For over 10 years the Ridemaster name was associated with a powerful and very versatile tractor.
It's sad for me to see the name reduced to a little lawn mower that is only fit for mowing small yards.

They certainly could have picked some other name for this mower.

I have to agree Ray. I think they could have used a different name for that little lawn tractor.

I think it's a cute little mower in it's own right .. it just isn't a "Ridemaster".

Someone else has a manual for one of these on ebay right now also so whoever gets it could get the manual too.
It's not often you find a match like that available at the same time.

Certainly is a weird looking thing. Very 1959. And NEVER should have been called a "Ridemaster".
