Thank you :) . When I get the table that the valve gear ready, install the loader hydraulics. After that I get to test how the tractor and loader to behave terrain. I tested my tractor in the forest some time ago and I will continue the project forward.

Your fabrication techniques are very good Aviator. Soon you will be out in the log woods.

Thank you :) . As long as I control the loader hydraulics constructed, then is the time of the first tests. I await impatiently for the time this shell that I will get to test the tractor after a long construction project.

Forest tractor project will now move on their summer holidays. Still needs to be done, such as logs Changing hydraulic winch, tractor weights bow, seat, charger installation, electrification of the tractor, cabin interior design, painting, etc. .. So the story continues ... Thank you to all who have been interested in the progress of the project and the good / hot summer. :D

Summer break for the project is over. Forestry tractor is coming during the winter test period. Yet it has not been the actual forest runs, only twigs and transport of frames. The winter test phase must be very clear from the final structure and changes.
I begin in the coming days a new chain of tools and implements forum related to this project 2 phase. http://koneenkuvia.blogspot.com/

Hi,

How heavy is the biggest log your hydraulics can lift?

Great work - look forward to seeing it working :wink:

I do not have the crane operator's manual lifting force which could be read, and I have not yet brought the timber crane, so I do not know. But during the winter as long as I get to test the lifting and transporting of logs, both at the same time shows how powerful crane is.

You're doing a nice job. That should make it warmer and quieter.

Thank you :) . The interior of the material is RP-240 ABS- plastic. The same plastic is used in some John Deere forest machines in cabs. It's really a shock-resistant, even in the cold, so it takes a good use.
