Taking a chance - I picked up a Bolens Ride-a-matic. Needs a lot of work.
Manual indicates 232-01. Internet suggests 1960.

This is my biggest project yet. A few changes over the years, but not too far from original.

Comes with a sickle bar (HD310 01) and plow (23219 01)

The motor is a K161 - appears to be original.
Includes the electric starter option.
All of the leavers appear to be moving easily.


Of course - here's some pics.

I found the ride-a-matic yesterday when I bought the moto-mower. All I saw was a steering wheel.


After about 30 mins, I took a break and snapped a picture. Took me about 2 more hours to get it out.
(Fellow gave me a deal because I'd had to work so hard.)

That is about as cool as they get. I'd love to have a sickle bar setup. I know a guy thats got a ton of them, but he's not big on sharing.
