Hello GT people ,

I have just acquired a Bolens Ridemaster  and some of the implements , I do not know if it has the right or I should say the correct engine on this rascal . It has now a Wisconsin ACN  model on it and I have been told that this is not correct.  The tag on the tractor has on it  35AA01   R605    Also I would like to say Hello to everybody because I am a new member , I am going to need or possibly repair or replace the 2 front 16" wheels ( and I think we all know why )   and get the correct engine on this project , any and all help would really be appreciated . THANK YOU IN ADVANCE !

25AA01   R605   Tractor

WMO-ACN-124781 engine

Do you think it is possible to locate 2 front wheels or will I have to repair these 2 ?   Any suggestions ?

Your tractor would have left the factory with 18" front wheels. They are actually a 3" wide wheel with a 4:00-18 tire on it the correct engine would be a AKS What sort of attachments did you get with it?

Ditto^

 

Also your tractor is number 505 off the factory line.

Hello Guys ,

Gunstuff1000 and Wilberj  , Thank you for the replies guys , I do appreciate it   I will go back out and read the tire size again but why would somebody put 16,s on a 18" machine ? Also what were the 16" tires used for , OR I should say wheels used for . I have looked at several manuals and it seems none of them cover the AA series tractor , or all of them pretty much the same???

Yes this is my first ridemaster and it is in fairly good condition . Gunstuff1000  I got the plow the cultivator and the discs . I am putting this rascal together to run around at the shows next year, But I want to go over it first and some correct paint (another can of worms)

Wilberj  I was told to contact you sir from some pretty nice folks on e bay , Does anybody have any extra wheels ???  I believe these can be fixed but it's gonna take a lot of work , which is OK but if anybody wants to get rid of 2 I am open for business.  I think the ACN will run but I would like to replace with the proper engine ( open for business again)  Also Did all ridemasters come with 18" wheels?        Would it be possible that one of you guys give me a call for a few minutes or I will be happy to call you to gain some more knowledge about this machine

THANK GUYS
