It will work fine unless, as mentioned by Doug, the soil is heavy and you are plowing sod. We used to pull 3/16's in NE Ohio in clover and alfalfa okay. As Doug also said you can remove the center bottom and move the rear one up and plow with two if you get lugged down too much. Assuming an AC snap coupler plow that is. We plowed wide open in 2nd in the heavy stuff.
