well on saturday our local club had a spring plow day and i took my farmall h and a john deere no 55 plow. the plow is a 3 bottom plow, but i couldn't pull all three bottoms so i took the first one off and made it a 2 bottom plow. here is a short video from the drivers seat.

caution it is a little loud

Now ya know why the old farmers can't hear. Use tractors like that day in and day out it takes its toll. And some prior to this had no muffler at all. Oh yea, an M has enough trouble pulling a 3 bottom plow, it is too much for an H as you have learned. It looks like it was doing a nice job the way you had it.

Thanks for posting the video. The tractor is doing a nice job with that plow. It's nice to see that someone is plowing something other than snow.

usually we plow in a different field in the fall and it struggles but it will pull all 3 bottoms as long as they are scoured and it doesn't spin out

I am so envious of you guys that are able to be in the fields working up ground already.  Great video by the way.  Where I am at, have heard of frost going down as far as 5+ feet deep yet...gonna be a long time til we get in the fields if it doesn't warm up soon.

Looking forward to some plowing here too. I don't think I will be taking the 81 to our local plow day, but may be able to do some at the farm.

Love the sound of the H and is there a better smell than fresh turned dirt?

  50 odd yrs ago I spent too many hrs on an "H" pulling a 5 disc one way. The one way had a rope from the seat to the lift on the plow. Pull the rope and the plow lifts, make the turn and pull the rope again and the plow drops. Then when finished w/ the field you have the pleasure of going across all the corners and plowing them out. A rough ride on the outer edges!! So you idle it down enough to keep from getting thrown off the seat
