Kyocum inspired me today... To plow!

So I got out the Caterpillar today. I have two plows, one ready to go, and one that needed repair. So I grabbed the good one and went to work leveling.

I then tried in sod and determined the ground was too hard for only 60 pounds of weight per tire. Decided to work on the other plow instead.

Dad got home and said, try it in the garden, so I did, but forgot a semi staged pic of plowing. Here are after pics of what I plowed.

Anyone know how to keep the plow from flopping to the right without adjusting that bolt since plows are supposed to float some. I want to get rid of the beginning loss of plowing/ curve.

NIce job plowing Casey. Cool Caterpillar. Never had the pleasure to see one of them before. I keep the bolts on the sleeve hitch turned in far enough to allow the plow to float a couple inches in either direction.

Thanks guys. By the way Kyocum, the Caterpillar is not what it looks like, under all that yellow paint is a Craftsman GT18 lol. However, if I make it to Danville you will get to see the Caterpillar.

Also, I will adjust the bolts for only a couple inches. Thanks
