With a U302 there is good news/bad news.

The good news is, you have enough tractor to handle the weight of a 3240, 3241 or a 3242 three bottom plow. A Cat 1 hitch would work O.K., but if you could find one with a Cat 2 hitch it would work better.

The bad news is, as you may or may not know, your tractor has load OR depth control, but not both. You will need a guage wheel on the plow to do a decent job of plowing.

Plowed many acres with a U302 and a 3 bottom mounted plow without a gauge wheel. It held as consistent depth as any Oliver I have seen. If you wanted to go deeper you set the stop farther down or vise versa. I can't see where you would need a gauge wheel...especially for what you are describing.

Thanks for the info. I did not know about the draft control problem. Is this just an issue with a full mount plow? I would guess because the draft control raises and lowers the front of the plow, which of course effects the rear? I have never plowed with a full mount, and haven't plowed period for probably 25 years which is when Grandpa, and my Uncle stopped plowing. This will just be a plow to use in the garden, maybe a few small fields, and on plow days. I have found a 3241 set on 16's not too far from me.

The 3 point draft control problem is with most all Moline tractors, as well as some other makes. Thank fully not with all Olivers.

You will need a operators manual. Also remember you will be able to change the width of cut as well as reduce the number of bottoms to two. That is what is nice about Oliver plows.

Sounds like your in for a learning experence.

I didn't realize you could change width of cut also. So,a 14" plow could be moved to 16"?
