    Default New linkage for 1450 loader

    I have pictures of my new loader linkage, which I like better than my original design

    Here is a picture of my first set( didn't like this design). They were to long and not enough curve at the lower half

    Moving the pins up 3" seemed to help some.
    I can now roll back a full bucket, which is more than I could do before.

    I now have more clearance to get full throw from my tilt cylinders than my original attempt..

    Great Vince! That sure looks like a nice job you did on that, and now you won't have to be so frustrated with roll back and dump. Thanks for posting the pics as I was wondering how that was going. John

    Vince, I was wondering if this helped the amount of curl, the power of the curl or both.
    It is interesting the the things you have done.

    Thanks, KO

    My roll back angle is the same.
    I lost a little bit of dump angle.( not enough to effect me)
    I seemed to have gained some curl power. Which is where I needed the gain.

    Kiohio,
    I could have easily made the linkage for more curl angle by just moving the very top pin back farther when making the linkage.
    But I would have lost a little more dump angle by doing so.
    So I tryed to maintain my original roll back angle and get a little more leverage for curl power.

    Does it still come far enough back that at full height and full dump it achieves enough that the edge is past the 90 degree point? At least an inch or so.
    As long as that is still achieved I wouldn't think anyone would have a problem with it.
    I was thinking your main goal was curl power.


    Thanks, KO

    I'll try to remember to check that out tomorrow evening to be sure and get back to you on that one.
