Don't know what took place and wasn't there , just a few thoughts .Along with sufficient ballast!
That is why I'm here on GTT. I have to wonder how those people manage to get through life.There was a little more detail in his TBN thread (along with way more people telling him this was all his fault and he would have been better off without the ROPS and seatbelt!).
True if rock slid in the scoop that would have helped with his rear tire hitting a soft spot. But if FEL is at hood level or above ,when the rock moved , hitting the soft spot, over it goes.There was a little more detail in his TBN thread (along with way more people telling him this was all his fault and he would have been better off without the ROPS and seatbelt!). He dropped a rear tire into a soft spot, possible while turning slowly. His rear ballast consisted of a big rock held in that scoop arrangement on the 3PH and might not have been as well restrained side to side as he thought. That really might be the whole deal right there. If the rut was just deep enough to get the rock in the scoop to slide to the low side, the impact of the rock hitting the edge of the scoop could have been enough to knock the opposite rear wheel off the ground. Once a rear wheel is up, the front end is just going to let you go right on over, especially if that ballast rock kept shifting to the low side.
Thing to focus on though? Use the ROPS and seatbelt as designed. Yes, even on a surface you think is flat.
SO true...I can only tolerate TBN in small doses. It just goes to show that any moron can buy a tractor and a computer. We buy green tractors and computers.That is why I'm here on GTT. I have to wonder how those people manage to get through life.
Thanks for the post Tnman. I'm sure ALL here on GTT recognize the full/real worth of a post such as this.
