I have a 911 4 16 pull type that I use in the heavy clay. The guy I brought it from said he had heavy clay and it rarely tripped . I put in my ground and they were tripped more than in the ground. brought it up to the shop and cranked the springs as tight as they would go. Seemed to do the trick. Clay has been hard lately with the dry weather. I'm pulling it with a 3588 2+2 down in 2nd gear at times. even then the tractor would come to stop and sit and spin. That was last fall and this spring when it was awfully dry. But even in those conditions, the bottoms would stay down most of the time. Is it possible that the springs lose their strength over time? Otherwise crank them down all the way and see what happens.

I went on the melroe website and they gave a number in ND for for plow parts , Morris rod weeder company . But that number was disconnected. Called Melroe customer service and they gave me the same number. Goggled morris rod weeder and seems like that co is all in Canada now. Have'nt tried to contact them there. Broke the bracket that holds the onland wheel axel to the frame. in the process of making one now. Don't know about the p shape piece that 4020 deerboy talks about. Possibly that could be worn?
