If you think you can't plow with turfs n chains, Chuck and his Ford would prove you wrong, he made a good showing all day :thumbs: Even with a big "Meangreen" thump-thump-in his back door :wave:
SANY0098.JPG
More Green :smilewink:
SANY0099.JPG
This 318 pulled strong all day :rocker2:
SANY0100.JPG
This 140 was right in there too :rocker:

SANY0101.JPG
More brute force on the field by Deere :smiley-score010:

SANY0109.JPG
This one seems to sum it up :thumbs: (note there were Red tractors on the field too :D )
I'm sure I missed some folks, and duplicated some others, but without a doubt FUN was had by all :wave:

Thanks again to the fine folks that made this happen :worshippy1:

Wow, looks like several folks (including 2 more red cubs) showed up after I left at 3pm! That unplowed patch got a whole lot smaller in that last video.

That area was completely finished Bobby. Rick & his son rolled in with the Red Cubs around 4pm.

Thanks, I've always been impressed how well the ford pulls with just chains on it. Fred (meangreen) asked me at one point how the ford got so much traction.

Chuck let me plow with his Ford and it does indeed do a great job. His video showed some operator error when I reached the end of the furrow and pulled the wrong handle to raise the plow. OOPS.

We ended up with four Red 82 series Cubs, my 782 (as you see I broke the rock-shaft near the end of the day, had to manually pick up the plow the last several laps) Jess Laws with a 982 and then Rick and his son with 2 more 782's. Two Masseys in Red plowing (more red Masseys on display), the Wheel Horse, the Bush Hogs and the really sweet walk behind.
The "Ugly Sears" ? don't recall any red on it....hmmm and there was the Cub 149 in Y&W and Twosteps Kabota in Orange, Chucks Ford in Blue (did I miss anybody?) Seee it wasn't ALL green :rolling:
