325mag: No kidding. A year ago at this time I thought
the crop was toast...we had like NO rain all winter....
everyone ( well almost everyone) in the county had
great stands...it was just going to be a crime to watch
it all go down the tube....we had wheat turning blue in
March (usually waits till May to do that).....then we got
some late rains that saved our bacon....guess ya just

Those photos are incredible. I'm sure you must be used to pictures like this, with the scenic backdrop, but for those of us from the "flat land", we are in awe.
Mx270a: Yup, we are pretty lucky....I have been around
here for harvest for a long time, but I never get tired
of the scenery; seems to be something different every
day. And very happy to share ....so if you want some more......from up on top with Mt Hood in the background.

This is what you want to look at for auto headerheight http://www.headsight.com/
We have it on 2 of our headers and the rest is getting them. You can mount up to 5 sensors on a header for a 2388. The bennefit of this system over a Case auto height and tilt is that on a case only the middle sensor is for height. On a headsight the middle sensor is for height only while the rest of the sensors does tilt and height meaning that the height of the header is an average of all 3 or 5 sensors.
With Case autoheight and tilt the header can drop and let the side hit the ground that never happens with headsight.
Price is about $2000 if I remember right
Thanks twinflow we have one neighbor that used that system last year. That looks like a simple system. I worry that we may damage a potentiometer in a short crop on rocky ground.The ones I have looked at are mounted right behind the guard.We should be able to work arond that somehow.
Gread pictures!! I have thouroghly (sp?) enjoyed this thread and all the pictures. Thanks 98j!
This question might sound dumb, but i am a flatlander, even in loose, ground terraces are almost unheard of, and my question is at what point do you have to worry about sliding down the hill?? the other question i have for you is if you see any agco (massey/gleaner) combines with hillco's of know if hillco even offers such a machine??
Keep the pictures coming!
