    790 telescoping stabilizers, 2.0

    A couple of years ago, I tried building a set of stabilizers, using the stock mounting points and holes. They were too short- not enough holes for satisfactory adjustment. Because of how short they were, there was also an extreme amount of leverage imposed on them. I wasn't satisfied, and I went back to turnbuckles.
    I hate them, of course. I finally took a day off from building, and tried again. I build a bracket for mounting on the lift arm shaft, and I welded tabs on the lift arms, to move the mounting point further back. This gave me plenty of length, but it also gets the mounting points close to the tires. I believe that they'll work fine, but they wouldn't if I had R4's or turfs.

    That looks like the stabilizer on the JD 4105,,

    I am amazed how I can set the 3 point arms to suit most anything,,,

    You know I like your stabilizers a ton, they are absolutely fantastic. Curious, why you welded them to the lower arms, instead of punching a 5/8" hole for a normal bolt through setup?
    Nice work on the 790. I remember you telling me about how you couldn't even make a set for your own machine.

    How many holes vs. spacing between each hole, do you find to be needed, for the strength needed to take the abuse they see? Any reason you couldn't do 3-4 holes with slightly more, or less spacing, to achieve the same outcome, without all the extra?

    I had committed to the alterations, so it was simply a decision to weld, instead of drill. I also wanted to keep the ball end as close to the arm as possible- the bolt and bracket frame would move the ball closer to the tire.

    I found that it is preferable for at least 7 holes in the rod, and 5 in the tube, considering the spacing I use for the holes. That means that the tube and rod can not be shorter than 8 1/2" inches, ideally. Because the holes in the rod are spaced differently than the holes in the tube, having less means that there are fewer options for adjustment. At what I've stated above, there is 1/8-3/16" of movement between alignment of holes. Less, and that increment grows.

    Right on, makes sense.

    I see you used square tube, are you building all of them of square tube now? What gauge square tube did use?

    No, in most cases, I still use rectangular tube and cold rolled flat plate. In this case, and when I build them for some JD tractors (because of interference issues with the tires) , I use square tube, because it is narrower. The tube is .250 wall, and the rod is 7/8" hot rolled square stock.

    This is a set I built yesterday, for a 3038e. With the R4's, the tires get awful close with an implement installed. Using the 1 1/2" tube gives a little more room.

    Was at the local dealer today, and they had a new 3046r on the lot.
    I don't know what models do, or do not get telescoping stabilizers from the factory, but this one had them, and with R4's to boot.
    It had a 60" Deere rotary cutter hooked up to it.
    Just thought I'd post a pic to show how close they are to the tires, and that it doesn't appear to leave much room too offset to the left or right. Neat none the less.
    Hodge my friend, yours still look better....
