German term or phrase:Forstplatte
Again, this is part of a tractor.
Einige Schmiernippel waren unerreichbar wegen Forstplatte - habe sie durch Winkel nippel ausgetauscht, bzw. neue Löcher in der Forstplatte gebohrt.
Part of this text was not very clear so it may well be that it doesn't read well but does anyone get the general idea?
Explanation: Forstplatte-the Forst-part in this case has nothing to do with forest, but with crop, harvest etc. , but on the other hand I found
it also as a means of protecting new forest growth:

But as you can see on the last page, it must be some sort of tractor
attachment and not an attachment as in page one to protect trees.

Explanation: Just going by the context, I would suggest 'skid plate' -- such a plate is often fitted below the engine of off-road vehicles to protect against branches, stones and (I suppose) small trees, and it could also be fitted to a tractor or a tractor accessory.
