I now know what to expect when doing a 'real' plow day! Got lots of adjustments to make. The lift links are way too long, but easily adjustable. Then it's getting the plow set right.

I could have used Alice today, had to trench in some electric cable to my tractor shed.

Nice job.

I had tractor in my garden last night, almost got stuck just driving through, mud bog back there.

Kenny, I'm not surprised it did a good job on that furrow. Those ACs are a nice strong tractor and yours looks great. I have found that turfs can actually provide good traction on dry ground, especially if they are run with the pressure low enough to allow some flex in the sidewall.

I had about 8 PSI in them, Brian! I was worried as that area is on the North side of the building and pretty damp. Only spun the one time when it dropped into the hole. But both tires spun. I just raised the plow a little and it drove right out. Love that Peerless 2500!

I have decided to go ahead with my plans to build a 10" 3-point plow! I am going to use the beam from the 12" for now, just adapting the 10" to it. Look for a thread in the GT Implements forum. May be a bit yet.
