    Yesterday, I picked up my 14th Ride a matic. A 1962, model 236 01, serial number 52959. It will run, but need help. Got a front plow and rear plow. It was a very cold day, 10 degrees and sunny. 3-1/2 hrs. Seemed like an eternity driving. Middle of nowhere in NYS. Got it loaded and headed home...

    Got a call this morn and was offered a parts tractor . It's a 57 , 21HD. Strictly a parts tractor. Only 90 minutes away, so the wife and I shot up there to see. Lots of good stuff on it. This makes 12 now, if I can count the parts tractors. I just wish I'd find the ones with tires!

    I also posted this on the other Bolens site. I was wondering if anyone has compiled a list as to what models were made in what years I know it separates by serial number also. I would like to have a list in my pocket so I could figure out what year some of the RAM's I look at are. It would help...

    I try to no longer buy copy's of tractors that I already have..... When you have over 85 bolens tractors you try to find stuff that you dont have to save room! I saw this little 59 pop up on craigslist and I knew I just had to buy it just for the attachments for my other Ride a matics so off...

    We ran in to Jody (brownboystoys) at the Bainbridge winter meet and greet and swap a couple weeks ago. He had a sickle bar mower for a Bolens Ride-a-Matic and we struck a deal with him but didn't have a way to haul it home at that time. We went over to his place the following weekend which was...
