After watching plowing most of the day now, I am anxious to put a rig together for my own use. This plow has been in our grove for over 30 yrs and I have never used it. I think it and the 430 will make a good pair. The plow seem OK but does need a new tire on the gauge wheel. A 4 by 9 in, that seems like a rather odd size, hope they are still available. After we get some crop off we'll put this little guy to work and hopefully post some pics after we get everything dialed in. Rod.

Hey, Rod! I have a good used tire for that! Let me know if you need it. New ones are available too.

That is a nice team Rod, bet it was fun to get the "430" out and strutting its stuff. Nice little hum from her when she settled down to work. Good post.

Dad's well worn out Case 430 diesel (with lots of engine blow by) did fine with Oliver 2-16 mounted plows back in the day. Even plowed some with turf tires until we later found a set of cleated tires of an ole junked out combine. The combine rims were just stamped steel and the tractor had no added weight. Was not plowing in easy soil either.

That 430 sure was a diesel fuel miser. Kinda wish I still had it today.

Rod, you will love the way the plow works, I have a 3x 14 in the barn that my dad used on the 611B. It is like the one Tom has. Enjoy the picyures and hope to see more.

Neat set up! It would be nice to see more CASE rigs plowing. Do you have coulters for it, the old plows aren't very forgiving of trash, Bt corn stalks especially. I've never really messed with a mounted plow before, but with the quick penetration cylinder, the BER might be a good match plow. Mike

Hi Rod,
The 430 and plow look like they were made to work together. Great picture too. Hope the 430 does well this Fall for you. I can't wait to see some pics. Moldboard plowing is and probably always be my favorite tillage task. I enjoy watching dirt get turned over and the smell of fresh soil too. Kow Farmer Kurt

Hi Kurt, 10-15 yrs ago I used to plow a fair amount, but dang it the dirt would blow in the spring for me. If I can get this little guy to work good I will plow a few troublesome small area's where plowing will work fine. I'm looking forward to giving it a try. Rod.

Rod I can not find the plow lit right at the moment but here is a shot of the plows added feature as you can see if you retract the cylinder it "tips" the plow points down for quicker penetration in hard soils cnt

Thanks Tom, my son has a 3 bottom BER with that linkage on. He bought it just to keep it from going to the scrap yard. I could never figure out why in the world would someone install a cly there. Now we know,lol. Rod.

With the modern flee pz gas,, 2 bottoms is all that 430 will want ,all heat and no pwer ,if you have a diesel you could pull 3 ... Dad and my brothers slipseated his 430 and pulled a 3/12 plow with a turnbuckle where hydro cylndr is ///from oil change to oil change in the early 70s around the clock with Pops 430 diesel /// a well Adjusted Case Plow pulls easier than any plow built

My VAC-14 will pull a 2-14" plow in even tough dry soil. Also, I had my tractor dyno-ed at the tractor show this year and I got 21hp on the pto. 21hp pto is the factory rating. I then proceeded to plow in the plowing demonstration in the hard baked august dirt that was last tilled in the spring, in fresh bean stubble, and in fresh corn stubble. I had the only rig that would penetrate and consistently do a good job. The picture above is not from the tractor show, I took the picture last summer. These tractors will do a lot better than some people think when everything is in good condition and set right.
