For my good friend Lorenzo in Italy :-D.....a good friend
& neighbor plowing with his D5B east of The Dalles, Oregon.
Re: D5B
A great ag tractor. :-D
Re: D5B
A really nice afternoon. If you look carefully you can see
Mt Adams in the background. :-D
Re: D5B
A little different angle.
Re: D5B
Time to hang it up for the day.....plowing his way back over
to his pickup. :-D
Re: D5B
Hi John, I haven't post anymore since a long time...I'm a
little busy on this period with the school, the motocross
and with other things...In this days we was doing some work
on the combine (belts, bearing and other stuff :-D ) . The
D5B still run but in this period we haven't work to do with
it so he's sleeping :-D Here is a photo of the last plowing
(I think in july or August)
Nice cab on that tractor, I like it, but I don't like the
palouse scoop (?) :-D Maybe it is useful but I think is
better without it...
You use to work on night? Here sometimes happen that we
still work on the field when is dark (see lights on the
tractor :-D )
Lorenzo (however I have saved all the photos you posted)
Re: D5B
Hey Lorenzo!! Yup, you are right, the "Palouse Scoop" IS
one of the ugliest things ever hung onto a Cat. But in the
dusty conditions we have here, they save a ton of money.
Without the scoop, the fan blades,belts and alternator take
a bunch of abuse. I have a scoop on my own D5, and after a
while, they kind of grow on ya. We used to do a lot of
plowing at night...we ran a D5B & a D6D 24 hrs a day. I
always ran the D6D at night...loved that tractor :-D We were
getting a little better than 100 acres a shift, so the
plowing went pretty fast. Here is another shot of my friend
Ed's D5 in action. All the best to you!!! ;-)
Re: D5B
Lorenzo; Here is an example. This D5 (98j) is pulling a rod
weeder working summer fallow. Notice how the tracks carry
the dirt forward; without the ughly scoop, the dirt is
flipped out right in front of the radiator to be sucked
right through. The scoop reduces this intake substantially
and make a dramatic redution in the wear to the radiator
core, belts and Alt. :-D
