Only 20-25 minutes for me! Maybe a bit longer since I plan to get more gas. Sounds like we may have a breeze blowing. out of the S.E. at 15-25 MPH. We will need to get the leaves tilled in, as more moisture is on the way.

55 miles for me, I won't be running the speed limit. If I can run 50 I'll be good.

I have the DB with plow and disc, and the CC with tiller, plus my Brinly plow and CC Brinly hitch. I had thought bring the MF hitch as well. Extra gas and a lawn chair.

I have DB hat and my CC hat for what ever I may be running at the time. LOL

I need to remember the cameras, they are on the charger.

Well I'm back, I'll have some video up soon.

All in all it was a good day, but this Oklahoma clay is tough stuff, it took some work, but we all had fun.

My little was tearing it up with the big boys, and I can sure feel it now.

Hey, All! I made it back. I had a blast. I've never plowed before, but this was some tough stuff. I didn't get a whole lot of pics, I was having too much fun! Tried the Ford, couldn't get the plow to sink in. Got to looking and found the Sleeve Hitch adapter on the front of the plow was turned 180* compared to everyone else's. Flipped that over, still couldn't get it to go in. Cranked the adjuster so the nose was way down and it would try to make a furrow. Everybody was having the same problem. This stuff was TOUGH! Changed to plow over to the FF. Tried to get it to dig in, but the built in float wouldn't let it. I think where we started was a feed area for cattle at some time, as further down the slope, I could go pretty good.

We had lunch and most folks had given up trying. I finally found a setting (nose way down) that the FF would work at. And I started making furrows. A few others tried to follow, but just couldn't get theirs to work. I was plowing about 6" deep ( need the Depth Gauge Assy. Daniel!) and pulling wheelies. Front tires were about a foot off the ground several times, but the FF kept on churning. I need some weight on the front of this sucker, plus loaded tires and wheel weights. That FF was doing what no one else could do. There was even a diesel there that couldn't do what that old Sears was doing. I'm very happy with this tractor.

Most of the pics I got are of the line up like Pats. The diesel (AC 920?) is between the Ford and the FF.

Kendi was taking videos following the FF. Not sure if she got a wheelie pic. She is supposed to get copies to me, but I don't know when that will happen.

Here's a few pics of the furrows we were making. The last two pics are of what the FF did by itself. Mike broke out his International with a 2-bottom and the FF was doing better than it. His IH isn't a full size tractor, but much bigger than a Cub. I forgot what # it is. (In the 5th pic you can see it)

It did take me a while to get used to the controls on the FF. I'm used to the Ford's foot pedal. Plus the lift is handier on the Ford. But I got to plow and had a great time. I'm ready to do some more. Just need to get some weight on it. And the ground was a bit wet. The tires would load up with mud and make it easier to spin. The limited slip worked great on both tractors, just the ground was HARD! The AG's wouldn't hardly leave a mark til they spun!

Yep this ground was hard. I hadn't thought about a feeding area but it makes sense.

I bet it was, Pat. It was close to the buildings. I bet if we had went about half way towards the road, we would have done much better.

The FF did have an issue. I made a couple rounds, then it just started dying out. Pulled the choke and it would try to run. No problems before this and I do have Seafoam in the gas. We pulled the line off the fuel pump (elec.) and gas shot across the tractor. So major surgery to get to the carb. It's a real pain to get the air filter housing off. Got to the carb and took the top off. Found the float was set way low. Bent the tab a little and it all cleared up. It does have a copper float! No more issues. Oil pressure stayed steady all day!

I had to adjust the carb on my DB a little bit, and the clutch doesn't want to stay engaged. And one of the bolts fell out of the S/G on the cub.

I think we need to do this again, but a 2 day event. Use the first day getting folks set up, Then, go for it. I'm no guru on this, but I would be willing to help folks get set up and plowing. But we need some softer ground to work in. Maybe after this next storm passes, we'll have better ground moisture and soften things a bit.

I agree, I plowed my garden this and it went really well, but the ground has been worked up before.
