German term or phrase:MD (part of a tractor)
Einheitliche Lackierung von MD + Rapsschneidwerk.
This is a request from a farmer, suggesting how his tractor can be improved. Can anyone think what MD might stand for?
Explanation: this is a far-fetched guess. Since Rapsschneidewerk has to do with cutting 'raps' and seems to be an accessory to the tractor it usually has a hook-up mechanism (like a beam) called a "deichsel". The "Mäher"-part would refer to the cutting device itself. So the two make the "Mäherdeichsel" or MD.
(I wish I had a farmer-friend in Germany who I could call, to be sure)
