Well I eventually got around to trying to plough with the Elf if you can call it that. I still don't have the rear wheel weights fitted which didn't help with traction but I think with a bit of help setting the ploughs properly from the guys who plough with their Gutbrod's it should all come good.

I also have a short video but need to work out how to shrink it down before uploading

Thanks guys, I never actually progressed to using the left plough. I was having enough trouble with the one I did use and as it was just a short plot I was working on it was quicker to reverse back down and start in the same direction.

I can just see two tractors heading straight for one another ploughing the same furrow :D GT version of playing chicken :rolling:

Video is now added to previous post, I think!

Thanks John for the great video, and pictures.

So that's what an Elf is supposed to do. :D

That horn sure came in handy, for motivating those chickens.

Not posted for a while so here's an update of the latest Gutbrod items I have found

 

Aerator

02Lüfter.jpg 03Lüfter.jpg

Not used it yet, in fact it doesn't look like it has ever been used and came with the original sales receipt dated 1968.

 

Grubber and tool frame/depth wheels to mount it

20150725_111042.jpg 20150725_111103.jpg

Again doesn't look like its been used much if at all

 

Oh and of course the PTO adapter to go with the trailer which I posted about at the time of purchase

It did make it to a local agricultural show last year but no video though just a photo before we set off

There was a link for a video of a stationary test in the original trailer post - Not sure how to link to it from here

 

And I have a feeling I posted this pic once before somewhere

If I get half a chance I will get a video this summer but I have a major project replacing a shed roof that has nail rot so will be busy with that for a while.
