    Your tractor should have plenty of traction especially if you use 4 wd. I used to pull two discs mounted on wheels attached to the drawbar with a lot lighter 2 wd tractor. I would think the 3 point model would roll over a stump pretty easily. That would be my choice for a breaking plow. Never thought much about a mouldboard.

    That is a garden making plow there!
    It will flip the soil over and bury whatever is growing under neath a layer of dirt. Old timer that lived near me years ago had one for his 8N and made a huge garden every year, started off turning everything under. He made terraces to hold runoff on hills by plowing in both directions throwing up a 'levee' and with practice it will invert the soil completly.
    Plows like that are hard to come by and someone would probably pay a fair price for it to turn soil.

    I don't really know because it was all part of a 'deal' that a friend of mine worked out. I posted more about the price in this thread:

    Thanks for the info! That's good to know that I should have enough power/traction. I won't be able to try it out for at least a week or so, and after that, depends on what I'll be doing for Thanksgiving, but I'll find an area I can tear up and give it a test

    I would love to hear how well it works for you. My soil is pretty rocky so I'm worried a tiller would be just a waste of time and a moldboard plow may have issues with the rocks, roots, and ledge around me. If you decide you don't need it let me know, I would be interested.

    Crazyal,
    I can't imagine a disc plow would work any better than your Case 580 backhoe and 450 Dozer!
    I could sure use a dozer on my land!

    I thought about just digging a foot down with the BH but thought it would be slow getting on and off to remove rocks and the dozer has a couple of leaks that may not help the garden grow. But most of all I have a 3 pt hitch and ag tires just begging to play in the dirt.

    I built a smaller scale one from scratch for my garden tractor:

    Works great in the right soil conditions. Hard soil it does not work.

    Wow that is pretty impressive!

    What did you use for paint? I'd like to have this sandblasted and prime and paint it, but I really have no idea what type of paint to use. I assume some sort of heavy duty epoxy paint or something?
