Kenny maybe you could make the plowframe so you could put a smaller point for breaking hard soil

This point will be bolted on, so swapping should be simple. Don't forget I have this one also.

I went out and looked both over. Found out they are related!

Both are "Empire" shares! First one is a 27-8. Second is a 55-8(?) I believe. Here's a mockup of things.

Trying to decide if I want to attach to the adapter or just build a 3-point hook up on the shank.

Just for info, the red colored parts are from a horse drawn set up. I have a small chunk of 1-1/2" square tube I plan to drill and bolt onto this instead of welding directly to it. Think I'll just make it a stand alone 3-point. Now to figure out how deep I want to go with it. Probably the top of the tall share?

I've never used one but my guess is to agree with you ,top of plow just below the dirt line. Makes sense

Here is how I used the one i found. Might be a little heavier then the one you have, but they will all get the job done. Works great for planting taters.

One thing I keep forgetting about the FF 3-point is there is the ability to adjust both arms up/down (not just one side as found on most 3-points). So I think I will set this up for the middle of that adjustment. Thanks guys!

I use one on a walk behind for digging my potatoes, set pretty deep it works surprisingly well.

i used to grow 600hills of potatoes every year and use a hiller like that to hill them. Ran the tiller between the rows and as the shovel pushed the loose dirt to the side there was very little hand work to do.

I now have a middle buster for my ford tractor and will never dig potatoes without it again.
