Wake Up Call!
Easing into a draw and about to start a nasty pull, it's time to wake
up all of the 9400T's 425 horses. Seeding winter wheat near the
Deschutes River on Fred Fax Farms SE of The Dalles Oregon. The
Flexi-Coil 45 drill now sports a GPS auto section boom for the
fertilizer application....as far as we can tell, the first time that an
auto boom control has been applied on a drill. :-)

......and now those horses can catch a little nap time...way off on the
throttle here as the air cart & drill start to push the 9400T down hill.
More seeding at Fax Farms by SRS Ranches, seeding Tubbs winter
wheat. ;-)

Re: Wake Up Call!
Hey there jdeere!! Our winter wheat is all seeded from late September
through the end of October....all the pictures here so far are from mid
October 06. Here is a different angle of the ridge seen in the pictures
above. In this shot operator Dave Wilson is laying out the bottom run
on this slope. The second shot in the series above was taken later in
the day as he dropped into this big draw. :-)

Re: Wake Up Call!
Here Dave has hung a left and is starting to run the bottom of this
draw. The fertilizer boom is shut off & the drill is seeding at full rate.
The idea here is to add more seed to the bottom of the draw, where
the drill will "bridge" a little when the drill goes across in the regular
way. The thicker stand that results helps combat erosion, and the
bottoms of such draws always yield better. After the field is laid out
and all the draws are run, the drill passes right through so that the
bottom is double seeded. :-D

Welcome Cowboy!! Greetings to Tasmania!! :-D
A little different angle as Dave drops into a draw a little further down
the main ridge. Just ahead of him is some of the steepest ground
on the whole ranch....some of it comes close to the 48% level
limit of our 1670 combine. ;-)

The next day....the main ridge is done and the drill is moved over
on to the back ridge. A close look reveals the outboard valves (left &
right) that are used to supply the outboard sections of the auto boom
system for the fertilizer. ( the center section valves are hidden by the
air cart) Notice how the cart is falling off down the hill a little bit. The
drill is about to cross another draw that has been run out first. :-D

Across the draw and headed on around the field. A good look at the weight group on the 9400T.....weights on the nose and both track
frames. :-[ .....OK, on both BELT frames :-\ With a full load of fuel,
the all up weight is around 55,000lbs. All that weight really helps to get all of the 425HP to hook up to the ground.
