The old girl still has it , sorry , cant say the same for the operator.
Not if .it will be needed
There are levelling boards on power harrows too.
they still dont do the job of a decent cultivator or leveler
Fellows tend to over do with the leveler end up packing the sh1te out of the ground..
the leveller is fine somewhere in the middle of a job but we always give a light run of a harrow to finish with the toothpacker roller on back to firm it up
I hope it has improved by 2020, plough is definitely not set right anyway!
A spring loaded Dowdeswell, not something you see every day.
Id say no load on the springs could be alot of his problem!!!
This Lad knows how to set a plough.
I have to admit I did worse at a ploughing match once! Let's say I was still suffering from the night before!
But it wasnt as bad as my next door neighbour did a few years later, he literally dragged sods from one end of the plot to the other.!!!!
Youd nearly want a second field to turn that tractor around
MF 1200's weren't the best for ploughing, any bit of steering would waggle the linkage.
Dont think that was his problem, id say theres as much waggle in the steering as there is in the plough to compensate each other!!
So a question for the ploughing lads. What does he need to do to get that plough ploughing better? I don't know him btw but just interested.
I think regardless of what you do you will never get a field perfectly smooth after ploughing it.
It takes a few years for it to settle.
The disk harrow leaves them very rough
Springs are all loose is alot of it,even when its out of ground the legs are hanging
You would have to be on site with him to know what way its working really, otherwise it would be the same as telling a fellow how to weld over the phone.....!
I would have headed for the gate after the first run with that yoke.
You don't need to know much about ploughing to know that plough wasn't fit to be in the field.
A bad tradesman blames his tools....
Anyone that would continue using a plough like that, doing work like that can not be considered a tradesman or ploughmam.
I have seen pigs doing tidier rooting.
I headed for the next post after the first run....................
Im surprised with you, i would have thought you would be out with the tools welcoming the challenge in setting it up......
95% of plough setting should be doing in the yard, adjustments in the field should minor, doesn't always work out that way, but in general it should.
That used to be Dad's favourite saying about bad ploughing.
