It really is a cultivator, not a breaking plow. As I said initially I
used it on a field that had recently seen steel. Plow may imply
the wrong connotation. Main purpose was to pulverize the soil
and lay down a seed bed.

On the comparison with the JD I made, I did state with this plow
(cultivator), not anything else. Maybe it will help in
understanding what I said if I mentioned that I didn't run the
"cultivator" as fast as was possible. I ran it at a moderate speed
where I got the best soil reaction. The main intent of my
comment was the fact that newer equipment was able to get the
job done, in a fuel efficient manner.

The ripper does sink down to the the yellow brackets above the
black ripper blades if I have been over the ground a previous
trip. I have my 3rd member long enough to tilt it at about a 10
degree angle. That is not apparent in the picture. As I said, on
the first pass the rippers only went about half way down in the
hard, dry clay. On the second pass, making a diamond pattern
in the soil, I was able to get down to the yellow. l took the
picture because it was on the tractor and I had to get it off to
move my cultivator and since there were some discussions about
a ripper before I thought I'd show it.

I have been wanting a picture of my bull to hang on my wall
adjacent to the pic I have of him when I first bought him. So I
got the pic for the wall and since it was part of the other pics on
the camera I thought I'd add it. Thanks for the comment. What's
interesting is that he is from the herd I sold a guy up the road
and when I decided to get a few cows again, he was available.
The guy I bought him from told me that he had him scheduled to
be cut the day after I said I wanted him....just in time.

I added the baler primarily to show where I added the pressure
gauge which told me what you had told me would happen and it
