Plow Day in Kynesville, Florida

Postby Mr E » Sat Jan 14, 2012 9:32 pm

John and I (son-in-law) went to a plow day today. Had a wonderful time. Stayed pretty busy and didn't get a lot of pictures, but here is couple of videos you might enjoy.



Hey Denny, recognize the red tractor?

That is NOT the Super M making all that noise! A guy was there with a 1958 Oliver Super 99 with a GM diesel engine and a straight stack. Bet he won't be able to hear it thunder for a few days. :lol:

Cool old JD on steel


Didn't get any videos of the Super M pulling the plows today. But she did a very good job. This was a great group of folks and we had a wonderful day. Day started out at about 27 degrees, but warmed up quickly to low 60s. Gorgeous day!

Looks like a good time. I would take the 60's. It was a high of around 27 here in Indy today I think.

Thanks for sharing!

Roy - you need to set the cut on that disk a little more. You're not even starting to challenge that Super M.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

You are so right. The disk needed some major adjustments. It was set as agressive as it would go. About a thousand pound of weight on it would have helped as well. The SM would pull it in 4th gear, but the disk would just "hop" along. :lol: :lol:

I tugged the set of 3 - 16s pretty effortlessly as well. Could use those rear wheel weights, tho. I was really impressed, she ran all day and never complained once. :{_}: :{_}:

Yep. Mr. E needs several railroad ties stacked on top and maybe even a extra disc or two. :D
Val, be sure to have Roy give you a ride on his JD B while your down there. You'll be seeing green and yellow all the way back home. :lol:
