plow sharpening

Wed May 05, 2004 2:22 pm

Anyone know how to sharpen the land plowshares? No matter how high or low I set the depth of my plow, it digs in as deep as it can, therefore it turns the soil on its side instead of completely over. I have tried a number of different things, I suspect that it is simply dull.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Are you talking about a 193 drawbar mounted plow? A plow that is going deep doesn't sound like a worn out point or share. Raising the front of the plow with the depth adjustment lever should level the plow out some and if you have adequate ground speed, the soil should turn over. (If the moldboard is well scoured and dirt is not sticking to it.)
