    Default A question for plowing experts. (coverboard)

    I have managed to find coverboards and all of the necessary brackets for my plow.
    I know what they do and I know that they are not always necessary when plowing but what I don't know is...
    Do they change (increase) the power required power to pull the plow or would it be noticeable.
    I've also located almost everything I need to put the front coulter on my plow.

    After you find the stuff, all it takes is money honey.

    (Now if I can just find the skimmers for my plow...)

    From all I've ever seen, you won't be able to notice ANY difference in how a plow pulls WITH coverboards as opposed to without. You WILL be able to see the difference in the results though.
    There are three kinds of men;
    1.) The ones that learn by reading
    2.) The few who learn by observation
    3.) The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.

    I wish they had been on my plow when I plowed this
