The basic function of a hood guard is to:
The hood guard:
Can be used with or without the tractor front weight bracket but not with the actual front weights while using the loader (this would overload the front axle)
For the 5M Series Tractors, the bottom bar must be removed for usage with front hitch for storage position of the center link.
It is highly recommended to purchase a front weight bracket when using a loader. The hood guard is designed to be slightly rearward of the front weight bracket. This is so the front weight bracket is the first point of contact against lower stationary objects.
If a front weight bracket is not used, the lower bar can be moved downward to improve the protection of the grille below the lights.
The features of the hood guard include:
Folds down to allow the hood to open and provide access to the battery and filter
Extra steel behind the mainframe to increase strength
High height to better protect the top of the hood
