806


Recommended Posts

Sadly we may never know what the question was or what happened to the author, quite possibly his 806 had a full rack of weights on it all it’s life. When he went out to start inspecting his steering problem he sat his coffee cup on the weights before he crawled underneath. That little bit of extra weight finally did the front axle in along with the author, but we may never know!

Posted this last year.  No injuries.  May have been stress cracked for a long long time before it let go.

Hobbyfarm, And your single post from above has stemmed about 1000 related replies sense! I know it’s the first thing I think of when anybody says anything about weights, front axles, or loaders.

Imagine if a guy bought a full set of weights and unloaded them out of his pick up with his frontend loader. Total disaster, quite possibly the only thing worse and more dangerous than a Sharknado.

Alas I have not removed them yet.  I thought about but haven't yet.  I'm 4 problems later same machine.  Starter, injection pump, brakes, and most recently major hydraulic leak.

Huh?   A full set of weights ain't even a full loader bucket of heavy wet manure.    The big 8' bucket on dads Westendorf, fully loaded, would nearly flatten the 11-15 front tires.

Someone in @hobbyfarm’s thread blamed the broken front axle on the fact that it had a few suitcase weights on it. I don’t recall who it was, but they said that weight should only be placed on the rear wheels, if anywhere at all. The discussion went on for several pages.
