I have clearing off a spot on the land up behind my house. It had a lot of grass , weeds and summack growing up in it. I cleared it off and plowed it this weekend. I pulled up a lot of roots while plowing. I am going to let it set for a while and get the roots cleaned out. Next spring I am going to plant some Raspberry plants there.
The 1650 did a pretty good job. It did get stopped and spin out when I hit a good sized root but most of the time I was able to back up and get a bit of a run at it and get the root pulled out.

Mike, just looking at pics again of plowing. Man you're running her deep with that 12"er! Just shows what a Massey can do! Also, just for point of information, you only need the coulter to run like 1" or so into the soil. It's not to split the soil, but to cut trash & the like on top of the ground.

I did sink the plow about as deep as I could.I wanted to snag all the roots I could to keep the summack from coming back so fast. It spreads by runners from existing ones. I was plowing around 6 inches or more deep. It gave the 1650 a good workout. Now to adapt the Massey 650 tiller to work on this tractor.
Plowing IS a lot of fun, good thing I started on the yard side and worked my way to the fence!

I understand the runners. I pulled up a Formosa tree once. Runners went for 40 feet in ALL directions! Lukily just under the ground a couple inches, so pulled right on out. Made a wreck of the yard till it all laid back down though.
