Over in the UK we do come across the Ride A Matics but the early ones from the Late 50s are very rare. However, there was one spotted at a show in the UK last weekend with a cultivator attachment as well. Thought you lads might like to see some photos of it out of interest. I would love to have it myself.........

That super RAM is in what appears to be nice original condition I think they are one of the best looking garden tractors ever.

The garden tractor scene in the UK show circuit is no where as advanced as it is over in the States but I think it's steadily growing.
