Two Bottom Plow

Recommended Posts

Well, I finally got the bracket made for it. Now I have to wait for spring to try it out. It'll hook up to my 3pt hitch and accept two sleeve type plows. [img]http://www.epho.com/pkjorlie/plowbkt.jpg[/img]

Yeah, I know what you mean! I just set the camera at a lower resolution and it smooths out those beads very nicely! LOL Heres a pic showing the plows attached (now that it's cool enough to touch).:D [img]http://www.epho.com/pkjorlie/2bplow.jpg[/img]

Bob, The C4 is for the Bronco II V8 project. Dutch, I used leftover 2" and 3" x 1/4" tube from the backhoe project and cut holes with a holesaw for 1/2" black pipe sleeves thru the tubes. The ID of 1/2" schedule 40 pipe is about 5/8" (a little tight, but I ran the drill down thru) For sway, I'll run a short 5/8" x 1-1/2" bolt thru the tube with a nut between the short tube and rear plow yoke. On the main tube bar I'll use a 5/8 x 4" or so bolt going thru both walls of the tube. Then a nut between the tube and the front plow yoke. On this one, I'll have to play with a little to see if I can double-nut inside the long front tube.

Paul, Thought maybe you found a source for lengths of heavy wall tubing. I went the water pipe route, and boring out solid rod. There must be a source somewhere...... I got tired of playing with taking "little" turns on the sway bolts, so I made sliding wedges. Works for me.

You might need AG tires just to get the shine back in those plow shares, he-he. But other than that you should have plenty of power to pull 2 10" inch plows. I have seen David Bradley walk behind garden tractors with a 3 HP briggs pull a 8" single plow with no effort at all.

BLT, I do have lugged tires on the tractor I pull the plow with. (See weekend project post. It's the one with the front and rear blades on it.) The cab gives me another 200# weight or so. MPH, No snow here. We had a record-tieing 53 deg. here today and some thunder showers. Little muddy for plowing though.

Looks great Paul. You should be able to roll some dirt with that. Now, either your dirt has alot of tilth, or those powermaxs' are meaner than I thought. It'd take better than 30 horses with plenty of traction to drag that thru my red clay...:D I would love to use that one in my established garden though.

This weekend I'm picking up a lathe for my garage. For components for a sleeve hitch, etc. if you guys need machine work done, I'll try to work it in. I can buy any material at cost at work. I would be buying 20' bars of whatever, so it would be best for me to set up a make several parts at a time so I don't have material storage problems. The misses may have issues because I'll have to make her park outside to get all my tractor and machine shop work done. Looks like I better find a real good Christmas present.

John, Thanks, and yes it is a stick weld job. Welder (Lincoln Buzz Box) is in the background. The weld job quite possibly looks a lot better than it really is. Had trouble when I ran out of Lincoln Fleetweld 180's (6011) and went to a 3/32 Forney (6013) rod. The puddle I was seeing was molten slag instead of metal. Really threw me! Charlie, Is that a Powerking 1620, with the tiller on? I thought about buying one once cuz the attachments interchange with the Powermax. I almost think Powerking designed that tractor around the 9020's and 720's. I bought a Powerking PTO shaft drive tiller (new) a few years back and use it on my 9020. There's a powerking with a tiller, belly mower, soft cab, snowblower and ag tires at the local "green" dealer right now. Think they want $6995 for it.

Paul-that is my ingersoll 4016 with the tiller-I have that,the leaf vac,48"deck,snow blower,and now a new 2way splitter-all hydro hookup.It does the job(s) very well,but doesn't mow or plow as good as my sovereign.they compliment each other for what I need around here.Charlie(this is me with Tybo-formerly Tyson the Terrible following-now,THERE'S a STORY!).
