That's a very nice looking bull. Your tractor is very nice also.
I stand by my original statement that a 57 pto HP utility type tractor will not/can not pull a 10 ft chisel plow very deep if at all.
On what you call a chisel to me it's a coiled spring cultivator more like a field cultivator than a chisel. I think you'll beak the foot pieces off long before you get the sweeps in untilled soil very deep much less 10"- 12"s. Field cultivators are much easier to pull than a real chisel plow.
Also another misconception I've encountered on plowing depth is the operators inability to accurately measure the actual plowing depth.
I don't recall commenting on your Hay King pasture renovator thread but I think that the 4 shank is the correct size for your tractor's hp. But I think you'll need to raise the colters up a few inches to get the shanks to a 10-12" depth
The right type of disk plow(true disk breaking plow) will penetrate your clay soil.
