mcmanigal 455425 75 9760 Hillside either
9760 Hillside
How about a little hillside action with a Hillco equiped 9760 STS???
Here the 9760 is unloading into the grain cart before heading out
on another run up the ridge. :-D

That is impressive. What brand is it on the grain cart?

Re: 9760 Hillside
Back into the cut and headed out. ;-) The field being cut here is
one of the first that you run into as you go east out of The Dalles,
Oregon. In the background, Mt Hood peeks over a ridge. Also in the
background is the chem fallow that will be next summers wheat crop,
and some of the many sweet cherry orchards in The Dalles area.

Hey there Stark!!! The cart is a Unverferth. :-D The cart is new to
this ranch ( Kortge Wheat & Cattle) this year. I have some fun pictures
when they moved it down here to The Dalles last spring.

Turned around just past the top and now headed back. ( The camera,
Stark, is a Kodak P850, 5.1 Mega Pixels with a 12X zoom)

A little longer view to give an idea of the scale of this ridge that my
son in law is working on. On the left side of the frame is a cherry
orchard.

Re: 9760 Hillside
Coming to a small draw on the way back. The no till seeding now used by most growers here in the north end of Wasco County has eliminated the ditches from run off that used to plague draws such
as this. :-D

Re: 9760 Hillside
A nice tight head shot of the 9760. It's Hillco leveler keeps the machine level on slopes up to 27%. :-)

Re: 9760 Hillside
Nice photos John!

I specially love the second one.

Could you post some photos of the tractor pulling the grain cart?

Did you trade in the Case-IH combine?

Re: 9760 Hillside
Heading back to the cart.....a good view of the tire set up...diamond
treads all the way around ( they give better performance on the hills
than tractor lugs) with duals up front on the drivers. :-D

Re: 9760 Hillside
Pulling into the cart....at one of the few level places to unload in this
field. Can't unload on the go here.....and the cart driver has to have
his wits about him to avoid any problems with the cart. ;-)

Re: 9760 Hillside
Here ya go Tony. :-D My son in law teamed up with his cousin this
year. The 9760 Hillside seen in this thread belongs to my son in law,
as does the grain cart. The Quad Trac pulling the cart and a second
9760 combine ( a level land machine) belongs to his cousin. Couldn't
use the second machine here....too steep. They have them both going
now. :-P Here the Hillside machine unloads as Mt Hood looks on in the background.As for the red combines.....still have them at the
ranch that I work at.....posts of them coming soon!!! :-D

The 9760 heads off to tackle the ridge again as the Quad & Cart have
turned around and head down off the hill to the truck landing below.

Re: 9760 Hillside
Not a good place for a brake fizzle......nice & easy down off the hill.
Next time your cart drivers start to snivel about long hours, or the heat,
or whatever.....tell them that you are sending them out to Oregon for
' re-training' ;-)

Re: 9760 Hillside
Down on the flat....unloading the cart on to the KW, a harvest veteran
of several seasons at Kortge Wheat & Cattle. Along side, waiting it's
turn is a new addition for this year, a used "Pete". Both trucks are set
up with pup trailers. Parked this side of the "Pete" is the trap wagon...
fuel, oil, grease, air compressor,welder, spare parts and whatever else
you might need for harvest. :-D

Re: 9760 Hillside
A close up of the 9760 as it heads back up the ridge. The wheat being
cut here is Soft White, a class that mainly exported. The variety seen
here is called Gene....common head with no beards. The yield is also
good, considering the cold, dry spring that we had here in the Northwest.....this field went in the mid 70's.....not bad on about 12"
of rain since last fall. ;-)

Re: 9760 Hillside
Always cool pictures. Do you guys have to manually control the head as you go over those hills or does the head have header height like we do on corn heads here?

Take care,

Nathan
