Looks good, Brian! Do you have a tiller attachment for the Versa-Matic or the 850 as well? That plough looks like it did a decent job, but it leaves too many big clumps of dirt. The tiller will do a better job of breaking those up. Unless you want to leave it like that over the winter and then till it up better in the spring?
Tillers were never available for the Versa-Matics, but I do have a couple tillers for the Tubeframes.
I plow in the fall then till in the spring. Turning the dirt over in the fall makes for much easier tilling in the spring.
Gotta love the hydraulic lift on that 850 too. Did it come with that or did you buy it separately and add it on? It looks newer than the rest of the tractor (at at least it has fresher looking brown paint on it).
I bought it separately on ebay a while back.
Can you hook up other attachments to your 850 with that sleeve hitch that would normally hitch onto the short plate mounted to the transaxle case, or does it only fit certain ploughs and bigger attachments designed to use with a sleeve hitch? I'm wondering if you could tow like a small garden/utility trailer with the sleeve hitch. That plough looks like it has a taller hitch gap in it than like a utility trailer would. Also, since it goes up and down with the attachment lift, I'm wondering if it would be good to even try to tow a trailer with it...
There were a variety of attachments Brinly made that attached to the sleeve hitch. Dump cart, Discs, plow, Cultivators, Seeders ect. I guess you could tow a small dump cart with the sleeve hitch but thats not what it was really designed for.
