I went over to my SIL's last weekend and he was out plowing so I decided I better get busy and jump in before he had it all done. Last monday I put the plow on the Jim Dandy , loaded it on the truck  and hauled it over to his place.    I thought I had it adjusted pretty close, but we did have to move the hitch.  Here's the pictures.

it was looking pretty good.

  Never could get the plow to scour ,  After we finished  I took it home, cleaned it good, tried  paint remover because it looked like paint on it  then used a4 inch grinder with a wire wheel but couldn't get the rust off.

 Don't know if these two short videos will come through or not. Hope they do cause they show  a real nice job.

That's great.  It looks like it did a great job.  

 

I'd like to know what you shot the movies with.  When I blew the Mpeg up to full screen, it had a cool effect that looked just like my grandfather's super 8 film movies.

 

Thanks for posting the great photographs and videos.

It does look like you had fun & it came out great.  Love the sound of the Jim Dandy chugging along.

 

I'm not sure if it is related to your lack of scour problem, but it looks like your plow is missing the coulter wheel (#6).  I have a similar plow.  I'll get a photo for you in the morning.

 I don't have a coulter for it, but that wouldn't help with the scouring.  A coulter would help on the edge of the field where we started  to cut thru the vegetation  so the dirt would roll over instead of just being ripped up.  I took it over there to plow because of the gravel in the fields.  If we had plowed the whole 2 acres,  it might have shined it up.
