That Ride a Matic is lovely and that patina is wonderful. The attachments are an additional bonus. Lovely.

well it all loks well and good, but I noticed there aint no pictures of these attachments, and if  'm going to pay that for a tractor there better be some pictures and the attachments better be mostly complete.

Its not what it seems, contacted the guy this morning and got pics of the attachments.

One is a common reel mower and the other is a sickle for a walkbehind tractor!

The front hitch to mount the mower is also missing and if its not with the tractor when you buy it you'll never find one separate!

Still waiting to hear back if he found the hitch but I doubt it.

The next time I sell a GT I'm gonna ask for 10 grand, minimum. I sold a hydro gt with electric lift and new tires, with 7 attachments, for that price. And I did a boatload of work to it, and countless hours re-doing every attachment. Here all I needed to do was repaint the grille. :wallbanging:  

 

 

Edit: I'm not done yet.

 

I bought a diesel SCUT for just a bit over that price, and it came with a mower deck, a snowblower, and a tiller that outweights that little thing.

 

Honestly, I started out on a tractor forum. Then I graduated to a garden tractor forum. Prices keep going like they are, I'll be on a push mower forum next.

see I knew there was a catch, that just dropped the value a bunch.

Nearly a day and a half now and no response after I asked about the hitch for the reel and told him the sickle was for a walkbehind.

Probably not as "Rare" as he thought! :D
