when Denny F. mentioned that Cubs had an open differential, I had to look it up (seenin's how I'm not that mechanically inclined). It does sound like the problem is traction. You may want to consider chains if you have turf tires. www.houseofthud.com/differentials.htm
What was the distance of the furrow?? Man it seemed to be a mile long......
Sorry for holding up all you big horse power plow guys. Every time I looked back there were about three or four of you guys with the big 14's and higher back there grining at me. Hoping to have Stinky set up to plow by spring. I think the 17 horse/hydro combo will make a big difference.
Plowing in 3rd gear with the 1408PS I was about to run over Cody in the furrow & Tedd right after him...still need more HP though. . .maybe a V-twin Command 22 in a '82 series chassis, gear jammer of course!
You mean you didn't just pass????? The mighty 169 caught both a 1450 and a 782.....passed the 1450 (Doug) and caught the 782 (Bubba) before we ran out of field.....Doug said the plow looked like it was throwing a tidal wave of dirt across the previous 3 furrows!!!!
....I think that run really got the rings seated!!!!!!
I gotta agree with Steve, those 169's really rock! When Wyatt and I swapped, I couldn't believe the torque that thing had! Steve was able to keep up with the 1872 just fine as well, but then again he forgot that I was pullin' 2" more plow than he....

THANK TO TRAVIS & FAMILY
I had a great time at plow day 6 and can hardly waite until plow day 7.
5 hours drive one way, 500 miles round trip, tank of gas, but it was well worth it, I do it again in a heart beat.
Stinky is pulling stronger and stronger the more I run him and burn fresh gas with a little MMO. The fuel filter will be interesting to watch. Now to jack up the front end and drain out the 8+ year old Hy-tran and see what else is in there....
A guy named Leo bought the Lo-boy.
I will not pad my "britched" I just spent 6+ weeks de-padding them and the rest of my body.
