Plowing
A Cat D5SA pulling 9 bottoms south of The Dalles, Oregon. A
once common scene in the Northwest, the numbers of Cats like
this one is falling. :-( A great ag tractor, this D5
dates from the late sixties and still has years of service
left in her! :-D

Cruising along the bottom of the ridge in 5th gear. ;-)

Diving of the top of the ridge on another round. In the
background Mt Hood looks down on the wheat fields of Wasco
Co. The wheat sure looks good now, but boy does it need a
rain. :-\

Turning. A good shot of the two JD plows in a tandem hitch.
Until the introduction of the "broken back" plows, the
tandem hitch was the only way to avoid "bridgeing" of the
plow on uneven ground.

Re: Plowing
Back on a fairly steep north slope starting another round.
The low center of gravity makes the D5 a very safe tractor
on the steep hills. :-D

Re: Plowing
Hi john.
Why were they plowing this piece of land. I remember you
told me once they weren't plowing anything anymore at the
SRS ranches because of the erosion.
Very nice pictures by the way, but we are used to see nice
pictures from you. :-)

Take care
Bart

Re: Plowing
Yo Bart! Well, I didn't make that very clear did I? :-[
The D5 in this thread is not plowing on SRS Ranches; it
belongs to one of our good neighbors. They are starting to
do some no-till as well, useing a D6C to pull their no till
drill. If you look at post#154015 above, you will see our
wheat right through the fence. It was seeded with the no
till last fall. In fact, I just happen to have a shot of the
drill going up that fence line. ;-)

Re: Plowing
Aha, sorry I thought it was on the SRS ranches.
I think the hitch on the drill to pull him up will really
come in handy on that slope ;-)
