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 did.
