George that's got to be the best Garden Tractor Plowing Video I've ever seen.

Thanks for putting it together.

George,

 

Great video  :thumbs: 

 

Thank You for taking the time to take it and to put it together for all to view !!

 

I hope you don't mind but, I am going to put up a link over on WFM as I am pretty sure this will be the best video of this years event  :D 

 

Don't mind at all. You can hear when the one guy's diff lock on his 430 lets go and also see it when his left rear stops spinning after going back down in the hole.

Here is a short video I had taken.  This video shows how nice the soil was even after all the rain we had gotten.

 

Gotta love that sandy soil !!

Thank You Sir for the complement !

 

 It does take some work to get these plows plowing this way and I enjoy trying to make it work better each time I go to a plow day.

Ron, were you using your coulter?  Looks like a mighty clean cut not to have the coulter on.  Love the sound of the diesels!

I ran without the coulter and was able to make a nice clean cut like that. You just have to have it set up right.

I also shot a short video of plowing with my 12H. I am very pleased with how it plowed, but I need to modify the lift straps on my sleeve hitch as it barely pulls the plow out of the ground (clears the ground by 3 inches at the most). It made the point dig in everytime I hit a bump and the plow would bounce.



I'm not sure why its linking the video instead of posting it on the site. Not sure what I did wrong.

Chad, the Massey is doing a great job. The repower is fantastic too.

As for the clearance on the Brinly, it's not much more than that on most of the Massey setups. Even the OEM ones. Ryan's did a lot better this year with the reinforcements. He even used the word "happy" with it now... :thumbs:

Thanks Alan, it definately did a good job.  I am just not 100% happy with how it lifts.  I think I'm going to drill another hole in the lift straps so it lifts a little higher.  I think that I can sacrifice a little depth as it goes way deeper than it needs too.  A little bit more out of the ground would be nicer to keep the plow from digging in. 

 

Glad Ryan is happy with his 10.  He seemed to be on it for quite a while on saturday.

 

Thanks for fixin that link too.

Sorry to hear a couple of guys had issues afterwards. Was hoping everyone would come out of it unscathed. Some of the pulling action was pretty strenuous.
