Just couldn't help myself :D  Picked up this little "Ridemaster" today

 

The good: Machine is solid and mostly complete, been stored inside for the last 30 years.

 

The bad: No oil in the engine! :biting_nails:

Is this a showroom floor tractor that has never been started before?

Really neat machine.

Really neat machine.

 

Its been used but likely hasn't been ran in  40 years

 

Nice catch, is this the one that was on CL? It looks in good shape.

 

No, this one was never listed online

 

 

As usual Bolens made their mowers just as beefy as their GT's this one has the same style differential freewheel pin like the tubeframes just smaller scale. Manual says its weights 310 pounds!

Have to pull out the manual on this one its all new to me!

Some may say ugly but it just screams 50's when you look at in my opinion  :D

 

 

 

Now I just have to find the snow blade for it!

Wow that's either one Tiny Lady or it's Alot bigger than it looks in the Pics. 

 

Bottom crank seal might of fell out.Some of the old Lauson/Tecumseh engines would do that.
