I may not be needing them when I hear the price of them, BUT if anybody has a set please send me a quote
Also, Are the implements hard to find for a handiman. I mean like the plow, disc, harrow, cultivator. I imagine the rest get progressively hard to find.

I notice that the plows on many of the steel wheel tractors offer no adjustment, BUT Rubber tired garden tractors usually do have an adjustment, Is this a later development to make the buyer think he was getting something extra he wouldnt get in a steel wheeled garden tractor?

I got into a lengthy discussion once about plow adjustment on walk behind garden tractors. If its somewhat of a science to get one to plow deep without you necessarily having your hand on the handles, Then is the non adjustable ones preset to do that?

Its not a Handyman, but I have a Simplicity walk behind.

To do a good job, you need to crank the plow adjustment deeper when opeing up the field and then back off a bit after you get the first furrow, as the right side tire in the furrow alrady puts the tractor lower than on the first pass when there is no furrow.

Here's a plow off a Viking garden tractor I bought in 1960. When I sold the tractor I kept the plow and adapted it to my Wards tractor in 1971. Note the lever in the picture as that tilts the plow point. As t.r.k mentioned that's
what makes the plow to plow deep and if the tractor starts to spin you need to raise the plow point a notch. Hal
