With the paint barely dry on the tractor and the plow is pretty much as found condition it was time to take advantage of the nice weather and lay in a little garden.Been so long I took a GT Talk refresher course on setting up the plow. So off I went, if you thought the movie War Horse featured some brutal plowing you have have not seen my garden ! The little Briggs Model N pulled the over sized 6 x 12 tires fine thru the sod,lucky my soil is very light and sandy. Good new is the Simplicity disc and cultivator fit fine so I am in good shape that. Hopefully the weather holds and I can get back out there again and finish up. Cheers Mike

Looks like it did a nice job for you, good to see a 2 wheeler getting a workout.

Yes all done, now I have to disk it. Still way to cold to get the ground warm enough to plant.  Nice plowing with the two wheeler. Noel

My garden is so wet I'd lose the plow or tiller for sure.  Last of the snow piles only vanished into puddles yesterday......

Nice looking tractor, glad it got the job done for you.

Farmer John, that is too funny and true I sent a ignitor bracket to a shop in Manitoba to be repaired and a Webster low tension mag added and Rudy told me that a fresh inch of snow was on the ground. Really this winter just wont end,ran out of gas before I could cultivate and the monsoon season is in full swing.Other than wheel bearing grease what do you guys put on the plow after use ? I am going to try Krown a anti rust oil like Fluid Film. Cheers Mike

I am hoping to do a little plowing this year with one of my Bolens Power Ho Deluxe tractors. But it needs to stop raining first!

Not sure how I missed this, but just found it searching for something else.  The tractor looks great!  love the colour scheme.  Is that the Spectramaster Green we had discussed?

The paint is a home brew mix mostly Shutter Green and Holland Yellow with a spot of Black all Armour Coat paints. Came out pretty close to the original also the Empire is done had it running on the weekend. Been a dry spring here hope you guys are getting your fair share of the rains. Take care Mike

Is one of the two upper corners of you plow support brackets welded solid?  I have two plows, one with two bolts, the other with one bolt & a weld (upper right).  Just wondering which is correct.
