Can anyone help me out with pic's of a snowblower  hooked up? I want to make sure I have all the parts to get it hooked up. I am planning on getting it fired up this weekend if all goes well. Thanks

It's a 1961 Bolens Ride-a-matic and I haven't been able to find a plate with the model number on the blower. It does look to be an original attachment for the tractor                                                                         003.JPG                                                                                                                 004.JPG                                                                                                               It was purchased at the same time as the GT from the po.

There were 2 models of Snocasters which would attach to your 1961 Ride-A-Matic, which would be a model 233-01 or 234-01 tractor.

 

# 16505 Snocaster attachment required a separate # 22734 Hitch assy, but I'm fairly certain these units were painted green.

 

Your gold-colored attachment is most likely the #22513 (32") Snocaster which did not require a separate hitch.

 

There is currently not a manual for your attachment in the Manuals Forum.  ....Maybe someone can upload one?

I don't know if this is too late to help you, but I just uploaded 9 pages of info on the #22513 Sno-Caster attachment for your Ride-A-Matic.
