Here's some pics of the plow day my father and I went to this past sunday. My father brought his 51' 8n with 14" 2bottom 3pt plow and I brought my 49' JD B with 14" 2 bottom trailer plow. I also brought my MF12 with brinly plow. I was disappointed that there were no other garden tractors there, never took the MF12 off the truck. We still had a great time, there were about 12 tractors there and a team of horses plowing.394.jpg

The soil looks almost smooth enough after plowing to plant corn as-is!

The soil was very good and the old John Deere trailer plow performed very well. I had almost gotten rid of it because the rims were rusted threw. I ended up cutting the centers (hubs) out of the rims and welding them into donut spare tires. It worked great and the wheels ran surprisingly true. Here's some more pics.

Looks like fun, thank you for posting the pics. I can't believe how nice the soil looks after plowing. I love seeing horse drawn equipment. They have horse pull competitions at out PA Farm Show building every year.

Looks like you had a great day:smile1: You did a good job of saving the plow with your wheel fabrication. Sure was fantastic to see a team of horses at the plow day. Thanks for the pictures.
