Finally scored a weedcutter!

Recommended Posts

After years of searching and a few slip out of my grasp, I finally am the proud owner of a weedcutter! Found this one down near Mendon, Ohio, just under a 2 hour drive through the scenic Ohio countryside. This fella has quite a collection and it was a pleasure to spend time seeing it all and sharing some good stories!




I have the hitch, it was not installed for the ride home. The blades still have paint on them. Need a drive belt and a little TLC to the hitch and it should be set to go.

Around my area if I could find let alone for $250 it would be in the back of the truck before he could change his mind. Just can't find any. None on ebay nor using searchtempest.:(!

As the others have stated the prices range all over the place. If you want one, you have to determine what it is worth to you. Most prices I have seen run from $250 to $450. There are some higher and some lower. Some have even had them given to them! All I know is that after missing out on close to half a dozen over several years of looking, I decided I had to increase what I was willing to pay if I wanted one.

        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
