Where are the guys who pull 4-16's buried 12" deep with their Farmall M's in road gear?

706 should be able to pull 3-16's pretty easily in most ground. Even if the 140 is a 4-bottom, you should be able to remove the rear bottoms and move the gauge wheel up to the 3rd bottom, if it has one.

I used to pull 3x14s with my was a good match.3rd or 4th gear.hay ground would take every bit of 3rd gear.Stay with a 3 bottom.A 140 is a lot of plow for a 706.

depends... the 140 was available in 3 or 4 bottom, and i believe 16" or 18" bottoms. my experience is with a 4X16 and that is a good load for a 986. when pulling a clodbuster, we used a green 4630 and that was also a pretty good match. both cases plowing around 5 mph.

(for bystanders: the 140 is a rollover plow)

around these parts an 806 was considered a 4-plow tractor and a 706, a 3-plow tractor

so... if your soils are anything like here, you"re good to go with a 3 bottom; if it"s a 4, you can probably do it, just slower, maybe not as deep. either way, put all the weight you can on the front end. with 1200# on the 986, it"s still easy for the front to come up on ya
