You will need to get a lot bigger tractor then that to even consider pulling one Minimum 90 horse for a 5 shank, pulled a 7 shank IHcase with a 966 and that was enough.

Well I guess thats why you drove AC and I drove IH I am located in northeastern ILL and we went a heck of a lot deeper than 6" and I guarantee that in black dirt and clay not bragging.

Alkali when dry is like ripping concrete, when wet it's like grease. The saying around here is you have about 15 minutes between too wet and too dry. We were testing electronic draft control systems, and the brand of tractor really didn't make much difference for what we were trying to learn. And we were going a lot deeper than 6' also. Personally, I never had the chance to operate it in the field, but was involved in making and installing equipment on the tractor.

That is some tough soil to sample. It sticks to the probe different than WI soil. Neither one was real easy last summer.

You may be able to pull 2 shanks, but I wouldn't count on it. The farmers aren't chisel plowing because your soil is really heavy. They are chiseling because it is 2013. :lol:

Rigid shanks have a shear bolt rather than a spring that resets them. Kevin B could plow all day and never think about a problem. People with hills and rocks wouldn't even think about buying one.

When I worked in the Cessna engineering lab, we had an AC 7040 (140 engine hp) and pulled a 7 shank 3 point. Got into some alkali soil and dropped 2 shanks off that. You might pull 5 if you only go 6" deep.
