I'm trying to convert a 3 point hitch mount Tedder to work when hitched to the front of a tractor. Of course, the problem is that tedders don't work in reverse, so I've been trying to figure out how to change its "front". I've swapped the work area nodes, but that only seems to work if I add "disableinreverse="false""( forgive me but I don't think that's the right wording, I had it the proper way in my xml) Anyway, that works ok, not perfectly, when I'm driving the tractor forward, but if I back up, it seems to "drag" the hay along with the tedder.

So, I think what I'm looking for is, how do you define which side is the "front" of a vehicle or implement, and therefore which direction is considered "forward"?

you coudl try the following:

every workArea can have the following attribute: disableBackwards

set that to false (<workArea ... disableBackwards="false" ... />) and try your luck again ;)
