Gonna be really slow, with only 2x14" (maybe 2x12").

Not at all sure you could ever rig that plow to work with your JD 70.

Anyone around you have a decent larger plow.? It can handle 3x14", 3x16" or 4x14" with no problems. (Mounted or Semi-Mounted).

I'd sure like to see a 70 pull 4-14's in alfalfa with "no problems." The whole thing sounds like a potential train wreck to me.

Don't discount those old Diesels, they have a huge amount of grunt. The only way I can tell if my 720 is getting a good load is when it starts showing just a little smoke, yet it still has not lost any RPM.

I'm the odd nut trying to get started. I have a few guys I could ask that have 4 or 5 bottom rollover plows (too big for the 70). The field as I said is only 5 acres and has a 12 foot gate. The guys with the real equipment just can't get in and its not worth their time.
Maybe I'm worrying about nothing and should just use the chisel plow. With 12 inch sweeps it does a pretty good/clean job and I suppose it will not hurt anything if some of the alfalfa survives.

Use the chisel.Go over about 3 times in alternateing directions.If you can,try to go a bit deeper each time.IIRC,you're in flood irrigated country.You should try to bury the 'trash' for better water flow.I'm sure someone close will plow it for you.Just ask.It may cost a couple hundred....Then you can do the rest.As was said the 70(it has MORE than enough ponies), lacking draft/depth control will be tough(a challenge) to use on a mounted plow.But you can use a chain to hold the plow to a constant depth.I've had to do that sort of thing when I've pulled a 3 bottom rollover with my Super M.Worked great!Plowed level and even while supported.

I think that's what I'll do. Time is always an issue for me. The Chisel/806 will do the field in about 1 1/2 hours, will not hurt or use much more fuel to do the field twice. It will get disced once to bury trash and smooth it up before planting, last pass I pull an old spike tooth harrow behind the disc.
Thanks for the advice.

That has always been the problem with the Models prior to the "20 Series", they needed a Depth Wheel (gauge Wheel) to control plowing depth.

A decent "Pull-Type" plow would work fine too. Only thing about using one is getting used to larger End-Lands because of the added length..and backing it when plowing off the ends..

I assume you will not need to have a Dead Furrow, with only 5 acres, just turn it all toward the middle, to keep the field level..
