How am I gunna win next week at the Dundas Plowing Match here on PEI with plowing like that. ???
Old sod never plowed, but that's just terrible. Weird how some times I plow fairly good, then I end up doing the likes of that!!
What did I do wrong, ideas please.

Noel

I tryed doing a split crown, where all the sod is cut under the crown. Then plowed as normal.

It looks as though the only problem is the way it rolls over. Is that right?

Like Kenny siad, pick the speed up till it does roll over.  Looks like your right at that point, just grab another gear and go.

If you were in our soil I'd say you were too shallow. Won't roll if your not deep enough.

I thought I was to deep. Or not wide enough. Jumpins, its got me bewildered. One thing I never do is plow fast. But have got very nice plowing before, with the slow speed I use. I'm going to try it again tomorrow, but in a different location, twenty miles away, and a different tractor, same plow. Will post another thread tomorrow, hopefully.

I agree with Chris, plow a little faster and deeper and should roll over better.

If the soil is too dry your dreaming! It will never roll sod over it just shears off the sod and pulls it along.
That soil looks as dry as flour. Try to go a bit deeper and a touch faster. Once I get the top folding under I go as fast as I can with out throwing the sod over the last roll. This keeps the top fairly smooth and even.
Upon closers looking, it looks as if you don't have enough depth to be able to roll the sod in?

A little deeper and faster
The faster will help with inertia, the deeper will maybe grab a little moisture and also the next pass, you'll be tipped more.
