Nice furrows indeed!  On the second picture, what is all that hitch gear on the back of your tractor?  Can you give us a tutorial?

Hi

The ploughs belonging the tractor are called Butterfly ploughs on one way ploughs but if and when you are ploughing in a competition you use only one plough

I found when you lifted the plough it swung towards the furrow making a narrow furrow

I made a bar with rings on it so that you could hang the plough straight up and down this gives you better controlNew hydraulics on George.JPG Lift arms.JPG

   First time i have seen a plow like that.  i like it.

I need a LOT of practice to get a clean straight furrow like that.  

 

    Good luck in your competition.    Rick
