Saw a 60 advertised with a rare wide front end rolla matic. My question is, did the ever make such a thing? I've seen the wide front ends and the narrow, but never together.

You are correct. Wide front ends are not rare (seller hype). It is an either or, yet not both. Wide front ends do have the features of a roll a matic by the sense of the front end will contort to a change of elevation on the front end. All tractors do this with a wide front end. The true "roll-a-matic" front end just meant that it had a tricycle front end with dual tires and the ability of one tire to drop when the other tire rose over a stone.

Either the seller doesnt know what it is they have. Or like my tractor, when I first got it, it had a sticker on the dash saying roll-a-matic, with a wide front end.

So you need to ask them if they are selling the tractor with a wide front end (and a) roll-a-matic. Or is it just one front end only and a misprint.

I grew up around the 2 cylinders. The neighbors all had them and had never seen a rollamatic wide front.
Thanks
