big front wheels

Recommended Posts

Those front tires look like 21x11x8 tires. He may have just widened the front wheels to make those tires fit. The rear tires look like 23x10.5x12. They appear to be slightly larger in diameter but a little smaller in width.

Yes it is. And, the fronts are also backward, if you follow the manufacturer's suggestions for a "non-powered" wheel. If the fronts are installed like the rears on this one, the end of the lugs bite first, significantly improving the steering in loose dirt... It does look a bit weird to have the fronts and rears mounted differently, as you can see in this pic...

Just to get your gears turning...I know its the wrong color, but you have to appreciate the talent and skill to create something like this. Apparently the front axle is from a golf cart.

        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
