    I could probably adjust the automatic switch a little to turn on a little sooner/higher.
    But I never really saw the need for the automatic when the switch is so easy to just flip on/off when I need to.
    Yea, I don't get what that auto on is even for.

    Nice job and definitely fertile looking soil.

But with no clutch and the PTO in essence engaging automaticly as you lower the 3pt, how smooth was that whole operation? It has me worried a bit. Thanks.

    PS.. there are people around here that would kill or die for that kind of beautiful dirt.!
    The pto engagement was smooth with no real jolt at around 1200 rpm. I did slip up once and it was near full t and wasn't a bang so to say, but you know it was on for sure. You are gonna be so happy with you new tractor! And we are lucky, the dirt in parts of Sussex county is so rich especially in my hometown. An acre there could yield as high as 10:1 vs western Sussex county land.

    That's a nice field and some good looking soil. I'd love soil like that in NC. A tiller is one thing I don't have yet, they seem to do a great job. Do you plant seed in the flat beds or hill them up now? What do you use to combat weeds in between the corn stalks. My single row cultivator does well in the row but is of no use between stalks.

    Ncnurseryman, I go flat primarily and too use a one row for weed control. Now in the plant spacing, a labor of love here: a husqvarna 128ldx with a small tiller boom and by hand go between each. Takes a little but it's relatively fast as compared to other methods. As market buyers here are lookin more and more toward organic, I'm going to run some separate from standard farm practice and compare the yield results vs time invested. Organic corn brings a pretty penny from what I've seen. It will be probably about a 2 yr trial before I decided to go o or stay.

    Jpm, luckily the only rocks are little pebbles of broken asphalt next to the road and near the entrances. Really blessed to have such nice farm land.
