Abstract:

This paper describes the development of a stability-indicating system for use in minimizing the occurrence of front-end loader FEL roll-overs in mining. The development proceeded in three phases definition of FEL stability-instability characteristics design of a 1st generation stability indicator and design of a simplified, 2nd generation stability indicator. 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.
