Steve, that looks great! Does a nice job on the garden too. Might have to add front assist to one of your Cubs as a next project so you can drop that fully into the ground. :)

It's a load for sure! First pass was set too deep.......probably 7"

Yes, Shanks pull hard.

The real one required 13 drawbar horsepower per shank.

Chisels are some of the hardest pulling implements.

As I suspected - Down right AWESOME!!!! Another project WELL DONE! Looks great behind the 982. You'll have a BLAST at the next plow day, just wish I was there to watch it work in person!
Very cool. Nice job.

Did pretty good all things considered! Did it load up with trash much on you? I bet it would be great in beans since the stalks would be chopped up nicely if the combine was set up right. Considering the ground is tacky looking, I think it did good.

Nice, well that's minor for sure. As long as you didn't need to go get a pry bar to start chipping it out and break a sweat doing it. Cause that just SUCKS when you plug up discs or cultivator. BTDT!
