It was 78F down here in the south today. I finally got to use the 2 bottom plow that I picked up for $150. It's an IH and heavy.



Chickens are trying to help me...They are daredevils running in front of the wheels like they do.

Roosters after each other, worried somebody is gonna get layed (pun intended) more than the other...lol





I hit it with the plow for several times around and then put the 1 row cultivator on and went around and around...



Here is the plow. Hard to find one in good condition around here for a decent price. Seems everyone want $300 plus for a worn out piece of junk.

Now, I can ask a question!

How do I smooth off the plowed area after using the plow and cultivator?
Do I need to use some kind of a drag to pull behind, like a piece of chain link fence or something?

I have a middle buster to open the rows when it is smoothed off some. It's going to be about another month before actual planting begins so I need to get an idea now of how to do this.

Thanks, Gary

I AM envious. Nice find. What did you pull it with? I see the 8N's still got the blade on it. It's been raining here for at least 30 hours and 40 degrees, but we're so grateful for the moisture. We're even having some local flooding.
But our springs a coming..I think. Last year one of the locals planted his corn on the 15th of March (65 degrees) and was done by the 29th.
It froze off once when it was little, but still made a good crop. Everybody raised their eyebrows when he started but he had a leg up on the nasty summer heat and dry weather we had.

I'm an old Ford pu man but I'd trade one of my Fergies to pull that plow with for that neat old Chebby! Might even throw in a little cash!

I have a plow that looks just like that but it is a leinbach Line. We bought it new from a John Deere dealer about 4 years ago. We added the colters. Does a pretty good job of plowing once it is adjusted properly.

I've got one just like that. Think I paid about the same from TSC, new a few years back. Used it behind a Farmall 200. Without draft sensing rear hitch, it was a difficult tool to use. Finally put a guage wheel on the frame in front of and between the shares. That way, I could "float" the plow so it wasn't bobbing up and down with every uneven surface in the field. Have also had trouble with the top link frame shifting sideways. Someday, I'll figure out a reengineering for it. Think it needs to be more centered, where the top link attaches (left-right).

Turns out that the plow is not IH. Made by a small manufacturer in Ohio, Cleveland, I think. Someone on this board will probably be able to set me straight.

That'a a southern redneck job of plowing if I ever saw one. How much barley pop did it take to get it that way? Soooo, what are you going to do in July? Pray?

Thanks for the plow info guys. I always think IH when I see the International on something (and its red)...lol. This ground had not been plowed in 30 years so it definitely needs working up. I don't who the troll is with one post on here, but if you want to come down here and prove something you are welcome to do so. I do use the old ('52) 8 N for chores. I am just learning about this plowing stuff, so bare with me, glad to hear any suggestions or help ya'll got for me. Just thought somebody might like to see some pics on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Smile

Forgot to add that in July, it will be about 100F plus...sweating bad then.

Looks like you turned it over OK, those who can, do, those who
can't post under aliases! I plowed up our garden, and a coupla little
tater patches, today with the junk kubota, and a 1 bottom plow,
today.
Garden was too wet, by a day or 2, and the hilly ground where I
wanna plant potatoes is too much clay! Maybe some cow crap, and
compost will fix the clay, IDK, but gonna give her a whirl!
