NICE! I assume they're using the hydraulics from the tractor to run the pistons?
Thanks for the additional posts Tony the extra pics are great and I will certainly keep an eye for any plans and updates you make to this thread.:trink40:The problem lies like this; When I build the scoops. # 1 say for the 300/140 series I would build 5 or 7 at a time Production. cut all the parts.Then fab; I could sell them That was when that was when that series was in use everywere; Then the same was with the 425/445/455 series. now I don't see it feesable To buy a newer tractor to build the scoop for. with that being said. maybe I can post some pictures, of the building process and the dimentions and mesurements,. At this time I am just a one man show and I do not write things down. I just build from what should work. EX. I in the past have used a 3" cyl; That would be changed to a 2" or 2 1/2" cyl. The 3" is over kill. Keep Updated I will post Some Plans And Pictures;; TONY.
Man that feat of lifting sure is a testament to the strength and quality of the scoops you built. :thThumbsUI have had several EMAILS. reguarding the lifting capacity, As you can see the tractor has weights, the tire are filled with fluid. I weight 220 lbs, Yet the wheels are about 6" off the ground. The front tires are pumped to 24lbs air pressure;; I did this for testing perposes only and would not reccomend anyone try to do it. If we say it can lift 750 lbs it can lift that with the propper weights, and is not to be thansported over rough terraine, as things will brake. Pictures for testing purpose only;;;; The 24" bar did not reach trough the tree It was over 80' tall; HA HA Life is good;;
