Fellow member, MRMD, called me on Thursday. He had seen aa flyer about an FFA plow day in Emden, IL. scheduled for today. We made some quick plans and decided to meet them there. It was a straight shot west for about two hours. Turned out that we were the only garden tractors to show up. I talked to a few of the other participants. They had garden tractors and plows , but it hadn't occurred to them to bring them to a plow day. Hopefully we changed that.
Once the sun came out and the wind died down a little it wasn't a bad day to be plowing.
I had the tractor/plow set up in the shop using the blocks under the tires and squaring up the plow. However when I dropped it in the dirt I couldn't get a good furrow. And I kept building up a lot of trash. I took the plow off and repositioned the three point arms and adjusters. Plowing got better but I was still having problems getting a nice furrow, and had problems keeping the tractor in the furrow.
However I got some seat time and got to play in the dirt!
It was good to see Mike and Chris again. The wife took a few pictures. She even got a couple of Mike and his Allis Chalmers.
