What a great weekend in Western PA. Saturday, up at 6:45AM... Dismounted the Woods 59 Mower (fun...) and moved the drawbar to the front of the final drives. Drove tractor to Mother in Law's house where the Cub 193 plow was located. Mounted plow (fun). Drove 5 miles of back roads through suburbia up to Hengelsberg Hill (my name for it) where the family garden plot is located. Got lots of great seat time and saw the countryside around home at 6 MPH. (fun)...
Plowed the Hengelsberg family garden plot with my favorite uncle (Uncle Jim). Just could not get the plow to plow correctly. Would not run deep enough so that the heel was down in the furrow. My uncle and I reset the wheel width of the tractor so that it was correct with the manual, everything was set up right, but the plow just would not SUCK properly. I really need to see my plow next to another 193 plow to make sure that mine is "right"... Took out Uncle's Kubota 4WD tractor with Pittsburgh plow and tried to plow...he couldn't get his to suck down either...perhaps too dry.
Then, drove to Mom and Dad's place on Hengelsberg Hill to say hello. Then for the 5 miles home. Removed plow, flipped drawbar and got ready to mount mower back under tractor. For now, that will have to wait... I was BUSHED!
I certainly see the reason for one Cub per implement, but the fun was really worth it!
Sorry...no pics of the weekend as I was just too busy having fun playing in the dirt to stop for pics...
Love riding the back roads!
