Ploughing tips and tricks

And stay well clear when it pops out.

Had a large stone jammed between disc and point some years ago. Hammered it out and the stone sprung against my shin.
Ploughed away but hurt like hell. Blood in the welly.
It dried up and went to the doctor the next day. He told me it went through to the bone.
It actually punched a hole in the denim jeans I was wearing. I still can’t believe it didn’t break my shin bone.

I did that with a large slab of concrete. Ended up with the front of the Landini in the air. Of course 11pm, vowed after that never to plough headlands in the night again...

Would that not be very hard on the tractor and plough. It doesn’t seem that gentle of a curve?

Got some of the ground turned over this afternoon, still wet enough, there’s a bit of a spring in the bottom corner just on the headland and I thought all was reasonably ok till I lifted the plough and went to back out, luckily some liberal use of the side brakes and loud pedal brought it round and drove out of it. It’ll be fun trying to dodge round it with the Harrow:confused::crying::no:D61EB700-94A4-4588-AFFC-8047B0D08935.jpeg

No problem get them, Mike Roche does them.
I have a stock of 3 hole disc stub axles and bearing if anyone wants them.

Back window open & no discs, proves it can be done...

Are you doing a lot more ploughing than usual this year or why all the breakdowns you never saw before?
No more than any other year but it’s all ley and the last time it was ploughed was with horses and a single furrow plough. Don’t know why the plate at the front broke I think it might be from last year the combi wheel used to catch the ground a bit and it could have damaged it. Also there was only one spacer on one side of the ram which might not have helped. The housing for bar and pin was the victim of a huge stone, the disc today was also a victim of a massive stone
