Alice got to pull a garden plow today! I'm very proud of how she did! :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:

No chains on the tires either, just the Sears weights. Aaron wanted a furrow cut alongside a building to help channel water away instead of through it. So I put the 3-point to sleeve adapter on Alice and the 10" sleeve hitch plow on there. Since it was only one furrow, I didn't try to set anything, just let her dig. And she did an awesome job of that. Got close to the building and scraped some paint off the wheel weight, but it was gonna happen some time. I'm very happy with the performance of this tractor. Plus, I got seat time! :dancingbanana:

 

Now for some pics!

Here's the work area!

This plow is the one I plan to make a 3-point hitch for.

Kenny, is my tablet messing up or did your pics not go thru? Good to hear you got some seat time though.

Good Stuff Kenny glad you got to use it to do something.

I think you can reverse the Sears weights so they bow in instead of out.  ???

You mean the ground is dry enough and not froze down there?  I'll fix that on the next weather order. :rolling:  :dancingbanana:    :wave:

I'm thinking about putting the Gravely split weights on the inside!

No frozen ground here. It got to 90° on the front porch in the sun a bit ago! Running around in flip flops and tee shirts!

I mean you can mount the weights the other way, on the outside of the wheel,  so the curved side sticks in instead of out.

I gotcha, Doug. Still thinking about adding the others for more traction. It did surprise me that it did this well with those tires and the damp ground. Only spun once when the RH tire dropped in a hole from pulling a small tree out! I know the plow wasn't set near correct, but one furrow doesn't give an option for adjusting.

See what happens when you paint your tractors... Scratched all to heck. :poke:

By the way, nice to see a furrow this year. :D

If you get the original type of Simplicity wheelweights they have ones that fit into the wheels and others that go outside. They end up being very heavy.

 

I used my B10 with snow plow today to level some of the ruts in the driveway. It freezes at night and turns to mud during the day. Mud Season doesn't usually show up until March but we have it already this year.

 

I found an old B&S that may be the cover that you wanted but there is 6' of stuff between me and it(down from 8'). Good Luck, Rick

Now, all the natural seeds and stuff will fall into that ditch and start growing Big Weeds, plants or even trees!  Plowing is for crop prep you know! :D
