In Reply to: Dirt Scoop - Which way should it face? Stabalizers? posted by Chad Stevens (FL) on May 07, 2020 at 13:07:45:
As stated, N's are pulling machines. The original Ford-Ferguson and Dearborn Dirt Scoops were designed to be pulled in the forward direction -see picture. It was the later FORD models that were designed to be reversible, made for the Hundred Series with more power. I highly recommend Stabilizer Bars. See our HOW-TO's for the correct way to install. You want the most ridged setup especially when using in reverse. Like a back blade. STAB BARS, aka anti-sway bars (NOT the same as the STAY BARS) help prevent the unit from kicking to one side under load. Best to get the A&O Manual from our Manuals library and read before using and doing damage -SEE LINK and find more.
