My Tractor Hauling Trailer................My Luck.

Recommended Posts

I made a tow behind highway trailer to haul my tractors. It is a single axle version. Problem was that I made it a couple inches too narrow between the fenders as the decks would not fit. Well, yesterday I cut the feders narrower while they wer mounted on the trailer. Turned out fine-- got the couple extra inches. Cleaned up, got tools back, took another look and I noticed a dark smudge on the outbooard side of the right tire...........I cut the tire with the sawsall down to the cord. peeled open. Some of those little jobs turn into expensive ones.

I know a guy that bought a 1 year old car that hit a telephone pole and it fell on it, crushed the trunk, roof, hood, and front and rear glass. He bought it for next to nothing and was excited to fix it. Well he welded the new top on...he did not cover the seatssm00 That was the worst looking interior ever for a car with 25k on it. Yep, sometimes its worth the extra step...

        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
