#8 leaves furrows on edge

First time I've used this particular plow. Jacked up the land wheel and set the levers, reset the tractor wheels and hitch to get the right draft. It pulls easy, but won't turn the furrows over, just leaves them standing on edge.It's a 2-14, any ideas/suggestions? TIA

If you have enough tractor, raise the plow an inch or so, then move up to 1 gear faster and see if that helps.

some brands of plows are designed this way. some turn it completly over and pull hard . some are just designed to put it on it's side. like the others said buy or make extensions if a completely clean surface is what you want. the 1/4 turn will leave it looking like it has been chisel plowed and leave some trash on top which helps with erosion. depends on what kind of seed bed you want. good luck !=)

Thanks for the replies and ideas fellas. BTW if the shares have not polished yet, would that make a difference in the turning? I will post back when I get it right. Tim

You can't go much deeper than 6 inches with these ploughs. Remember half your furrow width is max depth.

Increase the cut. ( angle of landside to furrow )

I think a lot of the old plows would do that if you plowed too deep. Many of the old plows also had moldboard extentions you could bolt on that would fix the problem. I have a 2 bottom JD plow with extentions that turns over furrows very nicely but my JD 3 bottom plow (same plow except anther bottom) won't completely turn a furrow if I plow too deep and I don't have the extentions on it. I found the extentions for the 2 bottom plow in a junk yard.
