    Default PUCKER FACTOR

    oh man ! the pucker factor went up by a multiple of 10 tonight. was moving some dirt, went into the pile as usual, got a good bucket full and lifted, the tractor started to lift on the off side, so i backed off and boy did it tilt more, had to dump the load and re do it, but damm did it give me a scare, always be careful!!! very strange , just goes to show that nothing is never normal

    From one pilot to another, don't you do an eyeball WB calculation before you lift?[img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img].

    And from yet another pilot to another pilot!

    Had a very similar experience last month with mine (Not the Airbus, but my B2910 !!).

    I think the pucker factor is one of the FINAL attention getters before things really get dicey!
