Wow. Thanks for the photos. Now I have a goal when I plow the garden.

 

Any tips and tricks you can share for setting up the plow and plowing? I want my next plowing to look like yours.

Thanks for sharing those great photographs.  I love that huge two wheeler.  It looks like a hand full.

Dear propane1 the part is called the finish and is judged the beginning is called the Feering the next is the throw outs the next throw in then you plough six tops each part is judged  when I am able to I will try to make a video.In the meantime you can look up

 

www.diamondfarm.com for USA and Canada  Look for a video called

                Vintage Match Ploughing Skills

It applies to vintage tractors used in the UK but the wee tractors follow the same principle  but for competition we only use a single furrow plough

wee is Scottish for small

:love: :reading_the_manual: :watching_you:

Coldone starting point

Put the plough on the tractor then set plough on ground.  the tip of the share touches the ground and the heel should touch the ground  it should have a hollow between the two if it does not the share is worn and needs  to be replaced

When I next go to the tractor shed I will take photos and post them

It is easier to show than explain hope this helps

George S :thank_you: :peace:

Sam. Rolloman has an Allan scythe with a plough it looks a beast  it had a bow that went from handle to handle you pressed it down and that raised the plough

They have no reverse so pig to work with.

As a matter of interest I have one with a sawbench have only seen one in Scotland and it is in my tractor shed

Here is a photosawbench.JPG

Coldone

Here is a photo of my plough .As I was saying the point of the plough and the heel must touch the ground.

There is  a hollow in the middle which  creates what we call suck this helps to keep the plough in the ground

If you tilt the plough to far forward and point digs in to far This is called dancing on its toes. :beerchug: :big_hug: :bigrofl:  you will never make a nice job this wayPlough suck.JPG

When you set it up on the tractor, do you raise the land side rear tire of the tractor to get the plow to sit level (side to side) before you put it in the ground?

 

Are depth adjusting wheels used to control the depth of the plow.

Dear coldone

Set the plough on ground with all wheels on the same level.The plough must be level from front to back .when you put the plough in the ground and start. The shape of the mouldboard turns the furrow and presses it against the one before

In competition ploughing speed is not essential   but uniformity is. Try this set the plough in the ground and go fast the plough will throw the soil over and leave broken furrows.Then go slow an allow the plough to turn the furrow you should see a difference

Nice to see your tractor and plow I can then see where you can adjust

Some ploughs have wheels and some do not that come as standard, it is everyone's choice :beer: :beerchug: :big_hug:

Thanks

Here is a video from a few years ago of my wife running the Plow. The plow is a Brinly sleeve hitch type plow that I converted to 3 PTH.

Dear coldone nice video

Your plough would benefit from a disc Coulter or a knife  I will send a picture of what I use if you fitted a land wheel it could help grip

The knife or disc would leave a clean edge to your ploughing

George S

PS what time of year did your plowing take place seems very dry Thanks :love:  Love it
