Did a little plowing today with the 27-44 Twin City tractor. The field has been in sod for about fifteen years and was plowing about eight inches deep. The tractor just turned 87 years old in May.

Neat.

I'm more impressed with the plows trailing properly with that hitch setup.

That's amazing! Friends of mine just bought a $150k Deeere to pull a 6 bottom with.
Although theirs may be a tad more comfortable to operate for 12 hours a day>;-)

Great photos and wished I had your soil on my place.

Nice, impressed with the trailing plow set up as well, must be harder to keep straight with the tractor on land.

That tractor was built back when horses(HP) was equal to Clydesdale's not like ponies as of today.

How does that type of traction wheel hold verse the spade type. Looks more comfortable to ride.

Great photos and great soil.

I imagine the twin trip ropes keep you on your toes at furrow end.

Mighty nice picture of some nice equipment working. If your tractor is a 27-44 I would think it means it has 27 horsepower on the draw bar and 44 horsepower on the belt pulley. That means it took 17 HP to turn the bull gears over. But the power to pull with comes from the ratio of the bull gears in the differential. Just my 2$ worth. Thanks again for your picts.

Great looking tractor.
The plow setup is slick too.
With my memory, I would have to color code the
trip ropes so I knew which one I was raising first!

Thanks for all the great comments. The tractor only moves along at 2 mph. The pyramid lugs are for hard surface ground or doing road work and are a lot easier on the back. After a day of pulling trip ropes and turning this beast around at the end of the field a newer tractor would have been nice. I like your idea of different colors for the trip ropes,thanks! Molines biggest rope trip plow was 5 bottoms so their idea was to use the pair of 3 bottoms. Here is a picture from a 1926 sales booklet that I was going by.

Thanks for sharing that pic.

I had always heard the old timers talk about those Twin Cities and their immense power back when I was a young'un 35 or so years ago. Seems like every TC I ever heard about always far exceeded the mfg ratings which is why they are legendary I guess. Never had the pleasure of running one though.

The plow set-up is impressive as well. My grandpa tried rigging 2 hydraulic tow plows (a JD 3 bottom and a JD 2 bottom) together back in the 1970's for use behind a Moline G705. His effort was much less successful and was soon abandoned.

Your tractor and plows are both very impressive. Thank you for keeping them in operating condition and thank you for sharing your pictures.

The drawbar setup between your plows is very interesting because at first glance it looks almost too simple to work but it obviously works very well - a very good design! Is if difficult to setup?
