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" 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.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

On a slow moving old Farmall manure isn't much of an issue... You just kind of chew through it.
It's when you're plowing at 6MPH with the 1066 and you hit a patch... Can you say "sudden stop?"

What manure? Our host farmers for our annual plow day are lined up a year in advance. They know better than to spread manure where we will have at least 150 spectators walking around watching our old tractors at work.
Next April we will be plowing in 70 acres of wheat stubble. Last April we had 55 old tractors plowing and 5 more following with disks, culti-packers, etc. More than 150 people are expected to show up next year to watch. We have 3-4 people-mover trailers that are busy all day. Local 4-H club serves all the food and drinks....they made $600.00 last year and their leader says the kids love doing this and it teaches them how to count money, make change and work with people.
Our rules are: 1. Tractors have to be 1959 models or older. 2. No hot rodding or tail gating. 3. No passengers on tractors. 4. We insist you have a nice day watching and participating in history.
We have become a local tradition in our area.
We charge the tractor drivers $5 to enter for paying for porta potties, we sell an excellent video of the day for $10 and they sell like hotcakes; the profits go to local food banks and other ag-related charities.
Local farmer is now flying a helicopter and we will hire him for aerial shots of our big day next April.
You are not far about coming to watch us? Bring your camera! Ask for Lowell.
