B-10 front counter weight

Recommended Posts

I looked at a B-10 today that had a front counter weight on it. I am trying to figure out if it is factory or something that someone has added. It is about 2 1/2" round solid stock. It has ears that attach were the mower deck would. Please if someone knows plase let me know. Thanks Steve Johnson

Steve, It was an AC dealer option. It was used to offset the weight of a heavy rear attachment, such as a tiller. See the picture & link below for more info. Glad to be able to help a little to repay (in small part) for all the info that you've shared with us, such as the recently added Early B-10 brochure...

        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
