Felipe very nice looking, did you build that ROPS from scratch or buy it from an IH dealer.
Steve


IH dealer is slow Steve! So I decide do it by myself!

Sir, we got a high quality chaining alert!

Nice Felipe. I like what I see. Pulling trees with an anchor chain is one of my favourite equipment related topics. Are we going to see a highball, too?


Cheers,
Max

Felipe thanks for the response, you were better off building it yourself because you do a better job. Is the Fiat Allis an old model, I don’t think I have ever seen one of those. Is your root rake scratch built.

Dear Max, good yes!
This one will be a pair of last forestry I posted here.
Here in Brazil I usually see the chains alone. However, do a ball as option can be a good idea. Do you have pics about it?

Steve the root rake is an end kit.

Hi Felipe,

here is a nice overview: Operation Highball

Generally we are speaking about a stell ball of 2.5 to 3m in diameter. Its not solid, but fabricated out of 3/4" steel plate. There is an axle running through the steel ball, which shackles on each side. So the ball can roll freely without twisting the anchor chain. Weight is about 5 tonnes. When you are working on a slope,you can use a single tractor only, the ball then is running on the bottom edge of a slope, the tractor on top of it.

These highball are meant to keep pulling resistance of the ancor chain low and give you a higher point of attack on trees. They were quite popular in North and South America, not so much in Australia. There, they tend to break of a tree from its root stump instead of pulling the roots out together with the tree. Also, they are a hassle to move from one job to another.

Cheers
Max

Thank you very much Max! I don't know if I will be able to do it. The ball is simple to make, but i have just one chain. I'll try find another to do it.

I'm ending the model. i hope end it till the end of this week and send to paint. When already I will post pics here.

Felipe fantastic model that’s full of detail, that one most definitely belongs in your collection. Boy I never New the Chevy was that small, maybe The Q will send his Smart car car over to you for a size comparison it wouldn’t cost him more than $25.00 to send that bad boy that’s full of horses over.

Steve, it's an hard question.

The L1850 has all details possible! It's for sure one the best ever made. However the L2350 is a monster. The tire is fantastic! For me the L2350 is one of the best models in my collection!

Felipe spoken like a true collector, thanks for the response and both are top of the line pieces. I’m still trying to figure out a dio set up for the sheeps foot rollers, then it’s just a matter of finding the time to make it.
Thanks
Steve

The tires on the L 2350, man, they have a somewhat surreal look. What a battleship! The detailed look of the L 1850 is really crisp. I like this model alot. Now, what is really interesting - comparing both models/machines, they seem to be fitted with the same size of electric wheel motors.


Cheers,
Max
