    Crooked FEL?

    Okay. I'm not sure if this is anything to be concerned about but figured this would be a good place to pose the question. I've had my new 2016 1025R for a couple weeks now. Ever since the first day I've noticed when I lower the bucket to the ground the left side of the bucket always hits the ground first. Even when just looking straight on towards the tractor you can see the bucket is slightly crooked compared to the tractor itself. I've noticed it on my concrete driveway, and the concrete floors in my pole barn. The tire pressure is equal on both sides of the tractor. So is this normal? If so that's okay, it just kind of bugs my OCD. I'll post some pictures for you guys. Also, nothing seems to be wrong with the tractor or FEL.

    The first thing I would do is measure the actual inflated tire diameter of the rear tires,,,

    From what I can tell both look to be the same. Around 25.5" in diameter. Both are at 20psi.

    Install your bucket then measure.You can't measure the way you did because each ram moves independant from each other.

    Rim edge to ground is more reliable. Or measure circumference. All 4 tires. Rears are the biggest factor, but diagonal mismatches magnify it.

    Agree! That makes it simple and takes all tire variations out of the equation.

    Just compare the loader to the front frame of the tractor and you can see that it is crooked. Rear tires irrelevant.

    When I put the bucket on and then have the bucket about 3 inches off the floor there is a 3/8" difference between the right and left side of the bucket. Which matches up to the pictures I posted. Not even sure if it matters. When I lower the bucket to the floor everything evens out.

    What part of the arms and frame would I measure in order to check things out?

    Because of the pivot pin in frt axle frt tires &/or frt tire inflation have no bearing on levelness of frt end loader boom or attachments
