Our John Deere 5 bottom semi doesn't have one either.  It's very much like your 5 bottom semi, but older.

We've had about 1" of rain out of this system so far, and there are small chances for rain for most of the rest of the week. When we did some field finishing last week (mainly to knock down the weeds), most of the ground was in good shape, though there were a few moist spots.

Actually, that isn't a depth gauge wheel.  It's called a rolling landslide.  Not all plows have them though.

Your right, I thought about it later and it made sense that it's not a depth wheel.

what weeds are those that your turning under?.  just wondering if you have the same stubborn ones as we do .

Our biggest issues are giant ragweed,  Dandlions,  some fox tail,  and lambsquarter.

Gabriel, looks like you have the Henbit weed like we do.  Sometimes our fields will be like a carpet with it.  It's everywhere too, yard edges, barnyards, just everywhere.  

  Hey Rob, do you guys have Johnsongrass up there?  That & Crabgrass are our worst weeds.

those weeds are moving in, but by far our worst is the giant ragweed, it is getting more difficult to control every year

Wild garlic (it always smells good when you till it under!), Purple deadnettle, chickweed, Shepherds purse and (as you suspected, Daniel) Henbit.
