 I made the 368 mile round trip to get this Ride Master today. My day started at 4AM EST and ended at 4 PM all mountain roads. What can you guys tell me about it.

Engine Data is AKS ; serial # 1150823; code 57736

 

The tractor is type 35AA01

serial #  R    477

 

As anyone can see it has been rode hard and put away wet. I will be contacting a few of you guys for some parts. I am just now finishing up the mower deck for the 900 .After that I will have to build a few kitchen cabinets then maybe I can get into the Ride Master.

Nice find

Everything looks solid, the front and rear tires have been replaced and are not the right tread but you probably know that already. The good thing is the rims look original and appear to be in good shape, usually the rears have been swapped by trailer rims .

 

The attachments are a nice bonus too! Normally those are long gone and are usually harder to find than the tractors themselves.

 

Jerome will have more info for you when he sees this.

 

The engine is original as well

Looks like it's all there that's most important and if the tank is good then your all set. Just get some new tires blast and paint It's a low serial number makes it a 1949 Great score!

That one is in a whole lot better condition than the one listed on Cl in Des Moines, Iowa about a month ago. That is a very good looking machine and very doable project for sure.

Man a 35AA01 my dream RIdemaster I love to find one of those.

You have a great find there she looks in great shape.

Your missing the right throttle lever I think brian has them new. The correct air cleaner is missing and so is the muffler I know were you can get new mufflers I know some one making them.  The right air cleaner will be hard to find.   Those snow blades seem to always be beat up not very often you find one no missing chunks out of them.  You can buy new steering wheels for them also if yours is not in good shape.   Your front wheels are turned inside out the dish should be flipped.  You can still get new tires for these...   Your tractor has a August engine 1948 engine on it. 

 

Other then that in all you picked up a very nice 1948 I wold like to have my self.   

Side note yours has the 3 holes in the engine tin work for the light kit...   

 

Let me know if you need any info or help on anything.

Thanks for all the positive answers so far. Any help in finding the other half of the air cleaner would be a big help.

 I did not hear it run when I paid the man but now I can safely say that is does and it also drives F&B. It don't look like it ever got used very much and that it never sat outside. It and all the attachments were in a building where I picked it up.

Looks like a fine machine, congrats!

 

Always nice to hear them run. As Forrest Gump said, it's one less thing to worry about :D

 

Looking forward to seeing your plans come to fruition :thumbs:

Awesome find and someone took the time to disassemble it in the past to paint it red. Happy to hear that it run too.
