Thanks Kenny today was the big test, got my sled in there and tried the Bolens to see if they both fit.   They did..

Put the dozer blade on to check the width, looks like i'm all set for winter.  Not sure how safe those barrels are but so far i've loaded the tractor in there twice without the coupler hitched to anything.

The big news today was I got the brinly plow mounted on back.

Took about an hour to set up, previously was on a 3pt.  There were some rusty nuts and the handle was frozen.  With some time and WD I was able to change the depth in the field without tools or getting off the tractor.

I'll post up some pics of the new garden tomorrow, today was a long day.

One last pic

I'm no expert but i think the plow polished itself pretty well

Oldford, it looks like you are getting some good use out of your Bolens. I see you have rubber tire chains on it. What do you think of them around the yard? Worth it? I couldn't seem to find many opinions about summer use of rubber chains. I run chains year round between plowing, traction on my tough hill, and soggy low areas.

They work in my yard because even the grass is rough, real clumpy.  So i don't notice the chains.  If i drive on the road i can feel the thump, they are every 4 links.  They go on and off easy but i don't really have the back to be swapping chains out.  I wouldn't have been able to plow the garden without them, fwiw...
