Fooled by a seat...

Recommended Posts

You would think of all the things to stump one on a tractor, the last would be installing the seat. Well, it certainly has me confused. I took the seat off for easy access to an area I needed to work on. I started to try and put it on when I read the label on the back which pretty much said that it was a "saftey seat" and if it could not feel my butt in it, the PTO would not work. Well, I can't figure out how this thing bolts back on. There is the seat, this little bracket thing and a spring...anyone delt with these before?

A photo would help. Anyway, the spring probably raises the seat and releases (opens) the kill switch. When you sit on the seat, the spring compresses and pushes the switch closed again.

        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
