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 1991 Peterbilt 379 unloading into a pit. The
pit is emptied by a 10 inch Peck auger. A 1954 Super M
Farmall powers the auger. The corn goes into a wet holding
bin, which is then run through a continuous flow grain dryer
and into cooling bins. The dryer is run by a 1955 Farmall
400 LP. Which works nicely because we can run the dryer and
tractor off the same propane tank. And just in case
everyone is curious, this proves not everything we run is
green. :-)

Check out the rest of my pictures. Happy Harvesting and God
Bless.

Hello Doug,

Nice photos as always. Just how many tractors do you use
anyway? Thanks.

Re: Harvest 2002
Well, we have quite a collection and we do use most of them
at some point in time. Of course the powerhouses are the
larger ones, but between Dad, my brother and myself we also
have a bit of "old iron".
If you want to know all of them here they are: JD 4840, JD
4630, JD 4430, JD 4020, 52 JD A, 53 IH Super M, 54 IH Super
M, 49 IH M, 55 IH 400 LP, Massey Harris 44, 41 SC Case, 77
Oliver, 35 F-20 Farmall, 49 A-C WD. And we have several
more old iron models in Texas at my uncle's place. My
immedaiate family and I are Texas to Nebraska transplants.

Re: Harvest 2002
How many hours do all these tractors a year? Over here
(Belgium), I've never seen tractors of that age working on a
farm. Only a Ford Dexta or MF 135 used by an old farmer.Is
that a normal thing over there?

Re: Harvest 2002
Well the hours really vary. The IH Super M's and IH 400 had
about 600 hours put on each of them this year. That was
mainly due to having to irrigate alot this summer and we use
these tractors to pump water reuse pits. The Deere's get
used the most, for planting, cultivating, etc. These
tractors probably get about 400 hours or so a year.

Re: Harvest 2002
Doug a couple of questions about this pic. Your pit doesn't
have a roof over it, is it difficult to keep water out of
it, and keep everything lubed and running smoothly? The
small roof structure just to the left of the Farmall, what
is that protecting? By the looks of the ground underneath
the farmall, I am guessing it spends a lot of time running
that auger. Is the fuel tank just to the right of the
tractor plumbed directly to the tractor? I am originally
from west central Missouri, and we irrigate out of
ponds/lakes/resevoirs (depending on what part of the country
your from as to the proper term). We have a 2 cylinder
cummins deisel mounted to a frame that runs 24-7
transferring water from one of our larger lakes to one of
our smaller lakes, and we use a 300 gallon nurse tank
plumbed directly to the engine to avoid having to fuel it
every 10-12 hours. Looks like a similar set up.

I will be posting pics of Kansas wheat harvest this coming
June.

Keep the pics coming.

Thanks
