Well the last time we used the trip plow it would go down but not back up. Worked on it a few times to no avail. The last time I worked on it we didn't get a chance to try it out. At the old house I'd have to haul it down to a field to try. Colin and I decided to give it a shot today and it worked perfectly. Our new neighbors dad stopped by over the last weekend and plowed up the garden but he had troubles with it and it didn't go to deep. So we decided to put the 861 and the little genius to work. As you can see we could use some rain up here. Just a tad dusty. Did enjoy the seat time though.









And the clean up of the large chunks of sod after discing.

Absolutely. My drive could us a good rollin :cool: :cool: She might even be able to convince my daughter to hop on the big tractors. Just got her on the riding mower since moving out here.
I really did enjoy the plowing. Today I hogged the tractors. Usually the boys do most of the tractor work. After plowing I used the Farmall C to disc it (another post). Was a fun day.

Looks good. What will you be planting? Do you also have a set of cultivators for the ford or the farmall?

My wife picked up a small variety of seed. I know we'll be doing corn and taters for sure. We like alot of veggies. Like to can and freeze. Will probably take us a few years to get it all figured out.
No cultivators except the five of us for now. Would like to find some for the farmall though. Just haven't seen a set for sale since I bought it.

Looks like it was working good for you. I put the Ferguson two bottom on the 9n today and realized after two furrows that I had forgotten what I had learned last fall. Only had an hour so I didn't manage to screw up too much field. Tomorrow should go better now that my memory has returned. If I ever manage to find some Cockshutt points I will try my fathers wheeled plow.

Ron,
It might be easier to find cults for the 3pt then on the C. A good set of dearborn spring cults went for $130 yesterday at the auction. Just adjust your PA's and front wheels to strattle the rows.I had a tool bar for the C I scrapped because nobody wanted it. I have cultivator mount and tool bars for a manual lift for a farmall A I can't sell because nobody wants them. I had them on CL, YT and ebay twice and not a single bid. If they were for a super A I could have sold them ten times over. I even asked the guy who bought the farmall A at the auction yesterday if he would be interested in them. He said no that he was going to put a belly mower on it.
