Brian...Yeah I got pics...Just have'nt got them loaded yet.....WHERE WERE YOU!!!!!!!!!
YEA that was me on the Deere.....
I'm secure enough in my manhood to plow with another tractor.....I can't wait to get my Super done....power steering and more leg room is the way to go.....
Ya, I was ready to go but my friend emailed me on friday night to let me know he goofed on the dates for his wifes Graduation Party. Of course it had to be on Sunday so it kind of left me a obligated. I guess I'll have to wait for Steves get together to go plow.
Guys I may have just secured 24 acres to plow this spring for red neck plow day. Just down the road from Dons place. This will be a ONE time deal for these fields. The lease has run out and the land owner wants to put everything back in hay. For the last 10 yrs Ive lived here there has been Maters, Peppers, and Strawberries.
I would like to know the intrest of the people here that would likely to join us. These fields are bottom land and next to a nice creek. I need to know as Im starting to plan the plow day here in Jan.
Im going to try and work out that people that come will be able to camp on the grounds. There is one small packing house on the land we may be able to use. Ill try to snap some pics this week of the land for the people in the south east that may want to come.
Please if you would send me an email if you think you may want to attend. This will give me an idea in what to do. It would be in April or the first part of MAY. I will be attending the Plow day in Pa so it wont be that weekend.
If you want to look on Google earth. Look for the intersection of HWY 8 and Fox Squrell Ridge rd, 29671. its 1/4 mile up Fox Squrell rd on the left.
I held a plow day at my dads house yesterday. I got about a 1/4 acre plowed under. I found I needed weight to make the straight beam brinly work right. After I got the plow tuned decent and it pulled easily. I ran out of traction a few times. I need more land side wheel weights. I could only plow down hill. Trying to roll the ground uphill didn't work well, even with more weight on the plow.
Works a hellofalot better than it did a week ago. I'll check out the adjustments. I don't have a coulter on it ( didn't come with it) and I have the plow locked in place on the hitch with no swing. I haven't been to any plow days to have help from people who know what they are doing. They are just too far from me.
BTW the green tractors pull plows just as good as yeller ones...
Just Ask Jim Dimmerling and Robb Kreuger
I know the soil is different in diffent parts of the country but you should NOT have to put weight on the plow to get it to work. Get your plow adjusted correctly or better and it will go into the ground by itself. Then move that weight to your left side of the 140 and all will be fine.
Do just as Charlie said, get it adjusted, his FAQ is exactly correct!!! It doesn't matter what color the garden tractor is.
Although color change may also help...
