The Starter Generator on my 7016 emits a high pitched screech when first turning on the key to start. I don't know if this is the belt slipping (it's new) or some other issue. It only lasts for an instant and everything else seems normal. The belt is tight. I thought the pros here probably have heard this before. Thanks

Rub some bar soap inside the belt.

I would think "a little dab'l do ya" for that approach, especially if it gets wet. The whole starter/generator thing is new to me and so much different than the gear starters I am used to. I do like it, though, now that I have it working  properly with a new regulator and correct wiring.

I think I am done with Spring projects until the next big wind storm. The tractors got a workout pulling roots, earthcavator leveling, tiller, tine dethatcher (works great for grass seeding prep) and hauling many loads of limbs and brush to the landfill. 4 big spruce trees went down in a big storm in late May.

here is my latest project - acquired yesterday from the recycle pile for free. I want to make it into a raft trailer for my zodiac-type boat.

I can't imagine that this would be an issue.  Just hold a bar of soap up to the belt while it is turning.  It adds a little stick-em to the belt and will reduce the squeal.  You're not using enough to make suds.  Or you could get a can of belt dressing ($10.00).  

I like your new project, though.  I always wanted and invisible boat.

In this hare-brained scheme, the trailer gets carried on the back of the other trailer in the pic and the boat gets carried uninflated in the tow vehicle pickup - to avoid doubling trailers. The boat trailer can be used to launch and store the boat at camp or independently.

        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
