What do you think?

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about making a "brush guard" for my 4211. I think I could run 2 bars out of the front mounting brackets and then put 2 verticals and 2 cross pieces that would wrap around the sides of the grille. What do y'all think about that? Also, what color should it be painted? Orange? White? Black? I'm thinking black since the grill is black. But since it would be attached to the frame, it also could be orange. What shade of orange would match or be close? It wouldn't be permanently mounted, just bolted on where the holes are for the blade and snowthrower. I think this would be a good project. I'll keep y'all informed on how it goes.

I tried Plastikote's spraycan Chevy Engine Orange and found it too orange... I think the Duplicolor's Chevy Orange/Red is closer, but I haven't tried it. How about painting your brush guard "generic" black? I use my front counterweight sometimes, and I like the way it looks hanging off the front of a yellow tractor...

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
