Check out posts 15-18 in the D200 thread over on the MoM forums :D


How disappointing! I thought it was a slang that you guys use for something entirely different and a bit naughty.......

Oh well, you now know what a topper is Implement wise. For others, it's a heavy duty, triple rotary blade, cutting deck to cut rough grass and vegetation. They are rear mounted and are similar to a flail mower. PTO driven on a 3 point linkage.

 In the UK, plow is spelt Plough and I really have to think when I type this word out for you guys!

 

Plough is perfectly acceptable for a furrow plow here in the states, also.

Actually, what is the correct term for plows for garden tractors? Furrow plows, mold board plows? I assume there are different plows for different plowing conditions.

I think that the most proper would be moldboard plow.  However there are some different terms used in different regions of the country, and then compound that by folks trying to name/describe an implement when they have no agricultural experience.

 

There is also a disk plow, which is not to be confused with the disc cultivator.

Around here, plow for moldboard plow, plow or blade for snow or dozer unit. Usually, snow plow or snow blade will simplify things, but the confusion gets worse again when you throw belly and rear grader blades into the mix.

I'm sure that was no help at all. :D

Excellent find on the weights and it sounds like you are one step closer to having a plow :thumbs:

I am a little disappointed in that link, I thought for sure you would show him a real tractor with a real disc plow.

Please forgive me.  I'll put myself on bread and water of 2 days as penance.

 

I don't know what came over me.  Maybe the Devil (Deere) made me do it.

Thanks for the encouraging words on the wheel weights and the plough as well. When I get photos of the said plough, I will post it under a new thread/post and await your comments.

Cheers.

No worries, you are forgiven since you are a collector of Bolens, and not used to the red vs green debates. :D
