I never could plow a straight furor with the DB 600 (  walkbehind ) tractor I was always fighting with it . Then noticed the plow and beam didn't seem straight so I posted  the question http://gardentractor...-plow-question/

if was like that from the factory or not and yep it's bent lol . I tried bending it back and it helped a little but I'm thinking the steel is now soft . Once I took it apart you could really tell even now it needs to be straighter . I used a piece of 3/8" x 2" flatstock to reinforce it .I had a heck of a time getting the welder to work right , it wasn't until I was almost done I figured out what it was ,,the tip was pinching down on the wire and keeping it from feeding correctly :wallbanging:   why do we find the problem at the end of the job lol A quicky paint , put it back together and I'll see if it makes a difference this weekend

Wow Al, looks a lot straighter now! Hope the plow pays you back with nice furrows and a fun time.

Goofed up a little , I should cut out the area where the plow piviots on the beam before welding it , I ended up grinding most of the weld away :wallbanging:  , you can see the cut out section in the 3 rd picture  where the ground clamp is ,  still welded on the other side and not cut out . On the plus side I didn't cut it to length until after I heated , bent and welded it . That gave me some leverage when heated .

All back together , tried  it out  but couldn't  really good  test because of only running  one furor   in the garden , still too much growing  and the other sections  already have the   winter rye  cover crop growing   , once the tomatoes and sweet potatoes  are done I try it again

Another thing I might  need to do is the rollers are really worn both   inside and outside , this plow was a worker lol  . My brother picked up 6" plow and  will be bringing it up next weekend  , I'll take  those off it if they are better
