Front weight

Recommended Posts

I think it depends on the tractor it is mounted to? Just raise the lift group and hold the wieght up and take a measurement. Should be pretty straight forward I think. If not I am sure someone has the measurement if you tell us the tractor you are mounting it to.

I know people have used chain or cable to lift the weight, plow, or snow blower. The key is the length, so mount the weight and decide on the position of the weight and measure it. The length is not real important. Just don't make it too long the weight touches the ground. Rick.......

Chain would be easy, since there is no need to apply downforce with a counter weight. Marine supply stores sell, nifty, tiny, stainless shackles for short money. With some tiny shackles and chain you can use "Mother's Wit" to quickly adjust the chain length to perfection by picking up more or less links with the shackle.

        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
