Yes, Don. I've noticed that they make better use of land levelers in Manitoba, and they also assemble their machinery more carefully --- not so crooked. ;

I came thru' the three hills area, about sept. 12,--13, everything shut down for rain.

That would be quite an extensive not to mention expensive project. As you may have noticed we're about 1/2 way between those extremes (it is called Three Hills after all). I'd take the flat stuff. Some say you get more land with the hills. Mathematically, yes and they can have it. Makes for fantastic pictures though.
I live on the NW side of the first hill. My mailing and phone # are Three Hills but the Ag dealers are in Trochu and I live 1/2 way between. Hence the location tag. Just in case any one was wondering, I'm sure you weren't.
And yes tell me about the rain delays. Just got rolling (if you want to call 5 km/hr with a 9860, 3 with 9070 rolling) on wheat yesterday and we got rain and snow pelleted out.
You see Combiness, I told you about Custom Harvesters and central Alberta (and north) harvest conditions.
You say you were through our area, hope you enjoyed the trip, where are you from?

Thanks

Don

Nice Photos, expecially the 2nd photo of the No.2 9860 picking up windrows everything in the photo just looks right. I dont know what it is but it seems in the US/Canada you get jibbed on the trailers you can put behind semi's- how many bushles fit in tri-axle trailer and the twin axle trailer, just to me it seem very little.

Thanks for the photos - enjoy the harvest

Cheers Camel
