    Default SEE/FLU419 accessories

    I am in the process of making a few doo-dads for my FLU and thought I would open it up to more people. I already sell the Cab tilt brackets through Expedition imports. Below are three additional ideas I would like to make. Not yet offering for sale, just getting feedback.

    A new power port/ Air buzzer bracket to allow mounting a 24V USB charger. Estimated $20 with the bracket and USB charger.

    New Headlight mounts to allow mounting the LED headlight buckets at the current 5" headlight location. Estimated $200/pair(you provide LED headlights)

    New Rubber gasket for the hydraulic handles through the back of the cab. 2 options here, either Thermoplastic Elastomer or Polyurethane. I have to complete the CAD model yet. Estimated $40 each.

    Telescopic hoist mount on the FOPS to allow lifting the cab, or Retrieving the spare tire if it is mounted on the FOPS. Estimated $300.
    Similar to, but more refined than this previous version I made:

    Loader Skid Steer adapter. Estimated $800 before shipping.

    Thoughts?

    I think the cab gasket would be quite popular. At least I have yet to get my butt in gear and make something myself.
    If it has built in rodent repellent, it'd be better yet.

    Agreed on the gasket. I would like to see the quick-attach also depending on the details. There are plenty of adapters out there that could be made to fit the FL-4 but a ready made unit would be worth $800+ to me depending....

    Cab gasket is our favorite, too.
    The hoist mount is a helpfull tool, I think.

    I have had some ideas for a retractable lifting hoist that attached to the drivers side ROPS upright for removing the tire and possibly the FOPS. The tire rig is easy but the moment arm for the FOPS means its got to be lot beefier. I expect I will just drive between two trees and rig up a crosspiece to lift the FOPS when I need to and then just leave it hanging it hanging.

    You can remove the FOPS canopy with the backhoe dipper as shown here.

    Gosh, yes--the cab gasket would be great!
    I have thought it would be nice to have a hoist that could be used to help lift those dang heavy tools from the boxes and then swing them all the way around the rig to the hose reel. That would be useful!
