Tractor Talk Acronyms

Recommended Posts

Steve72
Is there anywhere on this site where a "newbie" can get a ref. for all the acronyms used? FDT and such...? I would like to become more familiar with the different models and attachments and I love reading ALL the posts but miss some things since I am not a "texter" or face book guy...LOL--laugh out loud??

I don't know of any clearing place on the site, someone else may know, but I have in the past done a search and found the answer to that exact question. For instance, fdt is a foot dragging tractor where as an rbt is a running board tractor.

We once had Roy on the boards. He passed away recently, god bless his soul. He referred to his wife as "OWHN". Now Roy was an amazing individual with nothing bad to say about anyone and an awesome sense of humor to boot. His widow, Fay, was and still is a good sport. Newbies would read Roy's posts and periodically chime in and say, "What's "OWHN"?" (myself included) Roy would answer in the nicest possible way, "Ole what's her name". We miss ol' Roy.

        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
