Those are really great looking. How much pull capacity though? They wouldn't work in an old growth forest with hardwoods would they? How big is the real chains used to clear the trees? Don't they just push them down with the dozers? Obviously I don't know much about forestry clearing and equipment!!! Great models though. Felipe, how do you afford all these models? You must not be married!!!! Craig

Dear Craig, good morning!
I was a childrem when I saw it working in amazonia. In that time it was normal. They earn money pulling trees in that time. Usually they open a dense forest with these dozers. when they found a big tree one of dozer had to come back and pull it on floor. I was trying do the set I saw on past in scale, no much details about it.
I have a family. Many from my models was from a long time ago. On past the dollar price was low and I was a Vale engineer. I got many models in that time.
Now I'm a professor, and don't earn money enougth to buy much things. No chence spent money with models. So I have to do models as these dozer to exchange for model I want. . If I don't do models to change I will not have any new models on collection...

Felipe you need to take a trip to North Carolina, there is an older “gentleman” that has a tree in his back yard that has hundred dollar bills budding on it right now I’m sure he will open his golden gates and let you pick some some nice crisp $100’s. The reason he asks so many questions about land clearing is because when he was a wee lad he saw land clearing by way of dinosaurs 🦕.
Don’t ever sell that collection either, pass it down and keep it in the family. It’s a fabulous collection.

Steve, I love my collection. Every day when I'm in home and wake up I go to my office to see them. I've done and change many models along the years. I collect models near 40 years and now I have the cream of the cream.

However it spends a lot of my time and I'm tired to keep collecting. I'm not so young anymore. Is a question of time to let them go.

Felipe talk to Q he probably has 20 or 30 lowbeds under his bed that he has forgotten about, jog his memory for some reason he is very forgetful. Age? I think so.

Ok, let's move some shot rock!

What's more impressive, the originalmachine or the CCM model? I've started a scratchbuilt MENCK electric quarry shovel, one of the biggest shovels produced in Germany, electric driven. And now see, this LLIMA has the same size, but it's diesel powered.

Love the streamlined ECO bucket, we copied designs like that when our shovels had problems getting a full load in blasted rock. The bail is a nice feature, too, I always marveld about operators balancing a way too large boulder on the dipper. Here is anice article on the LIMA 2400: https://www.constructionequipment.com/diesel-powered-workhorse


Felipe, I start to wonder what you could do with a fleet like yours in real life. What about a hydroelectric plant? For each step you seem to have a machine in your collection - from land clearing to topsoil removal, to rock excavation and electric equipment installation.


Cheers,
Max
