B-1 or Big Ten???

Recommended Posts

Guest
I have 2 Big Ten tractors the question is, why does the model # on one say Big Ten and the other say B-1?

Ummm.. Silly question but how do you know they are both Big 10's? The one that says B-1 may be either an early B-10 (and the zero can't be read) or it may actually be a B-1. Just a question. Clayton

the one that says Big 10 on the name plate did not have a hood when I got it. But I have looked at both and there are no differences in them.

The entire front sheetmetal (including hood and dashboard), bulkhead and frame are different between the two tractors. The front axle might readily interchange, but that's about it. Compare the B-12 (same front sheetmetal as a Big Ten) with the B-1 below. I think someone may have switched out rear fenders/seat pans which brought along the ID plate with it... The rear sheetmetal might interchange, but I don't think anything on the front would. http://www.simpletractors.com/images/b-1/b1_cvr.jpg

        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
