My son in laws new 9760......at RDO Wasco this past May getting
the new engine crankshaft update. Alongside his machine, which is
equiped with a Hillco leveler, is another 9760 which is decked out
with a leveler from RAHCO.

the feeder house adapter, also from Hillco.

Here she is at work on some fairly nasty ground that is just east of
The Dalles, Oregon. OK, the light was crummy and I had to shoot this
right into the sun, but you get the idea. I rode around this patch on the first pass....the machine felt really stable. Seems to handle the downhill stuff well.....with no ballast in the rear tires.

By the time I got to the field on this evening, they were done with the
really steep stuff......I hope to get some better shots of this machine
working on some steep ground later in the season.

I love seeing how different areas adapt to their conditions. I think however you are welcome to those slopes and I will stay on the flat stuff.

OK, so I lied......well not really. Just didn't ever get the time to get
away from our own harvest to get some pictures of the 9760 in action
on something steep. But the son in laws' crew did get a few....here
it is in action over near the Deschutes River, cutting in a side canyon
that comes up out of the river.

Pulling up to the grain cart. Not too many places to dump on the go
in this field.

Very nice. Very scary also. In the 3rd picture, any picture of him going down that steep hill? That looks like an incredible steep hill.

Take care,

Nathan

I think your pictures should be required to have a disclosure of some type, something like this.

WARNING: DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS AT HOME. TRYING TO REPLICATE THESE MANUVERS WITHOUT PROPER TRAINING FROM TRAINED PROFESSIONALS CAN AND WILL RESULT IN LIFE THREATENING SITUATIONS!

Ha, Ha........ As usually great pictures. Very interesting stuff for a guy out here in the plains. Keep em comming.

though with all the dust coming off the combine....looks like it's in
some kind of storm.

Had a "dah" moment when I first looked at this one....thought the
9760 had some special lights on the grain tank extensions.

A nice tight shot of the 9760.....they had a great run with it and got
done before I could get back and get some more snaps.

The view from where they were cutting .....this place is practically
in The Dalles ( with all the problems that go with being too close)
This is The Dalles Dam on the Columbia River....I was drooling trying
to figure out a way to get the 9760 in frame with this in the background.......maybe next summer!
