    Self Leveling FEL

    I have come up with another of hair-brained ideas. But I need to do some research. Do any of you know how the self leveling FELs work? Or could you point me in the direction of some information? Unfortunatly that option is not offered on my little 2000 series machines. And no, I am not looking to make my FEL self leveling, at least not yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Well, there are MANY ways to achieve Self Leveling...some better then others....

    Even just within the Deere brand for example, the loaders on the 4 series use a completly different method then the loaders on the 5 series.

    PERSONALLY Speaking, if I were to even try and attempt it, I'd probably use a system similar to the Deere 5xx and 6xx loaders:


    Seems simple & Elegant.
    PROBABLY would also just start from scratch designing my own loader.

    I agree with Dave that the 5 and 6000 series are a bit more simple, but they all are designed to do the same thing. I think its easier to build or modify something to make it like the 4000 series.

    True they "Do the same thing"....Just dont copy the geometry of the 4x series loaders.
    The 5/6 series and many other color loaders dont have the dump angle issues and binding issues associated with the 4x loader. I think the engineers were more concerned with styling when they did the 400cx.

    Great info, you guys have more than answered my question. I am not really interested in modifying my loader, just was wonder how the how principal was achieved. Had a goofy idea about self-leveling and the 3pt. Haven't convinced myself it is warrented though. Thanks a lot guys.

    Randy,
    For the most part it is a matter of utilizing parallel arms to control/maintain the angle just as is used on windshield wipers. I would think this would be the easy thing to copy.
    Steve,

    Enough attachments. Why don't I realize this?

    Thanks Steve, Yeah the geometry isn't that complicated once I started to think about it. I have since decided to hold off on this idea.
