The planter weighs something around 300 pounds. Will a John Deere 300 lift it with the hoppers 1/4 full? Will it have enough hp to run it in tilled ground?
The ground is either clay or sandy clay where I will be planting. I may end up extending the garden onto a hill.
I think I might need to find a solution to stability and flotation, my idea is either flipping the rims around for stability or adding duals. The duals will be put on for planting and taken off for planting.
I fully understand that duals or flipping rims around can and will put additional stress on the axle and other transaxle components. I feel if it is only done for planting I might be able to get away with it. Planting will be done on tilled ground so it won't be rough or bumpy.
I will probably also take this setup to the local plowing match to show off.
Open invitation to the plowing match. Pm for details.
