Thanks everyone one for the pics. What a great time it had to be, seeing all those tractors in the furrow. From the comments, it was a huge success. Thanks for sharing with the rest of us, everyone!

You did a very nice job on the Video, thanks. Felt like I was standing there in person.
Another thing that was noticed was I didn't see even one rock. Nice soil.

There were some rocks, but on the far end & lower side. We spent a lot of time as kids tossing rocks onto an old hay wagon. No telling how many tons we picked up.

there was rocks. I think it was Grumpy that hit one 8" or so. I it hit several that were 2 to 3" long, but they werent a problem. The only real problem all day was the wet grass that made the tires spin and plugged up the gauge wheels.

Great job on hosting a successful plow day Daniel. I know that planning something like that can be a huge burden. I talked to Drew on the phone yesterday and he really spoke highly of it. I wish I could have been able to make it, but I had 2 tractors sell last week and I had to deliver them this past weekend. My Simplicity and JD 430 are gone now, so I have to find something to plow with for next year.

Ill be looking forward to learning about next years big plow day event. From the sounds of it, you can plan on the attendance doubling!

Yes, it was the pin. I used a .250 bolt in with a lock nut. Thank for the help.
