What kind of soil do you have that your passing on the 12? What kind of tractor are you pulling the plow with?

Pulling plow with a 1957, to35 ferguson.
Problem, I trying to solve is the mf62 12" plows I have choke up so bad on garden debris.

I was looking for a larger plow with more throat height, at least that was my plan.

What I want is a set of 2x16" plows, I have found both a set of John Deere and IH plows in this size.

During the winter months I will find a set of plows, however a tiller would be great, but outside of my garden budget.

We had the same problem with a field that hadn't been worked in 40 year. We were using a 2 bottom 14" dearborn and it keep jammimg up inbtween the moldboards. Tried with coulters and without them and still jammed up with debri. A guy down the road said I get my JD with the 2 bottom and show you boys how it's done. It was the same, keep jammimg up. We finnally bought up my friends 1 bottom 16" and everything went smooth. Nice roll over with no flop back. Sure it took a lot longer but worked great.
Another guy told me we should have disc the field before plowing. Will try this next spring then see if the 2 bottom works better.

Over the years I have tried bushhoging the grass, disking the grass and just leaving the corn and grass standing.

My best effort plowing under the garden debris was with a double ford 16" trip plow.

I just finished plowing a 10 acre garden with a dearborne 2-14 plow. The viney trash plugs it but it works good about 90% of the time. They plug worse if you plow too deep. I brush hog the whole thing before I start. My disc seems too light to really cut the heavy trash up.
