Here is a quick video of my first try at plowing with the 2 bottom steel wheel plow I rebuilt. It does pretty well but I had to add some weight to the rear of the plow to help get the rear bottom in the ground. I have to free up the adjustment linkage on the front bottom some more and maybe by getting it to dig at a little steeper angle it wouild help bring the rear bottom down also. Overall I am happy with the way it works, just need to fine tune it a bit yet. The Allis/Massey/Cub cadet pulled it fine but I think it would still pull to hard for just a none weighted down tractor to pull. I am still looking for a single bottom plow to make a mate to this one so it would pull easy enough for most any garden tractor to be able to handle it.

Really neat, glad it does what you wanted.

Hope to see more ids when the adjusters are free. Doesn't sound like the mallicub was working too hard.
