I had some time yesterday and since the day was so nice I decided to dig the Brinly plow out. After getting it mounted I drove over to the garden and started plowing. So far it's looking decent but I think the plow needs to be adjusted properly for it to work perfect. Overall it's still not bad for my first time using on of these plows, today I will finish up the rest of the garden.

Yeah, Matt! The plow looks great behind the Bolens.
It does look like its doing a good job. What is the surface of the plow like? Is it shiny smooth or is it rough?

Oh, and making Ray walk. Geez, meanie.

Matt, you've done a fine job from what I can see. And since you have a hydraulic lift and a sleeve hitch on that tube frame you can make adjustments pretty easily. :rocker2:

I finished up plowing the garden today and I'm impressed with how well the plow and 1050 worked. It's still not perfect but I got the plow to dig down and I pulled up quite a few large rocks. The 1050 did great too, a few times it grunted when the plow would hit a rock, otherwise it barely knew the plow was behind it. Now I need to work on making my rows straighter lol.

Looks like a good job done and even a little fun was had.
Finding a few rocks is part of the plowing. How deep do you normally plow and how deep were you this time?

This was the first time we have used a plow in our garden, it has always been a rototiller before. I think I was plowing somewhere between 6-8inched deep.

I'm amazed at the depth of the plow cut. That tube frame pulled it along without a problem.
