    Default Is there a glossary of terms?

    Being new to the tractor business I'm not completely up on all the terms I see used here.

    I've got some of them figured out like - ROPs - but some of the other stuff I've seen is kind of bewildering.

    CUT = Compact Utility Tractor????

    MMM ?????

    ....and all those other ABCs and XYZs you old hands commonly use here.

    If you all have already put something together for us newbs please direct me towards it.

    If not, would you give a dumb old country boy a short lesson in some of these terms, please?

    Thanks, hud
    What do you think?

    A lot of 'em are just shorthand invented here and on other sites. I don't think there is an industry standard. FEL -- front end loader. HST -- Hydrostatic Transmission R1 -- Agricultural type tires R4 -- Industrial look tires CNH -- Case/New Holland, once upon a time Ford

    Once you get the acronyms down pat, we'll teach you the secret handshakes.

    On a more serious note...read the safety forum on TBN.

    to the follow up question comming ... whast the diff between MFWD and 4x4...

    ive been told 4x4 both front and rear wheels turn at the same rate, ie they are the same size, so on (most) tractors were the front wheels are smaller, they have to turn faster to keep up with the rears, so the invention of MFWD
