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?

English translation:MD > Mähdrescher = COMBINE HARVESTER
Explanation:
I'm almost certain it's Mähdrescher, which makes perfect sense, viz. the rape cutter and the combine (two attachment machines) having the same color

Mäherdeichsel


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)
