Maybe just to see how far you can fling the dirt with the plow.

The problem is the style of the bottom on the plow as some will just throw the dirt unless you dont care.Add on cover boards could help but you got to remember those old bottoms werent made for speed. I did plow onetime fall planted rye grass in the spring things were just rite had M with 3-14 and used 2-od Heisler 1/2 throttle could throw dirt pretty good at full throttle running 8in deep in good black ground.

I really don't see the point in it, other than its a good way to tear up your equipment. Something most of us would have gotten a boot in the backside for if our dad had ever caught us treating his stuff like that. My take on it is its kinda like Jacka$$ with tractors...

Around here it would just get you a lot of broken plow parts due to large rocks. I get enough broken parts with low speed plowing.

Speed plowing what's that? With a plow matched to a letter series tractor at a decent depth you are going to have a full load in 2nd gear, rarely in third.

I didn't know they did that here in the US... thought that was a Euopean thing. I can tell by some of the posts they do not know what you were alluding to with "speed plowing"... Google it or go to You Tube, there are some crazy videos on them. Big Fords (or NH) seem to be the big ticket on the ones I've seen.

I've seen a few of those youtube videos. What I don't understand is why anyone, in their right mind, would want to do it, but then, obviously those folks are NOT in their right mind.

Why would anyone want to do that? Why would anyone want to do ANY type of racing?

Is there any form of racing that you enjoy? Dirt oval? NASCAR? Drag racing? Motocross? Tour de France? New York Marathon? Snowmobile? Hill climb? TRACTOR PULLING?

Speed plowing is just another form of racing, and the reasons people do it are the same reasons as for any other type of racing.

1. For the thrill/rush/challenge.
2. Because you can.

It's not like they intend to plant crops after a speed plowing contest. They'll work the field over again with proper equipment first. Duh.

Build an 80 HP "pulling tractor", then pull a 2x14" plow in 5th gear Laughing

I always thought that plowing in 3rd gear wide open throttle with my Super M and 3-16's was pretty fast, but working at two jobs made it kinda necessary sometimes to "get 'er done". The old Super M had 4 1/8 bore sleeves and pistons and was well tuned and developed nearly 60 hp.

This speed plowing looks like something people with too much money and lotsa' time on their hands wouold do.
