Re: 1670 Head Shot
Yo Matt! Do you mean to tell me that your bankout operator
would freak out if it got a little steep? This shot was
done last year over at my son in laws near the Deschutes.
Very nice to see pictures of your rice operation....
hope that you post some more soon. :-P
Re: 1670 Head Shot
The bankout wagon is really handy on this field. A lot of
operators out here are adding Jake brakes to their tractors
to help handle the loads when going down hill. ;-)
Re: 1670 Head Shot
John, what is Jake brake? Here in italy we use dump trailer
(often aluminium) with normal tractor from 100 to 200hp. My
father built a bankout wagon which can carry up to 8 tons of
wheat. When I harvest farro I use it with Fiat 780Dt or TNF
95 because the "farro" weights the half of wheat. Sometimes
I've pull it with D5 in the steepest points. How is the
capacity of your bankout wagons? This year how is the wheat
price in OR?
Re: 1670 Head Shot
I asked myself the same question after reading John´s post
so I looked it up on the internet.There is a company (Jacobs
Vehicle systems) which produces braking system and the most
common is a system where the exhaust valve is opened shortly
before the end of the engine´s compression stroke so the
engine compresses the air but due to the lack of pressure
the diesel does not ignite and leaves through the exhaust
system. The engine uses energy when compresing but does not
produce any afterwards.
Re: 1670 Head Shot
Hi Lorenzo! We do not use a bank out wagon on SRS Ranches;
there are times when we wish we had one. There are a few
places where it is hard to get a truck and a bank out wagon
would really be nice. Here is a shot of one that belongs
to a good friend of ours. He tows it with his Quad Trac; I
think it hauls about 800BU; so you can undrestand the need
for good control coming off the hills. This tractor is
Cummins powered, so adding the Jake brake was really easy.
The use of the exhaust brake (the jake) reduces the need
to use the tractor brakes a great deal. ;-)
Re: 1670 Head Shot
Another bank out wagon.....this one over at my son-in-laws.
This one is smaller as it is a gravity feed ( the blue one
above has an auger in the bottom) but it still packs out
600 bu at a whack. The price of wheat here sucks....
currently about $3.60 per bu. :-\
Re: 1670 Head Shot
In Italy the price is about 120€/Ton. This is similar to
your price. The farro (Spelt - Triticum dicoccum) cost
270€/T. The SRS ranches should try farro... it needs no
work, only soil preparation, drilling, combining. No
fertilizers, weed killer :-P ... ask them :-D
