    M-Series Notes:

    Suffix "1” models are the second generation "Wide” Cab tractors. Cab is 5.7 inches wider than first models.
    Suffix "2” models are factory equipped with 540 / 1000 RPM PTO kits. M95S and M105S:
    The "S” represents the model/tractor class in general is no specific meaning, however it can be applied to "Swing Shift” as the base transmission on all "S” models.
    M50-Series 1983 - 1984 Cab was orange in color, air conditioning was optional.

    SCV = Selective Control Valve.

    In the railroad industry, a FRED is the F___ing Rear End Device that replaced the caboose.

    PTO- Power Take Off
    PHD- Post Hole Digger

    CUT- Compact Utility Tractor
    SCUT- Sub Compact Utility Tractor
    TLB- Tractor/Loader/Backhoe
    SS- Skid Steer
    QA- Quick Attach
    TnT or T&T- Top and Tilt
    SCV- Secondary Control Valve
    ULSD- Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel

    Just to be a pedantic pain in the a*** (a PITA), I'll point out that most of these are abbreviations not acronyms. An acronym is a single word made from the letters of a longer title. Such as LASER, RADAR, AIDS, or UNESCO.

    I'm often amused by local action groups or Government departments that think up a catchy acronym first, then torturously arrange the words to fit it. Conservation groups are chronic offenders. e.g. the biodiversity catchcry HIPPO for 'habitat destruction, invasive species, pollution, human overpopulation, and over-harvesting. (I kid you not). But then again, my own invention BADASS (the BAD Acronym Society) also fits that bill perfectly.

    Pedants of the world unite!!

    Being a foundation member of the society, I admit guilt and will proceed to flagellate myself severely.

    There are 10 types of people who understand binary, those who do and those who don't.

    Let us not forget the military HOTAS, an abbreviation for Hands On Throttle-And-Stick.
    I keep trying to bend some tractor words to come up with a similar acronym.
