Spent some time this week to assemble and reassemble two units for a possible plow day tomorrow.

One of these I had at Ball Hollow this spring, but had taken the plow and three point off of it.

The other one had a new three point installed.  And I had to refurbish the plow for it.

If the rains hold off enough we should get to plow on  Saturday.

I was at a local show two weeks ago and was told about a possible plow day for some vintage farm tractors.  I asked the gentleman if G.T.'s were welcome.   He hadn't  even considered that garden tractors would want plow also. But said he would try to fit us in somewhere.

That I know of there are only a couple other G.T,'s possibly going.    If I have to I'll plow by myself!!      Rick

Very nice pair. I am going to try and do a split crown this weekend. Hopefully. Will use my LGT 125 ford. Plow match coming up in two weeks for me.
Hope you have a good time at your plow day.

Noel.

Hope the rain hold off and you get to educate a couple folks that these aren't just lawn mowers. :D

Why did you use an actuator when the tractor has hydraulic lift?

The event has been postponed until next weekend.  They are actually wanting some rain.  The ground is very hard at this time.

I already had the sears three point adapted to that tractor once.  It was simplest to reinstall it, rather than engineer a three point hook-up for the hydraulics.

It utilizes the rear plate from a Sears XL10 and a sears three point, and actuator.   I still need to change it a little but it is usable for now.

For the other unit I recently purchased a three point from Extreme Motor Works and just installed it. this week.      Rick

Looks good!   I am building my wife her own plow day machine.   She got herself a Cub Cadet 1811 and plans to use her xmas money this year for the parts to put a sleeve hitch on it from xtreme motor works as he  makes the lower bracket for the alum rear ends that ties into the axle tube bolts to keep it all together.  I have my Deutz Allis scut to plow with.  Mike

I purchased the 3 pt. unit from them.  I checked out one at Ball Hollow this  spring and knew I wanted one.    They provide a quality product.  Rick

I have tried the one tractor show and once she gets on it, I dont see it again unless she runs it out of fuel or breaks something.  She couldn't understand what was so fun about plowing, till she did it once!     Mike
