8010 In the Cove

Lets start a new thread for these. A series of an 8010
cutting on SRS Ranches just east of The Dalles. In this
first shot, the combine has just left the truck landing
on top of the ridge and is spooling up getting ready
to drop back into the cut.

A left turn off of the ridge and the 8010 settles into the cut at the upper end of the cove.

Heading into the steepest part of this run, here the machine has hit
max on the leveler; as you can see the separator is slightly out of
level. The self leveling shoe helps keep the grain loss down in these
conditions.

Re: 8010 In the Cove

One of my favorite shots from last harvest. The machine is back in
level as the 8010 heads for the hardest part of this run. The plan
here is to hit the steepest part of the slope light.....but the wheat
is pouring into the tank pretty fast.

Getting to the really fun part. You can see the trucks waiting back
on top in the background.

Re: 8010 In the Cove

Heading back to the truck landing on the other side of the cove. Not as steep on this
side, so it makes a good return leg while the machine is heavy.

Re: 8010 In the Cove

Question - how did the 8010 handle the hills? Did you have to shift down at all?
Was this equipt with the auto header hight or did you have something else that enabled the head handle the hills??

Re: 8010 In the Cove

Great to see the pictures. We install the Hillco Hillside attachments here at our dealership in Grand Island when they come off the line at the combine plant. We do the installation on the 2300 series and the 8010s, so we probably did this machine last year. Thanks for posting!
