Anyone plan on going?  I have never been to one.  I just finished building a sleeve hitch and attaching a single plow.  I have never plowed with a GT.  Not sure if mine will even turn.  I don't know to rules.  Do you have to be a member of a club?  Any info you can give me will be great.  I don't want to look to amaturish.

It is a 1964 Jac.  I believe I have plenty of up/down.  I set the angle by putting 5" of block under the left front and rear tires. Hope that was enough.  The only thing I don't know if I got right is the alignment of the share.

We are planning on going for both Friday and Sat, which day are you going?  

 

Nice looking hitch, do you have a little "Float" built into it?

Hitch looks great. Your biggest issue would be traction and if you can overcome that you can plow just about anything. Plow setup is a big plus too. There should be quite a few members at the plow day :D

Hello Wade,

 

The hitch looks nice !

 

It is hard to see in the picture but, did you make any means for side to side adjustment of the plow ?? 

 

The reason I ask is, the outer/furrow side of the plow share should overlap the furrows edge by about 2" so that the inner side of your rear tire can run the furrow wall and the outer 2" of the  tip of the share will be exposed to get a clean cut.

 

I just say this because now ( at home ) is the time to make the plow adjustable as it is kinda hard sometimes to do this in the field without proper tools and the lack of power at most places.

 

When I get time, I'll try to find a picture to help show what I am trying to say !!

Ron,

 

I do not have side to side adjustment.  I aligned the outer edge of the blade just past the inside edge of the tire.  I am going to take it to a buddys farm and give it a try. I can drill and tap additional holes to allow for adjustment.

Wade,

 

I have looked for a picture and have failed to this point. I did find a picture but, it is a PDF manual from John Deere on the PP1200 plow and most of us know that posting John Deere PDF's are out of the question !!!

 

By your last post, I can tell you understand what I am trying to say and you are going in the right direction and it sound like you may be close already !  Going to your buddies place for a shake down run is the best thing you could do to get it set up.  I will be at the PA Plow Days both Friday and Saturday. There are many guys willing to help out, including me so look me up if needed.

 

 And even if not, I am sure we will meet up at the GTTalk  gathering  :wave:
