Hi All

My trial of my new plough did not go to plan but will stick with it and modify to suit,but here are some photos of what went on.

The ransome  worked well with the two furrow plough,the wheelhorse worked well with its skinny wheels but will have to get wheel weights note the temporary ones Tam And Alec. they made all the difference Ha Ha hope you like

Great pictures :thumbs:     Are you keeping the same tires on the WH and just add weights or change the tires too ?

Nice plowing.
You guys really have it together when it comes to nice furrows and square finishes

I like your volunteer weights, you know they're friends if they trust your driving and will perch on the fender :D

Thanks for the pics.

Wow,

Thanks for sharing. You guys really do a great job plowing and as Alan said a super finish as well. It looks like you have a lot of fun doing it also.

 

 

Take care,

Mike

That Ransomes is quite the machine, pulling a double bottom plow.  What engine is in it, and how many hp???

Many years ago, when I was 11 years old, my uncle taught me to plow straight furrows. I thought I learned to do a pretty good job. I have never in my life seen furrows as straight as is in these photos! Well done , Sirs!

 

The finishes are all outstanding.
