Mounting a standard belt-driven pump isn't too hard.  Folks do it all the time.  Just wondering if any of you have looked into running your FEL with an electric pump?  Seems like it would make things a whole lot easier.  Is that an option or not?  Paul

I dont see why not..I have a couple of electric pumps off of trash compactors and such that should have no trouble with a small FEL.

Driving a pump by belt also requires a special engine pulley with the extra pulley right behind the PTO flanges. My 105 has that pulley but the 1053 does not.

The electric motors are not a continuous duty motor. They won't last long enoug to justify the install.

 

Take an electric motor designed to be on a garage door opener and put a fan blade on it then try to run it continuously and see how short the life span is.

A snow plow pump might work using the ports for the turn rams---but your charging system would never keep up with the current draw and they also are not made to run continuous.

But there might be something out there that would work--sorry I can't help,but I'am sure someone has done it.

No you dont run them continuous,they only engage when you activate them...be about the same as a log splitter,

They use these on dump beds for trucks, so must have the power!  Think speed would maybe be an issue?  They DO only run when you push the buttons, not continuious and would think NO down-pressure, just gravity to lower and dump then?  Not sure on the power requirements either, might need bigger battery or it's own even to keep load off the tractor system?  There's winches used on some home built loaders and johnny bucket type systems, usually manual dumps on those systems.

I would think a winch would use more current than one of those pumps..the ones I have have both up and down pressure by reversing as I recall.Like I said these were used on a compactor on a trash truck.
