Plow Question

Postby Alan Gee » Wed Sep 16, 2015 1:59 pm

Does anyone know if this style plow will just hook up to the rear drawbar and will be able to be lifted and lowered by the hydrolics

Short answer is yes. But you also need the rest of it for it to work. Here is a link showing everything that is needed. http://www.tmtractor.com/tm-tractor/gim ... ow_001.htm

Yes, if you the depth adjustment mechanism.

I have the same plow. The draw bar faces forward and the flat plate on the plow attaches to it. The depth adjustment with handle is located to the drivers right with a tall handle. Since your plow looks to be in pretty good shape, I would definitely pick up the depth control if you don't have it.

I use this plow in combination with a disk harrow and it does a great job. It will cut though old pasture sod where even a large rototiller is having a tough time.

OK , thank you.
The tractor does have that draw bar but its now on they other way around. There are a few odd parts that came with it that I will sort out. Another question if I may, I see in the photos, and they are very good photos thank you , they show a lever running up the right side that connects to the drawbar and it looks like the drawbar is only held on by a pin so it can tilt a little up and down. If the actual plow can be raise by the hydrolics what is the tilt lever for ? I may be not seeing someting but it looks like the lever could at best only change the pitch of the drawbar a few inches .

Alan, the hydraulics do raise and lower the plow for transport. The lever on the right fender controls the depth by changing the pitch. The more angle, the depper you go. Your plow will not work with out the lever and the attachments to it.

You need the rear lift, on your hydraulics, to raise and lower the plow. The depth control lever is just that, it raises and lowers the front of the plow, to adjust depth. Most needed for the first furrow, when the both rear wheels, are on unplowed ground, but is used to set the depth, in following furrows, too.

OK thank you . The levers are with it and also the linkage. The only part that seems to be missing is the lug that links the lever to the draw bar but I have a welder and a metal lathe and some steel so that will not be a problem, Again Thank you.

OK, got it all hooked up and adjusted and it is amazing how much work that little tractor can do. I see now where you really do need the pitch lever . The fellow that had the plow said you dont but he is trying to sell it. What was amazing was I found the pitch lever and all the hardware for sale only a few miles from him and for only $25 it was a steal.
A little humor, We have a nice size garden that we have been useing for years . Each year we plow up rocks of all size. Each year there are more that need to be removed.
To test the plow I drove to an unused area of our property and ran a few deep rows about 50 yards long to see how deep it would go and not stall and to just get the hang of it. . ,,,,,NOT ONE ROCK !

Its not a NEW plow . Its new to me but its in like new condition. Almost zero rust and the shear is in very good condition. The attaching plate and springs are all in very good shape . It still has the original paint on the drawbar. The lift and stay chains are with it along with the adjuster clips for each. It actually has the instruction book with it as to how to set it up.

That was a steal for a depth control lever!

Now you know where the garden USED to be back in the day. Years ago they picked up all the rocks and threw them where your current garden is. Time to move your garden! :lol: :lol:

Ha ! could be true. There are long piles of rocks along the property from just such activity and you may be right. One odd thing I used to show my kids was that many of the rocks have fossils of sea shells and sea life in them. We live at about 1500 ft above sea level and I used ask my kids " how do you think these got here." When the answer dawned on them that the entire area was under an inland sea they got a funny look on their face. Hope it does not decide to go back as it was.
