Here is a couple pictures of me plowing with my 1855 at the Redneck plow day in SC last weekend.  I just got the motor back in it the week before.   The motor was bored .20 over and I went trough it and got it back together just in time.  The carb. wasn't set just right but it was fun none the less.

not enough.  The front is little light with 100lbs on the front.  I have around 100lbs on each rear wheel with the wheel weights.  The wheels are not loaded.

 

The plow days are a lot of fun, even though it was a little to wet this year.

Thanks for the positive responses.  If you like talking and see garden tractors then a plow day is a must and I strongly recommend it.

That is one great looking tractor. I have the snapper version and it is my goto tractor for all the big jobs.

I know this is an older thread, but do you have any pics of the plow set up? I am looking to get one for mine, want to see how it is setup on the back of yours.

10" or 12" moldboard?

Scuffy's is one beautiful tractor though, would like to get mine there someday.

I will try to get a picture of the plow and the setup this weekend.  I do have a better picture in the registry of the plow, but I will take some closer pictures this weekend.

Thanks,  I've had it for about five years now.   For a long time I would drive down the rode and look over in a field and you could only get a glimpse of the hood through the weeds growing over it.  So one day my dad and I stopped and asked the guy if he would liked to sell it.  Shortly after killing the bees and dragging it onto the trailer, I started on it and like everyone on here knows you never stop finding something to do.

 

Thanks for all the great responses.
