    Are you plowing the same size lands as the larger tractors? Here in Ont. the antique classes ( mounted and drag plows ) plow lands that are 50ft X 200ft. You don't see many garden tractors at county matches but will get the occasional one or two out. Not sure of the land size for the big boys. Mostly in the USA they have "plow days" where they just plow some land for the fun of it and follow behind each other til they run out of light or land or both. I have never seen a notice for competitive plowing down there but it might exist. 

   Your pics are excellent and the plowing all looks good. Your finish with "George" looks very good in the picture. How did it score? Do you use an opening split like here? 

    Thanks for posting the pics.......Dave

I can plow straight furrows easy enough, its that last pass that leaves a furrow that I hate to see. I love looking at a beautifully plowed field! I just need to figure out how to end with any trench or tire tracks in my field LOL! With out discing.
Every couple of years i like to deep plow to bury trash and weed seed.
Now I have the power and weight to pull a 24" plow as deep as It will go! Just need to find a 24" plow LOL thats single bottom and cat.2 hitch..DOH!
