English translation:draw bar
Explanation:
The draw bar, or Zugpendel, is a heavy metal bar at the rear of the tractor to which various pieces of equipment or wagons can be attached. It has holes in it for such attachment. Certain other pieces of equipment don't attach to a tractor in this manner, and the draw bar would be in the way, therefore "es muss abgebaut werden." With other makes of tractors, "es kann zur Seite geklappt werden oder sogar vorwaerts geschoben werden."
