  • Roll over
  • I see where we are discussing weight distribution and center of gravity. Does anybody know the tip over angle of an 8N, air tires, no weights, no equipment, wheels at 54".

  • Ferguson did roll over testing.85% of rollovers are to the side.

  • Re: Roll over
  • Well Bob, here's hoping you're not actually planning to go slope riding anytime soon, particularly w/o rollover protection, but even if you're on some moderate slopes, buy yourself a RUGGED RIDGE CLINOMETER (incline/grade meter), Rugged Ridge item # J11582 and mount it level on the N's hood. These are primarily sold for off road 4x4 vehicles, but they'll work on any vehicle, including tractors. Got one on one of my jeeps and the meter will indicate (before rollover) whether the vehicle is safe or not!

  • Re: Roll over
  • I looked at the Nebraska Tractor test paperwork I have and they don't mention lean angles. Thought I read somewhere that the 9N was 46-48 degrees depending on fuel and tire pressure? Best to wait and see what Dennis can find.

  • Re: Roll over
  • A fella (on www.ranchero.us forums) what does Crash testing, has tested these tractors...
    He gave the degrees of roll over Quite some time back...
    I`ll see IF I can find this info...
    My hooking to the plow to pull my engineless Ranchero is what brought up this subject ;)

    I`ll be back,

  • I quote > Hey, no sweat. Again, I just don't want to see someone get hurt. Thanks for understanding.

    We had a road at the FoMoCoTracto test track that started out level, but every 10 feet or so the banking would progressively increase 5°, up to around 45°, I think. We'd remotely drive tractors along that road, real slow, until they'd tip over, then record that angle. You'd be really surprised how stable they are going longitudinal on a hill. When you think you're about to roll one, odds are you've got another 5-10° before that actually happens (don't try this at home). Good times, like I said.

    I`ve ALSO got a private message to him asking this question of roll over...
    He is not available at present...
    BUT As promised, I return,

  • Re: Roll over
  • This is all I can get outta the "Test Dummy" as far as lean angles...
    AND we gotta remember, this guy ain`t no old codger like us, so this info is on newer tractors than ours

    Ain`t gpt no more,

  • Re: Roll over
  • As listed before, ALMOST word for word...
    Quote >>
    I worked at Ford Tractor for 6 years, and we did a few rollover tests; both on a gradient hill that started at 10 and went to 50, and pulling where you aren't supposed to pull (longitudinal flipping). What was the question?
    If it's when a tractor will roll, it really depends on the tractor, whether you have ballasted the tires, etc., but on a hill you'd be surprised how many will get to 45 without coming close to tipping. You'd fall out of the seat before the tractor starts to turn.
    As for pulling, if you hook to anything above the actually factory approved tow bar could cause the thing to flip. The tow bar is attached underneath the tractor in front of the rear wheel. Any point behind the wheel could upset the cart, so to speak.
