The #8 plow is "period correct" with your H. I suspect you might be younger than the ages of that plow and tractor, but to this old fellow that plowed with the same equipment many years ago there is no greater satisfaction of plowing with that rig at a plow day. The rope-pull plow clutch, the twisted clevis on the hitch, the rope fastened to the seat (with a clip to come loose easily if the hitch trips loose on a rock), the H purring away with a full load, and a trailer plow with 2 handles and a "life of it"s own"....it really brings back history. I can plow with a hydraulic plow, even a newer plow, but it just doesn"t seem right with an old H or M. If I was a kid when the number series of tractors came along and they used mostly hydraulic plows then I"m sure I"d love plowing today with that equipment.
My tip for the day: Hook up the #8 and think back to your grandfather"s time and what it was like in those days.

PS That #60 plow was a good one for it"s day and will bring good dollars if you decide to sell it. I will admit the #60 is much better in cornstalks, but we try to avoid that with our annual plow day.
