I have seen several pictures of plows with depth wheels but have not been able to see the attachment style to the plow itself.

Could some of you post a few pictures from each side of the attachment method? Also what did you use for your wheel - seems like I've seen steel billets to lawnmower tires ...

Thanks!

Jesse, Are you referring to a Moldboard plow or a front push blade?

No time for any detailed explanation, but the pics show pretty much all you need.

Daniel looks like he has a good looking one there! His double also has a nice adjustable one on it.

I was going to take a pic of the one on my plow, but GTTinkerer beat me to it, I have the same plow. Lol.

Thanks for all the pictures guys!

Now do you set the depth wheel after setting up the plow traditionally or do you set it up in the field after your first few "digs" and adjust as needed?

I'm trying to get everything set up "online" before my 1st Plow Days @ Ball Hallow! Woot Woot

Daniel, that's a beauty of a plow setup. Looks like you are all set for fall plow day.

I have 4 of these plows now. I took the "twin 10's" apart as there was no need really to strain tractors, plus it cut down on seat time!
Got to make another 2 of these depth wheel assemblies so all 4 will be ready this fall to plow with. I want to have 4 of my tractors set up & ready.

Daniel, are you going to wow the crowd by running all 4 tractors simultaneously! I know you're good at multi tasking but that might be a stretch even for you! Seriously though, it sounds like you have preparations well under way for a great plow day.

No, not that talented! Actually, little preparations at all really. I need to get some plastic sign board, arrange for a porta potti, and figure out lunch. Of course all but the sign board will be done close to the day of plowing. I'll be a bag of nerves getting everything ready!
