I got to thinking...yeah, I know...sometimes that's a dangerous thing :D

Anyway, I was noticing that the large frames like the 1886s and the HTs, don't seem to break a sweat. They just zip right along.

I was thinking that they just might be capable of pulling a 2-bottom plow. Has anyone experimented with something like that?

What do you guys think. Would the 18 HP and up large frames, properly ballasted and with decent tires, pull a 2-bottom?

A 2 bottom is probably a bit too much for the hydro.

In decent soil, they would pull 2 10" plows like butta!

Nah, those Hydros are STRONG.

Yeah, I wouldn't want to try 2 12s, but I think 2 10s would probably work.

Wonder how you would go about 'mating' 2 Brinly plows?

Olcowhand had a home made 2 bottom. I think he took it back apart but I am sure he has pictures somewhere.

edit: here is a picture i found of it.

Cool!

I found another one on a Cub Cadet site. It used 2 separate plows attached to an A-frame on a 3-pt. One was just the standard plow, and the other was shortened.

Scroll down a bit on this page to see it.

I think I like the looks of Olcowhand's better.

Although the 1886 could probably pull a 2 bottom plow I would not recommend it..... Just my opinion

Thanks for the compliment! I can't view the CC pics without registering. Pulling a 2 bottom is more a traction issue than HP. Soil type also makes a HUGE difference. I liked my 2 bottom, but it was so heavy to manage, plus I found out how it cut down badly on plowing time! I may make another 2-bottom or put this one back together once I get my diesel Bush Hog switched to a 2 speed hydro.

I figured that was the case. he guy was pulling it with a CC 1572 which has a 15Hp Kubota diesel, and weights around 975#.
TractorData.com Cub Cadet 1572 tractor information

The 1886-04 shipping weight is listed as 910#, so with fluids, it would e pretty much in the same range as the CC 1572.

Here's the pics from that page:

Looks like he has the bottoms a bit too close together. I'm thinking that they should be spread out a bit more.

my 1050 pulls my 10in brinly plow 6inchs and deeper in this sandy ground i got. anything deeper then 8 inchs makes her work a little to hard so i think the 1886 would pull 2 10s with no problem

I was at a little plow day this last fall just kinda north-west of Pittsburgh, can't think of the name of the hotel, well anyway there was a fella there with a 2 bottom behind a Deere that was decaled as a 430 or 440 (GT size). Don't know what was under the hood, never got to talk to the JD boys that day, but it pulled a two bottom easier than my 8N !!! I think my son might have a picture...

that gound looks heavy that cub must of been sweating a little with that 2 bottom. he had a good idea with that hitch. if he gets in some hard ground thats all you have to do is pull the pin an unhook the back plow but for show that little massy plow is better. i was at a show in kinzer pa "rough and tumble" thrashermans reunion and this guy made a scaled down oliver 1850 an he made a sem1 mounted 5 bottom plow with 8in botttoms an i forget what it had for a power plant but it pulled that nicely. there was alot of time into building that. it was a alsome set up i was blown away by the attention to detail.
