    What are the wheel spacings on your tractors. If they are significantly different the plows may not work to well.

    Coulters are nice in trashy conditions or sod. They help reduce plugging from trash and help keep the forrow straighter in Sod.

    Gauge wheels are almost a must if you don't have draft control.

    The problem I have finding a plow around here is that none have the culters or gauge wheels

    Paid $495 from a dealer. This spring I'll have pics in action. Plowed about 3 acres last year and everything shinned up nicely. Right now it's uncovered and I greased up everything that was shiney for the winter. I agree that I found a jewel. For the OP do you have a float control on your Massey? I think he'll be able to pull 3x12 or 2x16 easily. If he can find a 3 bottom that he can unbolt the last unit, he should seriously consider that as an option. Can always put it back on if and when needed for a larger hp tractor in the future.

    As a kid I learned on a 2 bottom behind an 8N. But soon graduated to your type plow behind and 861 Ford. I thought I was in heaven. So much faster than the ole 8N and 2 bottom. Thanks for sharing the picture, brings back lots of memories!!!

    I started on a 2n with the 2x14. That was 53yrs ago! Of all the dairy farm work, plowing was and still is my favorite farm job. Looked forward to it every fall.. I need to ask my brother, who has the farm now, what his favorite is.

    Our neighbor was, and the next generation still is, a big farmer. He had the first 4020 I ever saw. I still distinctly remember hearing him doing field work. He had a fender mounted radio!!!!! You could hear that radio clear as a bell a mile away!!! I was sooooooo jealous!!! But then,,, that's why none of us can hear today....

    Not to stray too far off track, but...

    I'm running a single bottom plow on my L3130 HST with 31 HP. It does fine in the sandy loam we have in most of the pasture, but there are areas it rises to the surface and just scratches the ground. The plow is very light - I'd estimate 100 lbs or so as I can literally pick it up myself. Is the weight of the plow a factor in the areas it skips to the surface? Would a heavier plow stay "grounded"?
