Found this sickle bar, and asked for some pictures. This is what he sent. I was hoping that it was for a tube frame. But I'm thinking it's not. Can anyone help identify what this came off of?

This sickle bar fit all models of Bolens Ride-A-Matic tractors.

 

The sickle bar could be either a 36" or 44" cut.

Yes would love to have that on my RAM as well as a front cylinder mower too. Just wish we could come across that type of attachments over here.

Thanks , that's what I thought. Found it online way down in California. 200 bucks is a good price. Was hoping it would work on a tube frame.

Here is the numbers on the tag he says it in working order and just needs paint and a caution sticker.

Get it! If you don't have a tractor for it, at least you'd be saving it for one of these guys!  :D

When I saw the pictures I thought it looked like the sickle mower on my one RAM but while I'm a fan of Bolens, I don't have near the knowledge of many of the members. I rely on their helpful  knowledge to answer the many questions posted and I'm thankful for their help. I walked up to our pole barn and took a few pics of my mower to share.

Looks like the same one I have out back. I got it with 2 RAM's I bought last fall. I've yet been able to get near them to really look them over My leg is coming along well, and I hope to start next month working on stuff.

I've been trying to find one of those for my'61 RAM. If anyone has one they'd be willing to part with, let me know.
