I got one of my gardens plowed yesterday with the 1050. I made about 5 passes when the lift lever on the hydraulic pump started moving on its own. I knew right away what it was, The return spring snapped :wallbanging:

Since I didnt have a spare spring, I had to pull the pump off the 850 to finish the job.

I plowed about 1/2 my garden a few days ago. My tomatoes kinda crawled out into the garden and are still producing a lot. So I'll wait till frost gets them, the finish the entire garden. I love to plow!

My nephew and I loaded 6 pickup loads of horse manure from a local horse barn and dumped it on my garden this weekend, after I had plowed it with my plow and the hitch I made for the 1456. I then used my Sears GT18 with a dozer blade to spread it around (it did a great job). Then I used the tiller on the back of the 1456 to work it all in. I kinda want to go out and plow it again, just so I can use the tiller some more!
