    I am at the bottom of a hill with a gully running through my place. The yellow thing (above the truck's tailgate) on the far side of the water is my CAT excavator. White water, at the right, is going over my pond's spillway.

    I find this conflicting, as farmers always try dual tires and tracks to prevent compaction, yet folks roll weights on their lawns. Or are you just grading and packing the gravel? Totally confused!

    Rear Counter Weight

    I can only see one drawing with the fulcrum on the rear tires. Thanks for explaining there are two drawings! Bottom line the further from the fulcrum, the less weight it needed. It is all about CG, center of gravity. Couple of times in the past, when picking up complete trees, I felt my butt...

    Rear Counter Weight

    The OP was asking about counterweight on the rear for loads in the loader bucket. Your drawing shows the fulcrum on the rear axle. I was nicely trying to tell you your fulcrum is on the wrong axle for this discussion. I do know a thing about weight and balance. It was required in my work as...

    Yep, one thing I made sure of was enough propane for a weeks running time when I had mine installed. That equals to a 1000 gallon tank. It has powered the house 3 times since installation. It is really a good feeling until you think about refilling 1000 gallons of propane with winter rates...

    Rear Counter Weight

    If your drawing is correct, please tell me why my butt gets lite and my front tires go flat when I try to lift a too heavy load with the loader. The fulcrum would be on the front axle with a loader. hugs, Brandi

    Rear Counter Weight

    I am gonna guess about half the weight of what your loader is rated to lift. My loader is rated for 3900 pounds. My backhoe weighs around 1800 pounds and my 8 foot land plane with a 900 pound Red Oak cant on it weighs around 1700 pounds. Even these on occasion are still not enough to keep the...

    Bent SSQA plates/hands - what are my options?

    If this is true and you have worn linkages and/or bushings, moving the curl or dump without the attachment on could cause the linkages to bind and could throw the "hands" out of alignment. Maybe that is what is happening to all these wood block or tree fixes. Edit.................if you have...
