Seeding
Doing a little spring seeding with a JD 9400T & a Flexi-Coil
drill on SRS Ranches near The Dalles, Oregon. Here the
9400 works on a ridge just west of US 197. When this ridge
is done, the next move is down in the hole to seed the small
patches seen here, then on to the ridge to the east.

Re: Seeding
Sometimes getting there is half the fun. Heading down over
the goat trail to get to the patches in the bottom. ;-)
For a shot of this trail from the top, see post #107403
under Case harvesters from last summer.

Heading around this one "backwards" to avoid a nasty uphill
turn at the far end. ;-)

A look down on the outfit that shows the set up on the air
cart & drill. The axles have been extended for better
stability on the steep hillsides.:-D

Tight quarters over on this side. A little bit wet here
and the 9400 spun a bit making this turn. :-P

Re: Seeding
Finally!! Done with the small patches and back to something
that the 9400 fits in a little better. ;-) Working on the
next ridge to the east near US 197, the 9400T pulls up
a steep slope just above the hiway:-D

Re: Seeding
Hi john,
nice pictures again!:-) I was wondering if the seeder
doesn't slowly slides sidewards when driving on such steep
hills? If it does, isn't that bad for the tracks of the
tractor because they want to go straigt forward and the
tractor is pulled to the valley?

take care

Re: Seeding
Yo Niek: The hillsides do cause some problems, but don't
bother the belts on the 9400 too much.The belt wear that we
have had on the tractor has more to do with turning than
operating on steep slopes. We normally run couterclockwise;
the righthand belt has more wear due to all the lefthand
turns. We did have some trouble with the original spindles
on the air cart; they were too small & we broke the left one
twice ( again, from all the left turns) So, we installed
bigger spindles, and while we were at it we extended the
axles for more stability. As you can see, there still is a
little pressure when turning. ;-)

Re: Seeding
niek, ik heb in een andere post wel eens een plaatje gezien
van dat zaaimachien en daar hebben ze twee cilinders op
gemonteerd. tussen de tank en het zaaimachien in. wanneer
hij dan naar beneden glijd kunnen ze zo'n ciliner intrekken
waardoor het hele spul zich eigen weer omhoog trekt.

Re: Seeding
Like always very great pictures John thanks for sharing. But
you guys are case fans. at least with the combines so why do
you not have a case quadtrac? Are they not stable on the
hills because of the 4wd steering?

Hope to here from you

Good luck Joske
