Re: WNC - Grain harvest: JD 4400

Interesting. Never seen one with a chopper on it. Why is the tank so small? We have an old 4400 that has been sitting around for years. It's grain tank is up to the cab. Yours has bigger tires too.

Nice pictures - looks like pretty country around there. I've noticed on these and other pictures from that part of the country the farm equipment seems to get quite rusty. Do the winds carry salt inland off the ocean (or rains)? Probably a dumb question but I'm about 2,000 miles from the nearest coastline. Does a lot of this equipment sit out year 'round?

Our winds come from the mountain region. We are a good 6 hours away from the nearest beach. So only time we see beach wind is from Hurricanes.

The combines I show are still in their original coats. So I would expect to see some rust when they are hitting 40+ years old. All our combines are shedded, unless caught in a sudden storm or your roof is leaking.

Re: WNC - Grain harvest: JD 4400

Im running a 3300 here in California between young almond trees. Has a fresh engine that I turbocharged but I wish the cylinder was a little heavier. Im thinking of making a heavier cylinder for it next year.
