Pisto15 101330 85 3550AL either
This is my Laverda 3550AL. The man in the photo is Sergio,
my mechanic and he is examining the machine before i buy it.
He said it is a good machine. He works with this kind of
machine before the old Laverda 100 and 112. This is good
machine for hill-side farmers. It can level on slopes up to
Nice pic of rear levelling. We've got IH machines with
similar type levelling. Though the 4 way levelling was never
used on Axial flows. Nice feature compared to 2 way side
levelling. I don't know how Fiatagri locates the brakes on
the autoleveller, but IH put the final them on the final
drives by the drive wheels. Good safety point if a u-joint
ever broke there are still brakes on each wheel which isn't
the case when they're located on the transmission. I only
know of the rare 1950's age combines that broke u'joints.
Most combine wrecks seem to be from going uphill with too
much in the grain tank, not being able to hold the combine
on the hill while shifting and going down backwards.
Experience helps alot on how to attack certain bad hills.
I couldn't believe it when I was travelling through Italy
many years ago and saw land that looked just like the
Palouse of the Pacific Northwest USA. Even saw a John Deere
US hillside combine. Most were Laverdas. Many impressive
fortress towns on tops of hills there. Won't see that here.
I agree with you. Our land seems like the land in Oregon and
Washington. In this time here as you turn your head you see
a hill-side combine on the top of an hill combining. It's
very difficult to work with this combine on our slopes.
