Yeoman's a little scarey

Recommended Posts

Hi, I was using the Yeoman to pull my trailer around today. It is the first time I've driven it much without the snow blower on it. It sure pulls the front wheels off the ground easy. Especially when you are turning when going up hill. I don't know that it would actually flip over, but after my wild ride on the 7116 last year this makes me a little nervous. I hope it is better with the deck on. Take care, John

Be careful pulling heavy loads with these tractors. They will flip over backward if the hitch pops off the ball. I flipped a tractor pulling a horse drawn type plow with a chain. After doing tractor pulling for over 15 years, I would not try to pull any type of heavy trailer up a hill, or in any type orough terrain without some type of "wheelie" bar or other safety mechanism to prevent flip over.

years ago I had a rj58 wheel horse,the 5hp engine sat between your legs,and she wuold ride wheelies at the drop of a hat.I thought that was fun,but as you get older you become wiser.I actually had 3 railroad track plates secured to the front to try to tame it down.They probably weighed @ 20# each.Even then it would have me looking at the sky.

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        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
