If you thought your riding mower was fast, it's probably a slug compared with the Countax lawn tractor that's set a speed record of just over 87 mph. Countax is a British lawnmower manufacturer acquired by Ariens Co., of Brillion. Last weekend in the U.K., a Countax riding mower set a speed record of 87.33 mph, topping the record of 80.6 mph set by a Snapper mower in 2006 at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Snapper is owned by Briggs & Stratton Corp. Countax had hinted it was aiming for 100 mph. Perhaps that was wishful thinking, for the moment, according to Service Dealer magazine, which covers the outdoor power equipment industry. "Even so, seeing and hearing the low-slung tractor streaking across the sand in the high-80s was a highly impressive sight," Chris Biddle of Service Dealer wrote.

        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
