Breaking in the moldboard

Old Brinley NOS 12" plow from B10Dave. Even though I dont know what I'm doing, it works like a charm. Expanded one of my neghbors gardens about 5' wider, made a nice test run. I have the plow going about 8" deep, throttle at about 1/2 to 3/4 in 2nd gear with the vsrible at fast. Pulled the plow fine. I wouldn't quite say "easy" but certainly wasn't working the tractor hard either. I did catch and break 1 cross link on the chains. The next is an all new garden out back here all in established turf, and hope to learn to set the coulter then. Some say it makes a big difference all the time, not just cutting sod.

Lookin good Larry. The most important thing is to make SMALL adjustments as needed. "Sneak up" on the correct setting. The coulter is only needed for slitting sod. You will notice a different depth setting will be needed for busting new sod. I had to adjust the plow deeper to plunge into hard, clay-rich sod. Otherwise, the plow would just skip across the grass. The plow will "glide" through the soil. The landslide should be as level as possible with the grade. My plow is my most favoritest attachment.dOddOd
