I've been looking at the plow (link below) for a while. It might be the right size for the 400, but I see what you mean by clearance under the beam. There isn't much there. Also, if four bottoms are too many for the soil at the horse farm, couldn't I just take the last bottom off? Or does it not work that way with those older plows?

In my soil, an 85+ hp tractor got worn out fast pulling a 4-16 plow. I now run a 140hp tractor on a 4-18 plow, and that seems to be a good match.

Obviously I have kinda tough soils. :)

You need to be able to move the tailwheel up to be behind the 3rd bottom if you drop one off. Without looking too close or knowing much, it appears that would be possible?

A-ha! I think I found one (link below), but I may have to act fast. The brochure I have on it says there's 21" fore & aft clearance & 27" from backbone to share. Plenty of room for 10" plowing. Sounds like just what I'm looking for. The one in the link below seems to have been dropped on it's tail wheel & I don't think a new lift rod is going to be easy to find.
