Honestly it is very difficult to say because of different treat pattern, but I think when smaller tractor tires will be awailable best solution will be with front double and rear single tires...

 

Very very impressive power functions collection ("Gentlemen, start your engines!" suits best to shown power functions diagram)

We used to run the drive tyres on them backwards. You got much better wear on the road transport sections between farms and if the field was a bit boggy and you got stuck, you could usually get your self out backwards. Mounting them correct way around means that when you get stuck, you really get stuck. They look good, but I think I prefer the power puller tyres.

This is really incredible scale model. I like the agricultural machinery and the lime Class color scheme is just amazing on this LEGO model.

I think the same. Changing the tires will be possible when the LEGO 81.6 produce tires with an agricultural tread

...and then I could make Arion 420 and lots of tractors within 100HP class so there will be something new for my collection. So far only realistic what I can make is Xerion 4160-4220 to fit my scale 1:15 for machinery equipment...but first I have to finish my Unomog U216...but this is another story...what is interesting - how do you implement all "factory on wheels" inside harvester, since we know that there are bunch of belts and cutters etc inside of every harvester. Really impressive

I know the problem. I want to build a 150 hp tractor in 1:17 scale, unfortunately, there is no suitable tires yet.

just hope for those tires in near future. for now I'll be concentrating on machinery that can be made with those truck like tirea and tires from Xerion. Baloon tires can pretend to be like tires on this telehandler

Problem with 1:17 scale is width - wheen you implement tripple link suspension like here

http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=6270642 it is OK, but If you want to make axle like on Axion or Independent like one on Deere 8R or Fendt Vario 8, 9 or 10 then first thing what comes in your mind is something like "Houston we have a problem". That is why I've decided to make 1:15 scale models. Harvesters usually have pendular rear axle, so there is no specific problem with this scale, but tractors are completely different thing...just look on JCB Fastrac with all that longitudinal arms steering will be like using sv joints and not universal joints...I know it is a bit offtopic but just sharing my 10 years experience with other respecterd eurobrickers...

:wink:

...just one small correction; I was thinking on JCB Fastrac 4160-4220, Threre is no CLAAS Xerion 4160-4220, but to me Fastrac looks like small Xerion

@Jim - some additional question - only finished models or WIP models are allowed and is it mandatory to make a video (due lack of time)?

Thanks 4 answer

WIP topics are fine. Video is not mandatory. Think of this forum as just a regular forum.
