    That 2 bottom plow would use 30-40 hp, a 100 hp tractor should pull a 4 bottom plow.

    While more power is fine, you might havr a little trouble settingit up, plow will be cat 1 hitch, tractor will be cat 2, the wheel on the tractor will be a little fat to fit in the furrow, and so forth. You can make it work, but it will be a little off.

    Typically plow, disk, and harrow.

    You will have to add bushings to make the Cat2 fit the Cat 1 pins on that plow.

    The biggest concern I have with the moldboard plow you show is these are fixed with no shear bolt or trip mechanism on them. You will be tempted with that size tractor to run fast which it will easy and if you catch one of those unmovable objects in the ground the plow may not take the shock and you may not fair well either. Depending on the disk that comes with a 100 hp tractor you may not need to use the plow.
