    Backhoe outrigger sag

    Here is my fix for outrigger sag while sitting for extended time. The tag blocks the control to remind my dumb tail end to unlock the locks but it hinges up for operation... now I just have to remember to but the control block down when I am done using the backhoe

    That is nice! I made a low tech one a few months ago from stuff in the scrap bin. Had a short piece of 2" wide, maybe 3/16" in flat bar. Cut in in half and bent each just past 90° and bolted them on a piece of 1/4" rusty chain. They hook in the ends of the stabilizer arms. I didn't know how well it would work, but the sag in the chain provides enough force to keep the stabilizers from leaking down. They can easily be removed by hand without raising the stabilizers. This works, but yours look way nicer. Now I need an old bike inner tube or something to put over the chain.

    I also like your tag. I should do this, even if the chain is in plain sight.

    That's a great mod. I would buy that. Currently I am using a couple rubber bungee straps. Works fine, but looks sort of red neck.

    Mod to the mod, I didn’t trust the pin simply resting in the notch so I cut and created a “detent” in the notch to help hold the pin in the notch.

    Also while doing this mod, I drilled and tapped the outrigger pins and installed grease fittings. Now I can slow down some of the potential wear on those moving parts.
    On the ole innerweb I found rubber caps to keep the dirt out of the grease fittings and put them on every grease fitting on the machine.

    We looked at integrating a stop/latch into our #260 Backhoe Steps last year, but one picture I saw bothered the heck out of me so we abandoned the idea-it was a bent stabilizer on a new 260B backhoe.

    Thought that thru... took a year of thought before I moved forward. What I realized was if my bracket broke before any real damage was done it would be fine... manufacturing a new bracket or pin would be easier and cheaper than a new outrigger. The old joke about being faster than the bear made me realize this... I didn’t need to stop the outrigger from moving under power if accidentally used, just needed somewhere for the energy to go that would be the cheapest.
