what kind of Tillage equipment do you enjoy using? It can be anything.

For me, it is a combination of a tow behind disk and rolling basket harrow.

I like it because in 2 passes after plowing, I could plant.

I'm gonna stick up a video of it being pulled behind my john deere 300 after it gets loaded on YouTube

In GT size rough in, it would be my 12" sleeve-hitch behind the 782 Cub :rocker2:

For finish work it is a Kubota factory tiller on a 11Hp Diesel  B-6000 my BIL bought new in 1976. It will make powder if you choose to. I've put in literally acres of lawn over the years for family and friends with this unit. :dancingbanana:

 

Some day I want to try a 982 Cub, but I've been warned I'll never be satisfied again with my 782, so I guess its good they are out of my price range :smilewink:

I like my Brinly plow behind my JD 212. Works great and works the tractor nice. Actually just built a gauge wheel for my plow. Just waiting to get all the veggies out of the garden to give it a whirl.

Why so many? Can only run 1 plow and tractor at a time, right?

I'm not usually the only one plowing. My oldest goes to plow days with me. Plus my 2 younger are getting to the point they can run one on their own.

I can only run 1 tractor at a time but I have a few of those. All backups just in case haha

It would have to be my sleeve hitch plow. My tractor mounted tiller would be a close  second choice. I plowed the garden and pig pasture for the first time this spring. Previously I have only had a walk behind tiller to work with. After plowing, I hooked the tiller up and got all of the pig pasture done and just started on the garden when I sheared off a pin in the tillers gearbox. I struggled with trying to get it apart for a bit, then just pulled out the old walk behind tiller to finish up. I couldn't believe the difference in tilling plowed ground with the walk behind compared to unplowed soil  After tilling, I hooked up my sleeve hitch cultivator and made one pass, set at about 2 inches deep and that raked it all out nice and smooth. Considering last years pigs had dug holes over a foot and a half deep in spots, I was quite impressed. This years pigs have not dug any holes that deep yet, but they have one or two that are close and they will still be here till October 26th.

 

Jim.

And, I don't think that's all of Eric's plows! I believe at least one is missing.

I would have to agree with Eric! Got a 10" sleeve hitch plow, a 3-point 10" plow and a 12" 3-point plow. Those do more for tillage than anything else I have.

Yes, they're kind of an obsession. Just as bad as the tractors themselves. Hate to say it but I swapped a buddy that 8" for the red 12" in the middle. Only machines he has are 7 and 8 hp wheel horses. They'd stop dead when that 12 sunk in. The 8 was perfect for him. Plus it's still close. He lives down the street. I've spied another one though, I may have to snag up.

I'm just happy it's being used. I have to say my plow is great for fun, but the box scraper I got from Daniel is getting a lot more use, since I don't have anything resembling a level spot! I'll have to get some pics....

Since I got a hydro I enjoy tilling a whole lot more than when I was using a 3
speed. As I have been tilling and moving and leveling dirt I also have modified my
blade so it won't dig in as much.

I think that is the first time I have ever seen a front mounted box blade. Cool.
