Steve, I was joking about it being caused by me. I only plowed one or two rounds and that was early on, way before that got crooked. I more than likely have video proof. :D I had my Original out at a plow day a few miles North of my property, Osceola Plow Day put on by some of Art Aytay's students. That was around ten years ago already. I'm usually behind a camera not a steering wheel when at plow days.

It looks like someone may have been stopped and others drove around in this area. I'm going to have to dig out my video of this Spring Tillage Day and have a look to see if I captured anything from this area.

I'll have to go visit this field again, its been over 10 years, there might be lotsa weights growing lol
That property is less than 10 miles from my place and every time I go to my cabin I drive right past it. What does a suitcase weight plant look like?

I would expect that they would be green. Do they ripen yellow?

If you're just gonna lose them anyway, I would sure appreciate it if you sent some my way-some to use, or some to plant. Either way.

If the weights have a handle like the green one's in the pic above, why not use a small wratchet strap and tie them together?
At least if you lose them you will lose them all. I'll bet you could find them then! :errrr:
