I have become so dependent on my Bolens conversion. If for some reason it needs attention it becomes priority #1. With my bad back I can't function without it. The time and effort that went into building this tractor has already more than paid for itself. I have another loader and am strongly considering building another one. For me there are many rewards for successfully completing one of these projects.
It's Fun too :smile1:

I'm convinced I need one of these! I just can't understand why they don't use their spinner plow, but instead back down the furrow. Every pass made not turning dirt is a waste of fuel.

Yeah, does seem like a bit of a waste. But who knows?

As short a length as he's plowing, maybe he can back up to the other end faster than he can get both the tractor and plow turned over. Or, maybe the plow was broken and couldn't turn oner.

Still looks odd though.

He has been plowing that way for along time. The other plow is all rusty. Maybe the tractor doesn't have dual hydraulics.
