System 7016???

Recommended Posts

I don't seem to find any specifications on the system 7016 Is there any difference between a System 7016 and a plain 7016???? And does anyone have any opinions on them....^

As Maynard stated, they are the same except for the subtle differences between MFG#. But that goes for all Simplicity products. The RBTs are the best and most refined of all the LFGTs. If the FDT crowd disagrees, it is just because they're jealous or don't know any better.

At the risk of starting another RBT FDT debate, I think they both have a valued place in my stable. With my belly grader blade the FDT makes more sense to me. (added foot pressure/control) When I am hopping off and on picking up debris and yard waste my FDT seems easier. But for mowing, snow removal the RBT is the right tool, in my opinion. The ability to move and change position is a plus.

All I'll say on the FDT issue is that if i wasn't able to drop my feet and stabilize a "tipsy" tractor, I'd have put mine on their side at least twice -- if not completely rolled... not counting the countless times that I've put my feet down and rocked them out of being stuck in snow, ice, loose dirt, mud, etc.... To each their own... BTW, I've got a pair of 7016 running boards I'd sell cheap, if anyone really wants them. You see, I part out RBTs to fix FDTs... :D
Maybe Kirk can empathize with me. I don't see a RBT in this picture, though I know he has one... [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/attach/thedaddycat/Dcp03197.jpg[/img]

      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
