Plowing with a Cub

Postby WaMoo » Fri Oct 14, 2016 1:22 pm


So, my wife and I decided we wanted to have a small garden next year, so we now had an opportunity to use our 194 fast hitch plow. I've never plowed before, so there was a lot of figuring things out along the way.

Being an educational experience, we made a video about setting up the fast hitch, adjusting the plow, and the actual plowing. We had good success, so here's a link to the video"

Nice video, a Cub is a great tractor to learn how to plow with, having the manual is a big plus it gets your adjustments fairly close, I learned how to plow with an Allis Chalmers C which uses only a slightly bigger mounted plow. You can experiment with depth and level and running straight furrows and different soil types. In my soil which is a fairly heavy clay moisture is critical to good plowing, to wet you can't get any traction, to dry the plow doesn't slice the soil it breaks through it and makes big chunks. We had one field with a band of different soil almost 30 feet wide across it that the county man said was left from the glaciers, the plow would always ride up to the surface in, it ran almost the length of the field. With a little tractor like the cub with 8 or 9 horses the plow will let you know when you are doing things right and wrong , right it will slice through the sod and soil like a knife wrong and you will think you are dragging an anchor behind you, which will make you a much better plowman
If you ever use a bigger multi bottom plow, if you know how to read the plow abd adjust it you can make life so much easier on the tractor and burn a lot less fuel, than someone who just hooks up and goes for it. Good Job T J
