front end loader plans

Recommended Posts

I know guys have built parts of loaders, not sure if anyone has done one completely from scratch. there are probably some kind of plans somewhere on the net. As for using it mainly for snow, in plain english, loaders suck for snow removal in most cases. JMO.

I do not know anything about the plans you are talking about. I did design my own loader at one time. Never did build that one. Found a loader and bought it instead. Now, for snow usage. You would be much better off with a good spring-trip snow blade. I have a larger diesel loader with a 5 1/2 foot bucket, but I can clear snow much faster with my 48 inch blade on my AC716H. Remember that with a bucket you fill up the bucket, and then you have to dump it somewhere. That is a slow process with a lot of backing up and turning. A bucket is good for getting snow out of places where you can't get a blade, or for moving piles of snow from previous storms. They just are not as good for the normal plowing type jobs as a blade is.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
