    Default Plow size/weight

    Hello friends!

    My machine is a Lamborghini R1 40, as you can see in this thread: http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/o...i-r1-40-a.html

    I've been using the tractor for about 2 months. No major problems whatsoever. But recently I decided to purchase a used plow (see attached image). It weighs about 400kg (880 pounds).

    My surprise was that the hydraulic system could barely lift the implement. And it was incapable exert full force to turn around the thing (it has a spring-firing system).

    In spite of all of that, the tractor pulled the plow in easy terrain, but it certainly was at the limit of the machine.

    My question is, for this machine, do you think that a 400kg plow is too heavy? The tractor weighs about 1600kg (tyres filled with water). Could it be that the hydraulic pump is defective?

    I think it may be too big for your machine. I pull an 800 pound disc with my 70hp tractor (bigger tractor, and a disc provides less resistance).

    Yeah, I think that I need a smaller plow for my tractor.

    I found this video: Aratura autunnale 2010 - YouTube

    I think that plow would be perfect for me.
