Thank you for sharing the photos!!!! Looks like you all were having a good time. Great looking tractors!! Some beautiful background too. Do you have more photos of the cable plowing? I sure would have loved to have been there to see that!! Watched some videos on YouTube, of that process. It was awesome!

I have never seen an L with rear steel. Did he make his own wheels for it? Looks like you had a great time. Were you plowing lands the same size as the big agricultural tractors?....Dave

Hi Dave

The steel wheels are two sets from an iron horse walk behind welded together and fitted to the John Deere L they seemed to work well.

We were allocated a part of a field and we were able to do what suits us

The plots were 30 metres long and 10 metres wide this is the minimum for horticultural ploughing . When we finished our plot and as we had two days we drew an other feering and started all over again

Thanks George Slove.gif.pagespeed.ce.tDq7Ygmcz4.gif :thank_you:
