One question I have had since I bought my S14H has been can the hydro transmission handle plowing with a 12" plow? I have always been lead to believe that hydros were not good for tillage, but this is the first tractor I have had with a cat0 3point.

Keep it clean so it cools efficiently and it will plow all day long.

I find that the issue is traction, depending on soil, without wheel weights. I have 150 lbs in each rear wheel. If you happen to have turf tires, throw on a set of chains.

I heard that properly weighted, pulls a 12" real nice. Sadly, i haven't been able to try it myself yet. One of my dreams that always seems out of reach.

That will be nice. Standard size or a little bigger?
