The ground finally got dry enough for me to put the plow in the ground. So after work today i ran outside and put the plow on. This is the one that was originally a sleeve hitch, then converted to sears 3PTH, and finally last year I modded it to a true cat 0. This was its first run as a cat 0, and all my welds held up (so far). It took a few passes to get it dialed in and once it was set she would disappear in the ground. I told the wifey to grab the Camera and take some vid of it. There are a few good shots but she need to come on out and get some good vids up close. Well she is forgiven cause she was tending the kids so i could play. The soil has really improved even better than last year. I am now a firm believer in plowing under old crops and cover. That is cabbage that i am plowing under, it didnt do well at all. I was wanting to make some sauerkraut so I planted cabbage last September. I am finally getting one or two heads big enough to eat.
On a different note, if you listen carefully you can hear a "tink,tink" sound comeing from the transaxle of the tractor. I have no idea what it is but performance is not effected. The sound is more frequent in high gear than low and when It is under load you cant hear it. Thanks to Joes OPE I have all the gears to replace whatever i need to in the rearend. They arrived yesterday and i will get to it sometime.
On to the vid.

Thanks for the video! Loved the narration and the kids comments too...oh and I thought I saw some plowing going on in the background LOL! Looks like it's doing a great job. Tell the wife she did just fine!
