I have been kicking this around for a week or 2 just curious if there is intrest for a plow day up here in NE Iowa ... was thinking of Saturday October 31st ... I have around 20 acres give or take about 4 miles straight east of Postville Ia off of Hwy 18 is there any interest??? It would be a plow day only no food being served or door prizes , so you could bring your own cooler etc...


venders???


iIS THERE ANY INTEREST????????

Rick we have done the pot luck thing in the past ... nothing beats a good fresh burger after a hard morning of turning dirt. I will check with the father-in-law there is another 80 at least of bean stubble across the road that is already harvested. if we could dig that up for him that would give us plenty of ground.

The kid and myself are game. Is this the same field we plowed 2 years ago.20 acres will go down in 1 pass if all these plow boys show up that havn't had a chance to play.We could all run down to Gunder and eat a burger for lunch,drive our tractors down, that would kill some time. Bring your own grub, tractors and a lawn chair and let's play

the gunder burger place is 10 miles as the crow flies...but if you can eat the whole burger in one sitting , your a better man than me. The wife and I will share one with an order of fries and we can't kill the thing.

Mick

same field as 2 years ago ...let me work on getting a few more acres.

Halloween is no good for me. My little ones wouldn't stand for that.

I'll try to make it up Rob! Thanks for the invite! Weather has not been our friend this fall! If we miss out on this one, we'll only be plowing snow this year!

Rob, 148 might me a better desription on this one. It's a gear jammer.

I stopped by my favorite parts spot (MWSC) Wednesday and picked up some more super top secret parts for it! I'm anxious tear into the trans this winter.
It's getting a Dodge Dart carrier conversion and a gearing change. I'm putting a 15-17 gear set in. I'll be able to plow in 1,2,3 depending on conditions and the color of the tractor ahead of me. I didn't keep that secret long did I.

Eventually it will be a dual purpose plow / pull tractor.....hmmmm "The Montrose Special"

My 149 is equally ready to hit the dirt.

I like that 148 Rick, I have a 108 and a 149 that I was gonna do that to myself.

How much weight do you run on the front? I am going to build a front bumper with lead inside and wondering how heavy to make it.

Randy,
For plowing, the 82 lbs I've got on the front is more than enough. You could get by with 40-60. I don't run any on my 149 and its a bit "squirrely" in the front. I'm probably going to do like you and enclose the bottom of my weight bracket also so I can tose 3 lb lead ingots in there to dial it in for pulling.

Rob D. Any neighbors nearby that the guys could "sneak" into their bean fields and plow? Cornstalks may be a little too tough unless a couple of guys went ahead of the pack with the mower decks. (Remember Boone this spring?) I could put the 50" deck on the Keepsake 1650 for such a thing.

hopefully by then the father-in-law will have the corn out too. he usually chops the stalks right away also we possibly could turn some of those

Being we have recieved over 4" of rain since Wednesday up here in Northeast Iowa. I looked at the plow field last night, The field conditions are not good , we need a few days of sunshine , then things will be alot better. I will make a final decision no later than noon on Thursday if we are gonna plow or wait a week
