Obviously would depend on your soil and plow, but I pulled

a 2 x 12 behind my 9N in 1st over drive. Mostly red clay.

Loaded rear tires but no additional weight. It occasionally ran
out of traction and didn't have the power to get going from a dead
stop without downshifting if I had to stop with the plow engaged.

My plow and the tractor at the time were in fair shape, not great.
If they were in better condition, I don't think it would have been
any trouble at all. Hobby farming/garden. No serious field work
for me with this combination. My '48 8N with no ballast wouldn't
pull that plow in the same soil in 2nd. Plenty of power, no traction.

The soil is good, no clay and no rocks. I am also pulling a 2 bottom 12 plow. I know I will also have to switch out the tranny gear to helical but that's no big deal. I never found the step up very useful in the 8n but in the 9n I do use it more.
