The 2388 coming in to the landing to off load onto the
grain cart pulled by a Case IH QuadTrac. The wheat will then
be transfered to trucks for transport to a grain
elevator on the Columbia River in The Dalles. A late
afternoon shot....a great time to harvest & to take
pictures. ;-)
Re: All Red
hi john great picture as usual, is it neccesary to put over
400 horses before the grain cart. It doesn't look a big cart
to me or is it because of the steep hills.
Re: All Red
Hey there 8480!! Well, no, probably don't need 400 HP out
in front of the cart. But you sure do want some good brakes
and enough size to keep the cart from doing anything stupid.
Some guys are putting on Jake brakes (exhuast brakes) to
take the wear & tear out of the regular brakes.
This cart is not all that big....a little over 600 BU.Most
of the carts in this county are a little bigger at just
over 800BU. :-D
Re: All Red
8480: Here is where the cart really pays off; pulling the
wheat up off a fairly nasty patch to the truck landing up
on top of the ridge. Without the cart, the combine would
have to ferry the wheat out, which cuts way down on the time
in the cut.;-)
Re: All Red
hey john, tanks for the explanation. My thought's where just
right, it is because of the steep hills. But when i see
those really really big fields you have to drive like crazy
with that STX to be back at the time the combine is full.
Re: All Red
Hi, i have a question for you: do you have an autolivelling
in your case 's harvester? In which site i can see it? i do
this question because in Italy we haven't case's harvesters
with autolivelling!
Thank you so much,
