If you have a throttle cable for it, I will fix it Friday morning! That would be a great pic for sure! I think Alice will be drooling to get close to Hogzilla!

I just pulled the cable out.  It's close to 6' long as it goes from the fender box then up in front of the engine & loops back to the carb.  I may see if I can get hold of new cable and housing this week.  Still though, I have little time to even get anything done.  Either way, we'll have a great plow day!  I wanted to have a tractor or 2 with plow available for those without that want to give it a try.

Get a length + if possible and I'll have a new one there! You have enough to fret over right now.

Got 2-bottom plow hooked up & lift pressure seems fine.  Plow is roughly adjusted.

My Grandson Case came to my last one, and he was just 5 then.

I was hoping Willie would bring Heath up for the day?

I will not have something to plow with but but plan on being there! Should I bring the JD STX carcess and stuff with me?

Daniel, thats a nice looking plow you have. I hope you get some video of it plowing, would love to see it. I always watch the videos after the plow day, looks like a lot of fun.

We are now down to 2 of us going.

Alabama is having a plow day next weekend so my buddy Rob is going to that one instead of this one.

My daughter has a charity 5k run to do on the 2nd so she is out too.

So it will be just me and my nephew Ben.

We are bringing 2 machines.

Thank you to KennyP and Supply Seargeant who offered to let me use a sleeve hitch plow but I won't be needing it now.

I am bringing my 430 and 322 both have plows to pull..

This plow doesn't work well on Hogzilla due I suppose to the lift arm configuration.  I won't have time to deal with that before plow day, so likely I'll have the 12" single on for plow day.  One of these days I will build a completely new 3pt/plow beam for a 2 bottom and just use the moldboard assemblies off these.  Then it would do much better I'm sure.

This here is cotton picker and skullbone. Reservations are made so we plan to be with fellow plow boys at olcowhand 's. Hope to pull in Thursday nite. May take us a while to get this junk to plow right. Appreciate the inquiries made on our behalf. David had a stroke last spring but is ready to plow. He talks slow but plows fast.

i was hoping to make it up there with a load of bush hogs and to put some faces with some names but unfortunately have to work that weekend.  im in the same boat as Daniel as I only have 3 or 4 hogs that are running currently.  in the process of working through and redoing ignition on 2 others but that has been on the back burner with other things going on.  its not helping that we are about to get yet another monsoon so I will get further behind trying to get dirt ready to put a crop in.  at least the equipment is ready to go to the field.   im sure that weekend will be just perfect and ill be stuck on call.
