Sounds like you may not be using stablizer bars or chains. The force of the pull will cause the plow to drift to the left unless the stablizers hold it steady behind the tractor. Even then the tractor itself could try to drift on you unless you use your brakes to correct!

Wish you luck!

My single bottom 12" plow does the same drift. I would assume from your response that the chains finally hold it in position, as the drift is not a problem. (I use a 601 (661) Workmaster.)

The landside is supposed to absorb the
side thrust of the plow against the furrow wall.
Some people move their wheels in close for
plowing. Then the line of draft is more centered on the tractor which can reduce drift.
If you have to hold it on coarse with sway
chains, just be careful not to bend the left

I agree with Drew. Pull type plows don't have sway chains and they aren't supposed to go sideways. I thought is the 2-3 plow tractor has you thinking you can go deeper. By doing this you have surpased the landsides ability to hold the plow straight. I don't recall how big of bottom you said you had. I have always been to told the standard rule of thumb is you can go half as deep as the bottom is wide. 18" wide then 9" deep. Next.

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
