Wanted to post here that I'm hosting a garden tractor plow day in July...

It will be in Erie Michigan, on July, 13, from 6 pm to 8:30pm, and 14th, from 8 am to 4 pm.

We'll have a over 50 acres to turn. It will be wheat stubble that will be bailed, or chopped before we plow it. Most of the ground is sandy, and is very easy plowing.

The field is about 3.5 miles off I-75, very easy to get to. The address across the street from the field is...
1605 Lakeside Rd,
Erie, MI 48133

The road is kind of weird, it has 4 different names depending on what cross road you are at...
Luna Pier Rd, Lakeside Rd, M-151, Samaria Rd...

It will be open to any make of garden tractor, I'm not going to open it up to big tractors because the field wouldn't take very long to finish with large equipment.

I'll rent a port a pot, and we'll have a couple of coolers of water. Everyone would be responsible for their own food.

Since this is my parent's property I'd like to have no alcohol.

I should have 2 of my latest and coolest "Little Tractors" there. An all wheel drive diesel IH 1206, and a turbo charged diesel IH 1066 pulling tractor replica.

Thanks, Kurt

Sounds like a good time and I hope you have a good turnout. Might want to also post it on the events calendar so it will also show up on the upcoming events sidebar on the forum index.

Hope you gets lots of participants, but not too many with just one "John"

Sounds like a great time and good soil to turn. Wish I were closer, you'd have 3 more.

Well 11 more days till plow day but whose counting LOL. Well Kurt is busy finishing up his latest master piece so I stopped by the plow field today and took some pictures. The wheat is off the field and ready to go.

For anyone that was there last year they also got the straw all off the field as well. So the issues we had last year with plugging up shouldn't happen this year.

I was waiting for some parts from the chrome shop for the Pro Stock mini tractor. So I started setting the field up.

The ground was quite hard, it made the 4x4 work... I built this plow this morning out of 2 6" David Bradley plows. It seemed to work well.

I don't think we'll have issues plugging up this year. We'll have problems getting the plows in the ground, and once their in, they are going to act like anchors.

This is something else that I'll have at the plow day. It has a turbo charged 3 cylinder Kubota diesel. She won't be plowing, but she'll be there...
