In the midwest the ground has been super dry the last several years, so getting a plow to go in generally depending on how the top link was adjusted. It has to be cranked in so that the point of the plow is forced down.
Other choice is to pile all your junk on the plow to get extra weight on the plow to go in. I started with a 3 bottom, the a two bottom, and no luck going in ground, so got the old 1 bottom pull type. It really went in, but had trouble pulling it. Those big chunks were a real nightmare to disk. Got it worked down and got a good crop of wheat growing on it.
Maybe it was the spinning tires that loosen up so of the ground.

I guess I got the cards stacked against me with this one Stormin. You win the local cigar! I bought a stripped down one years ago just for the heck of it. No coulter, no fancy top link. It was welded to plow right hand only, I freed the left one up, got a tractor supply top link, a coat of Rustoleum, that's all. Boy that one can plow circles around this almost factory 'Dearborn-Lindeman'. This coo coo clock top link don't get any longer or shorter- even if the weather changes! The coulter's side to side swing isn't much to write home about either. Maybe a good thing John Deere bought the outfit? This patch of dirt was hard as a rock here too.
Doesn't seem to be a popular idea on these forums, but certain implements for certain soil conditions seem to be why there has been lots of new ideas and better mousetraps since people were pulling a tree branch with an ox....
