As a kid I used one of these on a 45 for many hours. A 45 will not even know it is pulling one, could plow in third at 1/3 throttle. Unless there were a lot of rocks, then you have to go slow and hope you can get the hand clutch out before you shear one of the 5/8 bolts or the main 3/4" bolt that holds each plow to the main frame. Anyway, here is how you use one. At the end of the row you lift the plow, turn the wheels sharp in the correct direction, hit the brake for the turn you are making, turn, back up in line with the next furrow, reach down with your left hand and release the locking lever to spin the plow, garb the thing and give it a spin until it locks in again, lower it and away you go. You will learn to do the whole turn is seconds. The only time you have to get off the tractor is if you hit a rock and shear a bolt. Don't know if you have rocks, if you do have your hand on the clutch lever ready to instantly release it hopefully before you shear the bolt. Carry some of the correct size and length in the tool box. Make sure that the full diameter of the bolt, not the threads, is taking the shear, by getting long enough bolts. The 3/4" bolt can be a bear to change as it can partially shear over time and then let go and the partially sheared section for the opposite plow will not want to drive out of the hole. You have to loosen a lot to get it out. You might use a higher grade bolt here and a lesser grade for the 5/8" bolt, that way you will probably not have to change the 3/4 very often if ever. The plow never gave a bit of problem, always worked well. Has a couple of grease fittings on the spinner bearings if I remember too.

Today's Featured Article - Identifying Tractor Smells - by Curtis Von Fange. We are continuing our series on learning to talk the language of our tractor. Since we canít actually talk to our tractors, though some of the older sect of farmers might disagree, we use our five physical senses to observe and construe what our iron age friends are trying to tell us. We have already talked about some of the colors the unit might leave as clues to its well-being. Now we are going to use our noses to diagnose particular smells. ELECTRICAL SMELLS ... [Read Article]
