  89. Re: You need balast or you will trash your front axle!!!! really?

    Exactly my point, again, I'm attempting to help explain in yet another way that might help others understand. You are only addressing the second lever while others were trying to add the first lever...
  90. Re: Somewhat On-Topic - Vehicle (Tractor) Maintenance Apps

    This isn't for tractors, but it seems like you could customize it for whatever you need, or at least you could have it related (transmission vs. HST for example)....
  91. Re: You need balast or you will trash your front axle!!!! really?

    You actually have 2 levers in play here. The first is the FEL to the rear axle, with the fulcrum being the front axle. More load equals more lift on the rear axle, regardless of any counterweight....
  92. Re: You need balast or you will trash your front axle!!!! really?

    Exactly! The calculation is all about weight and leverage, doesn't matter if it is a tractor or seesaw. The fact that the vertical changes the horizontal on your tractor is merely an implementation...
  93. Re: You need balast or you will trash your front axle!!!! really?

    Yes it does, but to calculate the forces and leverage at a given static point, the vertical is not a factor. But how often are we in a static situation?

    In addition, the loader arms are almost parallel to the hood. That would put the load about 2 feet above the possible height he would have had to drag it off. And to catch the shot exactly as his...

    Re: Most Useful Minor Additions to Tractor

    The JD model 55 combine, and then the JD 6600 combine after that, both spun the steering wheel in a full revolution about every 5 minutes. A steering knob would have been totally useless.
    But on...
  97. Re: You need balast or you will trash your front axle!!!! really?

    I was attempting to bolster your statement by explaining the point in another way.
  98. Re: You need balast or you will trash your front axle!!!! really?

    I did, and have the same tractor as you. Without reading again, I'm fairly certain they never mentioned how weight was distributed when you mount the FEL. However,they did recommend ballast on the...
  99. Re: You need balast or you will trash your front axle!!!! really?

    Let's just ask this question. If I accept the premise that mounting in between the axles would load both the front and rear axles, then if I move the attachment point behind the rear axle, as is done...
