Nice sidehll machines, we have a 9510 sidehill and absolutely love it. are the 50 series factory or hillco, cuz it looks like they are 9650s which would mean they can't be factory?

Its been a LONG time since we had a nice day, so today cinco de Mayo we decided to have a bit of fun with our green toys.



#3 joining up







here is the herd >>8130 (ILS)(IVT) and our 'lead bull' (8530)


now getting down to bizness we hooked up our brand new 1590 it was making the shop smell!!! a good smell though



Our 1560 that we traded off had guiders on it, so this new one w/out looks kinda naked to me, oh well greenstar is our guiders now.


It made for a fun afternoon. enjoy!

Nice pics! It's neat to see combines set up like that. It'd be nice to run a sidehill combine in that terrain, just to see what it's like. It's alot different than what we're used to in North Dakota!

On JD sidehills, the tires are vertical, but on the Hillco conversions, the tires are perpendicular to the ground as the whole axle tilts. The diamond tread tires get better grip on extremely steep and soft ground.

Here in oregofornia the combine harvest weather is hot and dry. The only harvest that needs bar lugs is corn and late beans. Sometimes cauliflower and broccoli have a damp soil harvest too. But the combines roll from late june in crimson clover to late september in red clover. Rains dont usually start around here in any quantity till october.

Lots of valley grass machines run the skirt on the rear for wind/air reasons. Grass harvest with a tail wind dont go over too well.

Notice the loader tractor with floaters? Planter tractor.
