Harvest 2002
Here are some of this year's harvest pictures from Eastern
Nebraska, USA in the Platte River Valley near Schuyler.

This is our 1978 John Deere 4840 with a Killbros 1400 grain
cart. So far we are about a third done with harvest and the
irrigated corn yields are around the 200+ bushel per acre

Check out the rest of my pictures. Happy Harvesting and God
Re: Harvest 2002
Dougie just wondering why you guys have all those lights on
the cab and didn't put them in the front like everybody else
did by knocking out the stripe. also it looks like you boys
couldn't decide on what type of 18.4 42's to run on the
Re: Harvest 2002

We have to be different somehow. The light bar was mine and
my dad's creation. It works. It was a little cheaper than
the knock out kits. Otherwisem not particular reason, just
a farm shop creation. On the tires, we normally runs
18.4R-42 Firestone 23 degree's, but we bought this tractor
in Iowa last winter and that is what it had on it. I
personally hate the Goodyears. They don't do as well in the
sand as the Firestones.
Re: Harvest 2002
I will definetly agree with you on Goodyear tires. They are
nothing compared to Firestones. Whether that be farm
applications or pickup. The best pickup tires we have ran
our firestone wilderness at. they can't be beat for 100
bucks each. we our curently running them on three pickups a
tahoe and surban. they will go 40k plus miles driving on 75
percent gravel
Re: Harvest 2002
G'Day Doug,
looking closely at your post I notice what appears to be a
train in the background , does your property run along side
the rail line? Looks kind of like the grain trains we get
here.Also that Tractor looks to have been well cared for.
Re: Harvest 2002
You are correct, that is a train in the background. One of
the main lines from Union Pacific runs about a half mile
north of our place. Alot of grain from the Midwest and coal
from Wyoming run through here and to the main yards in Omaha
and out to the eastern part of the US. Which amounts to
about a train every 15 minutes 24 hours a day.
Thanks, we do try and keep our machinery looking nice. We
keep it in shedded most of the year and winter gives us
plenty of time to wax and shine up a few things.:-)
Re: Harvest 2002
Hi Doug,

Must be cool to have all those trains coming through that
often. Anyway Gary is right, the tractor looks very well
taken care of. Looks like new almost.:-D
