so i threw the plow on the tractor and got a chance to play with it, well it was fun. tor up 2 inches of this rotten PA dirt clay messy mix per pass. o and i got my ags put on so they helped. so i cleared the showroom behind the shed for the tractors i sell and leveled the parking lot in back for the 2 tractor im gonna keep. i took down a 12" hard pack dirt mound like nothing. now i just need to make a rig so my plow doesnt trip.

Sweet,sounds like you are having fun with the old girl.

The trip springs are there to prevent you from bending or breaking your tractor up.But as with all springs,with time comes Fatigue.

Have you tried to tightened up the adjustment nuts a bit?

I would not rig it so it doesn't trip.You could possibly snap the cast iron arms on the jack shaft if you hit something solid.

also while in the process of what some call screwing around, i dug up the electric invisible dog fence wire, and destroyed over 30 feet of it. so now thats gotta be fixed. but i had so much fun i dont even care.

Glad that you got some quality seat time J! Better get that fence fixed up before the dog runs away though LOL!

the pics r blurry since my ipods camera is screwed up. but heres an idea of what i did. i should have taken before and after. ive never thought moving 6 inches of clay dirt mix would be easy. also i sucked down over a quart of oil in the hour i played around. i think about half a pint went out my crankcase breather =( Photo1 (25).jpg

case i think the dogs learned not to cross the line, well hopefully, because i tested the shock collar out once and does it hurt! worse them grabbing a sparkplug while turning an engine over.
