    Default Question about tiltmeters or inclinometers

    Hi,

    I am trying to find a tiltmeter/inclinometer for my John Deere 2210 tractor. R&B Manufacturing, Inc. ( http://www.tiltmeter.com/ ) looks like a very good possibility, especially their dual axis tiltmeters/inclinometers. When I called their place, they suggested that I order from the Tractor by Net online store ( http://store.tractorbynet.com/ ), since they said that the Tractor by Net online store offers a discount on R&B tiltmeters/inclinometers. However, when I look on the Tractor by Net online store and search for "tiltmeter", "tilt meter", or "inclinometer", I cannot find any products, nor when I click on the Safety section. I called the Tractor by Net store ( 1-888-545-6220 ) but was not able to reach anyone, although I was able to leave a voice mail.

    Does anyone here know if the Tractor by Net online store still sells tiltmeters/inclinometers and if so, on what page they are listed or how I can find them? Or do you know anywhere else that I can purchase tiltmeters/inclinometers online?

    Thank you so much for your time!

    Andrew

    In the tool bar you will find a clickable heading: STORE
    Just hit that .

    and welcome to TBN

    Sorry to be misleading. I know it was there but probably got lost during an update.
    I`ll report it.

    I just checked too, and I couldn't spot them. I did find the brand under Brands.
    Which is bigger?: a) $100 per month since the Big Bang or b) the US National Debt.

    Thanks for your time, and for the greetings! Yes, I'm able to get to the Tractor by Net online store, but I can't seem to find tiltmeters/inclinometers. I find a "Brands" page for R&B, but I don't see anything listed there; it looks like an empty page. Does anyone know where I can find them?

    Thanks!

    I couldn't find them listed in the TBN store either. I tried every option. I know that they used to be sold at a discount on the TBN store website. I don't have any idea what happened.

    I fail to see the point in them anyways other than for my curiosity.

    Find a 4x4, 4wd, Jeep type of store. Common accessory which can be attached via velcro, double-sided tape or some even have mounting holes for screws/pop rivets.

    Welcome Andrew. I have the dual axis R & B 25CDA model shown in this link. Boom Angle Indicators | Tilt Meter | The R&B Manufacturing, Inc.

    The side to side tiltmeter works great; but the fore-aft tiltmeter is worthless. Normal vibrations make the needle bounce around that it's unreadable. I ended up popping off the clear plastic lens, sealing the seams inside, drilled a 3/16" diameter fill hole on the top, reset the clear lens and sealed it, partially filled it with glycerin to quell the needle bounce, and then put a plastic plug in the fill hole. Doing this helped; but not enough to make the effort worthwhile.

    If you want dual-axis readings, get a couple of basic models and skip the dual-axis ones like I have.
