Reversible stabilizer pads for my Ingersoll 6018 Backhoe
Posted October 16, 2011 - 03:49 PM
The main section the attaches to the stabilizer arm is all 5/16" angle iron 4"x2.5"x8".
I bent (2) 1/4" x5"x8"plates into a U for the pad assemblies. I then tacked one pad assembly to each side of the main section so i could drill 2 holes on each side to bolt them together. (2) 1/2" nuts are welded on the inside of each pad assembly to make the pad assemblies replaceable.
The rubber for the pads is an old loading dock bumper that was made from old tires. i ripped the pieces in half so i had 2" strips. 2 stips get notched for the nuts on the inside of the U. (4) 2" rubber strips get sandwiched In the pad assembly by 2 bolts running through the sides. the head of the bolt is tacked since i cant put a nut on the inside or it wont be able to flip over.
I made a short video to show it mounted on the machine. im happy with the way it turned out. now i just have to make the other side
