Hillside Barley
A Case IH 1470 hillside combine working in some spring
barley on a nice east slope. :-D
Re: Hillside Barley
Hey John, what state was that picture taken in? Always
wanted to see a hilside combine in action, looks like an old
IH unit 20 some odd years old?
Re: Hillside Barley
Hi, richard. John is from The Dalles, Oregon. If you want to
see some other hill-side combine go to my album. John, today
I've stucked my combine while harvesting trifoglio. the left
tyre is all under the ground and full of mud, infact the
combine hit the red light ;-). With my excavator and the D5
in 1st gear we pull it out of the wet spot. What about your
harvest? I'm plowing with D5, but in some field the soil is
very hard, because in spring we have to work for trifoglio,
and then we enter with tractors when the soil is wet. When I
go downhill with d5 I plow with 4th gear, but when go up the
hill I must work in 3rd or 2nd gear. You understand how my
land is....
Greetings from Italy
Re: Hillside Barley
Hi Lorenzo, what is trifoglio for a crop? Is it what we
called in the Netherlands "triticale" a cross-breeding
between rye and wheat? We grow only wheat at our company,
you can see pictures of it in the map "field-crops".

Greetings from the Netherlands!!
Re: Hillside Barley
Hey Lorenzo, sorry to hear about the combine fiasco
(problem), at least you were able to get it un-stuck. Most
of the cereals are comming off the fields right now, but it
has been relatively wet right now, well this summer in
general (southern Ontario), making things a little more
difficult, especially when you knock down hay just to watch
get rained all over. Oh well, such is the weather...
Re: Hillside Barley
Yo Richard! Yes, we are located in eastern Oregon, about
100 miles east of Portland. And yup, two of our machines
are over 20 years old (22 to be exact) The "baby" is the
1670, which is an 89 model. The neighbors think we are nuts
to cut 5000 acres with 3 old pelters....but we always seem
to get done. :-P
Re: Hillside Barley
A group photo.....waiting for the wheat to dry after a
rain delay. Front to back: Old Red (my machine) The
Hanger Queen (1670) and in the back (as always) Big Snort.
