I needed to get Alice ready for Daniel's Plow day in Kentucky. I had taken a 10" Sleeve hitch plow and converted it to 3-point. I wanted to 'dial' it in closer, so I got Alice ready for this. I cleared enough floor space to work on the plow!

Here's the plow and the mast from the 12".

Next was getting her up into position.

With the mast attached, it was getting the lower arms adjusted to fit.

I left the back end a little high as Brinly calls for in their manuals.

For width of cut, I drew a chalk line back from the inside of the tire.

After finalizing the setup, I raised the plow to see how it looked.

My last trip to Daniels, I kept loosing the flip-pin on the low side. I rotated the plow pins to horizontal this time and added chains so they wont get plowed under.

Looks good Kenny, is the inside width of the front wheels the same as the back?

You might need a wheel on that plow to control the depth.  ???

I can take the one off the sleeve hitch, but I lowered the 3-point all the way down and adjusted the arms to fit from there. Can't go much deeper!

Hope you can make it Doug!

Are you useing the turf tires for plowing Kenny, or adding chains or changing to ag tires. Just wondering.

Wish I could go to plow day, but it's 24 hours driving on google maps. So it would take me 4 days to get there.

I'm using the tires on it. Taking chains just in case. Remember, I have 65 lbs. weight per wheel on there!

Alice is screaming Ags Ags I can hear her from here! Also make sure you have enough down travel to get the plow started as the nose rolls in the furrow.

That's what I'm hoping! Minor tweaks will be needed, I'm sure!

Trying to figure those out. I have 1 Carlisle 23-10.50X12 Super Lug. Like to find another to go with it as it is nearly brand new! I wish I could get something like the 26-12X12 in a narrower tire (10.50 width)
