I haven't made it to Almalund but I have a friend who always attends that show and wants me to put it on my list of places to go. Our tractor show will be June 25th this year and the fall plow day will be in mid October. Hope you can make it down to one or both of the events we put on! Tractor nuts are always welcome.


where is the plow day? Ill have to decide weather I want to bring the custom, the gravely or the suburban lol

The show is here in Arkansaw WI. We are east of Ellsworth by 20 miles on US Hwy 10. The plow day is held on a farm just 3 miles south of Arkansaw.

Well today I got some time to finish up rebuilding the plow. I made up a hitch for the front with a lot of adjustment possibilities. It is based off of the old John Deere 3 bottom pull type plows we used to have at home on the farm. With all the adjustment I should be able to find the line of draft where the plow will pull best. The snow is rapidly leaving but it will be awhile before I can test it out and see if it all works ok or not. I added some springs just to help out in lifting the plow up. Here are some pictures of what I got done today.
