Second Generation Front-end Loader Stability Indicator.
NTIS: PB/86-176419 :81 pages
This report describes the second stage in the development of a stability indicating system for use in minimizing the occurrence of front-end loader (fel) rollovers in mining. The overall development proceeded in three phases: definition of fel stability-instability characteristics; design of a first-generation stability indicator; and design of a simplified, second-generation stability indicator, which is covered by this report. Goals met by the final design include confirmation of a simplified methodology for detecting machine instability; the ability to be installed on new loaders during manufacture or on older loaders on a retrofit basis; and reliable, easily interpretable operation.
