front weight

Recommended Posts

been out tilling the garden again. using the 9hp landlord. third time tilling the same area prior to planting the Fall garden. yeah, i know...a bit excessive but i like the seat time. because the ground is so loose, the tiller goes down until the top of the shield is level with the untilled part. this makes it real hard to pull the lever back to raise the tiller. almost like i didn't have a front weight on. (it's an original AC weight). am wondering if AC made more than one size front weight for the FDTs. dont think the donut weights will clear the front wheels if i put them on the ends of the weight also have a problem with the front lift rod jamming against the brake pedal. i have several lift rods, all with the exact same configuration. both the 9hp and the big ten have had the brake pedal bent, apparently to clear the rod. anyone else have this problem?

Gee whiz, thought one used the snow blower to work the fall gaarden.:D I do have the problem of the front rod lever binding on the clutch on the 725 if I til deeper then the last notch in the left lever, like off the quardant.

        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
