    Default setting the controls on McCormick CX 105 to plow


    I inherited the McCormick tractor and have tried to disc and drag a field to level it.
    I can not make the disc go into the ground more than half to one inch. (6 foot disc)
    I have read to operators manual and can not figure out all the controls.

    Today I hooked up a gopher machine and it did the same thing.

    How do you set the controls to adjust the depth of the tool?

    Default Re: setting the controls on McCormick CX 105 to plow

    A couple of suggestions:
    Make sure your draft control is disengaged. If it's very sensitive, it may be lifting your three-point hitch as your disc begins to cut in. You won't need draft control with a tractor that size and a small disc like that.
    Make sure your top link is long enough to allow the disc to actually drop farther into the soil.
    If the ground is hard, a lightweight 6' disc isn't going to penetrate well into undisturbed soil. You might need to add weight and/or wait for rain with much of Texas.
