I may just stick with moldboard plowing, first because it is cheaper to buy one, but also because the tiles are only 14-15" deep in spots (still some old clay tiles) and I don't want to create more work on replacing those. Another oddball question though- was there ever such a thing as a 5 bottom plow with an onland hitch? That would probably be pushing too narrow to run an onland hitch is my thoughts. And I don't think if my MF1130 would pull 6 in our ground.

I hope that's not a big problem, just probed out my old concrete tile on a 40 to add more this spring, and found some was only 18-20 inches deep.

Other places I get to 15 inches too, replaced 35 feet that was all cracked in.

Also got a soil saver for this fall.....

We will see, if it ever rains I guess.

Pretty happy with the soil saver, the chisel plow didnt do much, this thing did something.

The plow seems more dangerous to the tile, drving in the furrow you are 8 inches closer to the tile, with a lot of pull and weight.

I suppose that's why you are interested in an on land hitch.

The soil saver is pretty good, need to chop or disk stalks still, but it was worlds better than the old little chisel, that plugged up easy in chopped stalks....

MF 880 was an on land hitch, it could be set for furrow too. Using the correct three point set up(the plow must have a true three point hitch, not just the lower arms)you should pull 8x16.

I have a john deere 3200 that you can adjust for in land or in furrow. You can't run duals when it's set up for on land anyway so I just run it in the furrow. It's 5 18' and it's all my 115 hp 4320 wants. Also pull a 7 shank glenco chisel plow with it with duals. Handles about the same. I think your massey is about the same hp. Just giving some comparisons.

There probably was a hitch made for the trailer plows as the Deere parts books list them for even the 3 bottom plows but they were made for the crawler type tractors that had to run on land. So they would be very hard to find, a semi mount that you are thinking about I do not know. Neighbor pulled a 7 bottom with his 1100 MF.
