Working Summerfallow
A Cat 26x D5B pulling a 42 foot springtooth working up some
summerfallow east of The Dalles, Oregon. Some nice rains
since this field was plowed back in April have put a solid
crust on top. This cultivator is making short work of that
crust and the crop of weeds that the rains have started.
:-D

Mt Hood looks down as the D5 makes another pass across the
field ;-)

That's an wunderful view up there.. But how do you take the
D5 on the roads? Do you take it on a trailer or just with
the tracks over the tarmac?

Re: Working Summerfallow
To comment on moving tracked tractors, we live in a similar
area to Oregon about 200 mile away. There used to be alot
of crawlers around here and many farmers had low trailers
that would tip for loading and unloading. The trailers had
alot of low wheels under the bed. Here's a pic of loading a
TD 14 onto one

h= (see driving up the trailer in middle row and 14 loaded
-row 3) Also many areas have gravel roads and only main
roads are paved and paved road are rare. Cats can be driven
down the road. Seems like many in drier areas farm large
acreages which are connected.
I sure would have liked to have that cab when I worked
summer fallow years ago. In our higher moisture area we
don't summer fallow anymore. I did kind of like riding out
in the air unless it was pretty hot like it can get along
the Columbia.

Here you go Michiel, I just happen to have a couple of shots
of my friends tilt trailer that he uses to move his
D5's ( he has two of them) He has hauled my 98J D5 several
times for me. This is a slick trailer that allows you to
load & unload almost anywhere. Hydraulics tilt the trailer
to the load position; as the tractor is loaded, it's weight
bring the trailer bed down to the transport position. :-D

A little closer look at the trailer; you can see the tilt
cylinder underneath the tilt portion of the trailer. ;-)
