I have one, but not yet.

This is a local property being cleaned up by a family. I may be able to catch them there on Sat morning.

It would've been buried here under that pile for at least a decade, maybe two.

That's what I was thinking... But I know little about Bolens RAM beyond what I've read or seen at shows.

Are there any salvageable parts I should look for?

Belt guards would be at the top of the list.

You guys are seeing something I don't see. But I never could "see" anything in those pictures they send around that are supposed to have all sorts of imaginable things in them.

I am truly amazed that you guys are able to identify anything from that. Best I had was... Lug tires... Haha.

That's all I saw, after looking for a minute, was lug tires. 6 x 12, just a guess. Noel.

I stared at the first pic a couple of minutes. 

Couldn't even find the tires!

Then when I blew up the second pic I immediately saw that hitch.....
