I got my pictures posted without any comments. I just wanted you to see the Tr Family before some go their separate ways. Also before they get down and dirty in the wheat fields.
i will try more pictures later.
Here is a reply to the questions above. The TR97 is traded so it won't be on the farm too much longer. The tires are on backwards because it used to get wet in the fall. By having the tires on backwards you would "spin out" before you got into trouble. I also had a cable attached to this combine from the front axle hanging underneath the combine. I never had to use it. This combine did not have the reel hydralic option. The cost of putting it on was about 1200 bucks. I did not do it. It also needs the updated gear drive for the Bubbleup grain auger. Another 1200 bucks. Then you would be ready for some serious combining.
Thanks for the posts and take care. I will try to get some pictures of us harvesting in the next week to ten days.
The picture of the interior is that of the 1994 model TR97. I believe in keeping the plastic on the seats. The TR 98 still has the plastic on the seats to. The TR99 that we just got does not have the plastic on the seats,;Bummer. Maybe in the fields Monday on wheat. We do need rain for the corn, beans and other crops in the area.
