Which is easier to pull one 14" bottom or two 10" bottoms both going 5" depth? Wondering if it would be easier to pull a 14 because it is 6 less inches or if it is easier to pull the two 10" because each bottom is moving less dirt

the 14" should be easier to pull but depending on the tractor it might pull the 2 bottom just fine.

The 14" may not plow right at 5". It should be at 7" deep. No difference just in a garden, but if you are in a plow match, the 14" should be at 7" deep. Noel

Did some figuring and the 14" wide plow x 7" deep = 98 sq in, in the ground you have to pull. The two 10" wide plows x 5" deep = 100 sq in. So that's about the same amount of pull. The 14" plow 5" deep = 70 sq in.

So the 14x5 should be easier to pull than the two 10x5's. Just my guess, Noel.

My thought was with a GT I'd need to plow at 5" to stay in line with 10" plows. Also wondering if at plow day if a 10" plow would be able to cover my 14" furrow?

I think one sod would be higher than the other, same with width, one wider than the other.  Noel
