The Project is finished!

 

Hi to everyone.

 

The front end loader is finished.

Here are some pictures of the final result.

I am quite satisfied with the final result.

It has been a long, expensive and interesting building process. It has for me been a pleasure to describe the building of the front end loader and I want to say to all of you:

 

Thank you for all your interest with the building!

Thank you for all your nice and friendly comments!

Thank you for being patient if it took a little long time before an update.

Thank you for being patient with my sometimes bad English.

:thank_you: 

 

If I look back on my building there are 3 things, I should have done different:

 

  1. The cylinders have a 30 mm piston rod. This is not necessary. I should have used cylinders with 25 mm piston rods. (but maybe I will use some of them for a back hoe)
  2. The hydraulic oil pump is giving to much oil, when I run the engine at full rpm. I will mount a larger v-belt pulley on the hydraulic pump later.
  3. The cross over line for the hydraulic oil from one tower to the other has to be of a larger diameter. Now it is a 5/8” hose but I will make it at least ¾” (might not be necessary when the rpm of the oil pump will be reduced).

 

When I drive around on my tractor, I think the steering is a little too hard and that is even with an empty bucket. I will definitely mount a hydraulic steering.

 

My next projects will be:

Installing hydraulic steering.

Find and install a new muffler or make a vertical exhaust.

Building a micro back hoe. (if anyone have some drawings I am very interested)

 

I have made a little short video of my tractor with the front end loader and you will be able to see the monkey, who built the FEL.

 

Here is the video:

 

Enjoy it.

We should be thanking you Per! Great job and thanks for taking the time to document the build so we could follow along!

Good luck working the little kinks out! It sounds like you have a great plan and will get them resolved soon.

 

And let me add one more thing. :worshippy1: :worshippy1: :worshippy1: :worshippy1: :worshippy1: :worshippy1: :worshippy1: :worshippy1: :worshippy1: :D

Beautiful work, amazing fit and finish. As I said before, I hope mine doesn't turn out as pretty because I would not want to get the pretty thing dirty!!

 

But when you do... We want video!!

:ditto:   Exactly, thank YOU!  That outfit looks SO nice!  Glad I left mine in rough & "natural farm" appearance.  If I prettied mine up like yours, I'd not wanna get cow poo on it!
