I have one of these and would like to know what it is worth.  I put it in my garage 20 years ago and it was running and has not been started since.  It has a working snow blower and plow, wheel weights and chains.

Hello Welcome to GTT

 

The tractor is a 1957 21HD-01 Super  Ride-a-Matic

 

The tractor itself looks in decent shape but not seeing the engine run, belt guide missing and rear hitch modified and foot pegs modified will hurt the value  to any collector and user of these

 

The attachments are also not period correct for the machine and may be best selling those separately to the guys who have the later 60's Ride-a-Matics , The wheel weights are either generic or from a different brand of tractor

 

Best thing to do is list "Make offer" and see what kind of market you have in your area

Welcome to GTtalk, yikes two what is it worth on the Bolens forum in the same day, I'm opting out on this one, you came to the right place, some of the guys on here are "definitely in the know" on these units

Welcome to GTtalk. 

 

If you were not so far down the road I would buy it off you.    Would you like to add the tractor to the Ride A Matic registry I have going?   I would need the tractor modal and serial number also the engine modal plus serial number.

Question I always wanted to ask: What's the difference between a Ride-A-Matic and a Super Ride-A-Matic?
