Re: 8010 at Work
A little TLC in the morning before getting started...turns
out a hydraulic line that controls the reel height had a
hole
rubbed in it...a quick trip to town for some new hose & a
few
choice words for the location of the hose inside the main
tube on the back of the 2062 platform. :-(

A longer shot of the 8010 at work on the "80"....pulling up
a ridge on a beautiful morning to harvest...the Fax place is
at the eastern edge of Wasco Co.....this shot is looking
west across the wheat fields of the northern part of the
county towards Mt Hood. :-D

Re: 8010 at Work
A little further up the ridge....and the 8010 has hit the
max
limit on it's leveling system of 27%

Re: 8010 at Work
Working further up the ridge and now the leveler does not
have to work so hard. :-P

Re: 8010 at Work
Awesome pics again John

But why does this combine only reach a max of 27%, and the
1670 a max of 48%.
Does the 48% kit not fit on the 8010?

Keep up posting the great pics!

Re: 8010 at Work
Just a little later in the morning...I am finishing up the
"80" while the 8010 moves on to the next patch. I was able
to
take advantage of this high perch to get this birds eye shot
of the 8010. ;-)

Re: 8010 at Work
Yo Rony: The leveling systems are different...look under my
post of the 1670..there you will notice that the system on
the
1670 keeps the wheels (all four) parallel to the separator.
This allows the tires to get a better "bite" on the ground.
All true hillside combines were built this way until the
early
90's. Now, no factory machines are built that way in the US.
It's an expensive system to build.....so now the systems
offered by Hillco & RAHCO are a bolt on type....notice on
the
8010 that the wheels do NOT stay parallel....this simplifies
the linkage and keeps the costs down. I don't think that
there
will ever be a true "full level" system like on the 1670
built here again. :-(

The 8010 working in the early evening....in the background

Re: 8010 at Work
Done at the Fax place....so it's on to the Eggbert place.
Not as steep there....but it does have the "edge from hell"
as you can see here as we move out the gate on our way up.

Re: 8010 at Work
A shot out of my combine out over the edge .....that's the
Deschtes River.....and beyond the canyon is more wheat
country

Re: 8010 at Work
A lot of rafters out on the river this morning....checking
them out with 12X zoom. :-P Always like to work out on this
field ....some great views here!! ;-)

Re: 8010 at Work
Enough gawking at rafters having a nice, cooling drift down
the river, sucking down a few cold ones while we are stuck
up
here in a hot dusty wheat field....back to work. The 8010
working with the Deschutes River Canyon in the background.

Re: 8010 at Work
In addition to the river....there are some great views of
the
moumtains here as well. Here is the 8010 at work with Mt
Adams
(on the left) and Mt Rainier in the background. Both of
these
mountains are up in Washington state. :-)

Re: 8010 at Work
.....and cutting the same point in July with the 8010.
I didn't get exactly the same shot that I wanted...Dave
moves so @#%^**@ fast with the 8010 that I was out of
position. :-( But you get the idea
