Now that is a toy that I wouldn't mind seeing in my backyard! Hmm, wonder if I could get one of those added to the collection without the wife taking notice? :D

Good thinking, Brian! Ronnie, a 50' swath doesn't take long to get the job done. That's what I use to pull around with the 8850.


Maybe you could make that trip Kenny. not too far south of DFW area. :smilewink:

Ronnie, We can have a great Plow Day at your place. 20 GT's can plow that in one day.


Might have been a little rough this time around. Got to checking and it hasn't been plowed since '95. As you know we haven't had much rain and this old black dirt gets hard as concrete. He even commented that it plowed very heavy. Might be something to think about after the wheat is combined.

Ronnie, I think a April or May Plow day would work great. That Wheat ground will plow great, I'll bring the banner.

Do you think a 30 day notice would be long enough?

Are you worrying about when harvest is?

No, just wondering about contacting people early enough so they can make plans but not so early that they'll forget about it. Not sure if I want to do it yet, have you been to plow days before? If so, what all is involved?

Not been to any plow days for GT's, but years ago did several PD with big tractors. Main thing is for you with my help if you want it to set a date. Work out all the logistics like parking, food, toilets, lodging, a second back up date in case of bad weather.

I think we need to see how many would attend first? That would give us an idea of how big it will be.

I can send out info to some of the farm tractor shows and see what they say.

Maybe once people say they are coming we could send them E-mail reminders every few weeks.

We also might want to contact that show group in Temple and see if they can help get the word out.

We could put in next years show guide if we can submit it by Friday, Nov. 2nd. That doesn't leave much time.

Ronnie, you can make it plain & simple the 1st time to ease into it. Really the only thing truly needed is a porta-potti. You don't have to offer a meal or anything else if you don't want to. Likely if you do offer food, putting out a donation jar would cover most, if not all your expenses. I went full out & offered chili, hot dogs & soft drinks, and I still came close to covering actual costs of what was consumed. What was left we just froze, so no waste. We can eat it ourselves later. Even though I didn't recover all my expenses, I am completely glad I held my plow day. I didn't do it expecting to come out ahead. You would be glad you hosted a plow day too I'm sure.

Ronnie, it's closer, but still a bit far for me. Best thing is put out feelers and see what comes from them. If you start now, you'll know if it would be worth the effort.
