've been looking for a wagon for a walk behind tractor for a while and finally located one. Fellow member bread320i helped out with it. He had posted something about one a few weeks back and we started talking about it. He also mentioned a 58 RAM he needed to move. Wasn't really in the market for one at the time but we struck a deal on the both of them. His wife and him were planning on making trip to MN to see family and they brought them long with them, which was awesome! I only had to drive a hour and a half to meet them, which also was nice to put a face with the name. Thanks again Adam and Michelle!

The tractor hasn't ran in a few years but I don't think it'll take to much to get it going again. It has the electric start option which is a plus so the kids should be able to start it easier once its running gain. It was painted years ago but the old paint wasn't remove first. Its on the list to get repainted that sweet metallic green one of these days.

The wagon also needed some work but at least the hard to find parts were all there. Need to fan up a seat bracket and do something with the floor in the box. Its all pitted up with few pin holes.

Congrats!

This must be the year of the 58' Ride-a-Matics, Seems like all of us have now found one this year :D

Does this one have the belt guard?

 

Great find on the wagon as well, the Ones with the seat are harder to find than the plain ones with just foot pegs.

No the guard was missing. I'll need to find one or make one. I think it still has the original tires one it. The rears are in great shape!

It has a K160 on it, is that correct for a 220-01?

Yes, should have the K160

The original brand of tires for both front and rear was Schenuit (Spelling???)

oops, just looked at the pics again, both fronts and rears are not original to that machine. Those rears were used on the next years Ride-a-matics (1959-1960) May have only been one of those years but cant remember off the top of my head

Those are getting hard to find!

They didn't use schenuits on the 58 ride-a-matic they used firestones originally an in 1959 those diamond turf tires came out but you could order them for the previous year states that in some of the literature

Good to know, the one I just picked up appears to have original tires on it though and they are Schenuit brand...

So were Firestone used on the front of the 58's as well?

That's honestly the first 58 I have ever seen with schenuits all I have ever had either firestones or Goodyears wonder now if maybe they had schenuits orginally then the firestones were replacements just a thought

Hard to say

You have many more years experience with these than I do, I just thought if they would use Firestone they would have on the fronts as well. This one came with Schenuits all around.

Now I'm going to have to search the internet for 1958 models to see what tires they have :D

I don't remember the seat as being removable, that is why I questioned the model of the cart.
