    New plough 2018

    When I ploughed it last year it had not been ploughed for about twenty year there was a lot of rubbishy weeds in it still the same, but little bit not so hard now I believe when I rotavate it in the drier weather I will get more depth still .Thank you

    My new attempt at making my plough work

    Hi all I have reached plan Z I am now on plan A again I have used my Gutbrod plough beam and married it to the BMB frog and board only need to work on the skimmer or disc I am also looking at a longer mouldboard to fit the Gutbrod frog the board I have on is 22 inches from back to front the new one is 39 inches from back to front Two plans on the go if one works I will be happy

    My new attempt at making my plough work

    Hi all This is my new attempt at making my plough work The problem with my Gutbrod plough is the mouldboard is not long enough for competition match ploughing although I have great success with it .Think it is time for a change the photos are of a mock up of how I would like the plough to look. I will have nine inches more beam giving me space for a disc and a skimmer, the mould board is 12 inches longer and should make a nicer furrow only time will tell once I am happy with settings it will all be welded up

    My new attempt at making my plough work

    Hi all Had my new plough in the ground today for the first not very bonny but a start has been made Need to make mouldboard tilt and check for plough for running parallel with the tractor but in principal it is OK both things can be sorted seems easy to pull the ground was not the best it was barley straw that had been cultivated but I have made a start, and happy it can be altered to work well
