no experience with the plow mike but the center pic on the home page shows a plow with turf tires and weights. I do know my landlord with weights and chains on turf tires will handle as much or more mud than my b10 with lugs and no weights. Also matters how much "ballast" your parking on the seat. I'm about 180

Have a freind (Bunky) that pulled a plow with I think a Simplicity 3210V with turf treads and no weights.He said it did ok.This was not a Simplicity/AC plow though and I don't think it was as big as the Simplicity/AC plows...

Last year I pulled a AC plow with the B-10. I had 40lbs weight on each rear turf tire. Used no chains. The first pass worked ok. I tried to make a second pass and the tires loaded up with plowed soil. This year had ag lug treads with the weights and it worked a little better, but would still spin in broken soil. GregB

I used a 10" plow on the Big Ten and the 912 AC's that I had. Both of them has turf tires, I put both wheel weights on the land wheel and none on the furrow wheel. I also had a set of chains on both wheels. Worked fine no trouble at all. The Big Ten was a 3 speed and I could pull the plow in 2nd gear.

This spring I put in a garden for a friend's sister. It was lawn to start with. I made one pass with the moldboard plow and three passes with the tiller, and I used the Putt Putt to do it.......

I used a side plow I made for my 3112h with my balasted turf tires, I could use the hydrolics to push down on the plow and get it into the soil about 8" at a swipe. I also used it to bust sod and had no problems. you could also use chains. (just a thought) Mike

I always used chains on my turfs for plowing with the 9020. Worked fine. I switched to lugged tires when we blacktopped the drive. If you've got chains you're good to go!;)

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
