Re: Crashed
Its made quite a mess of that. It shows why you should be careful when descending hills. Always keep the tractor in gear. Check the brakes are working, at the start of the descent.

Re: Crashed
People often make fun of me when i go slowly downhill with a full trailor...

Some over here drive 2 axle trailors downhill in neutral and they pick up speed very fast. If I show those people this photo, they would say that the driver was drunk...

Very dangerous going down a hill in "angel gear" anytime, let alone with a load on.

Re: Crashed
I think this is a McCormick... Could be MF, but it looks closer to McCormick to me...

One guy over here drove a combine downhill in neutral, something happenned in the gearbox, and grinded it to pieces... He, s lucky the wheels didn't lock, or he would be flying out of the cab directly in front of the combine...

You can see a picture of that combine in my history (ZMAJ 142)

Re: Crashed
The word you guys are looking for is "free-wheeling"
It can speed up to 100km/h+ easy in very short time then it starts to shake and the tractor goes crazy and...........BANG!!!!!!!!
You cant stop once it reaches around 80km/h it just skids along the road

Re: Crashed
A friend of mine in finland, went downhill with a Zetor 7745 and a trailer with no brakes, filled with 20 tons of gravel.
He ran downhill with 2 feet on the brakes but nothing helped. When braking didnt help and he released the clutch pedal in 4th gear, the engine over revved (he says 6000 rpm at way over 60 km/h) and the engine threw a connecting rod through the crankcase.


As a rule of thumb, you should never go downhill in a higher gear than the tractor could pull the same load uphill.... A turbo engine can allways make more pulling power than engine brake power, but the normal brakes are enough to keep everything under control.

Re: Crashed
Go dag', I have spent a bit of time in Dk, and noticed that just about every danish driver slips the car in to neutral when going down a hill or coming to a stop at an intersection. Are you guys taught this in your drivers education? I guess this guy did the same, just in the field instead. Its kinda crazy to do that dont you think? Just wondering the reasoning behind that. Tak for det, har det godt fra NZ
