[gdw]

[ FEW: 10,66b rapidus; Gdf: 6,545b rador; GdfC: ; TL: 8,156 rador; DEAF:  rade 1 (rador); DMF:  radeur; TLF: ; OED:  radeur n.; MED: ; DMLBS: ]
rador,  radur,  raidur,  reddour,  reddur  

Despite a different etymon and core sense, the word seem to have interchanged with reddur1 (from Latin rigidus: ‘stiff, rigid’). The two AND entries have been distinguished primarily on the basis of semantics rather than form.
