GS 118375 309 JD 8120 plowing either
JD 8120 plowing
I promised I would post pictures when we started plowing,
here they are!

The plow is a Gregoire Besson 6 furrow semi-mounted,
autoreset, hydraulic variable furrow width and hydraulic
first furrow adjustment. I was plowing at a depth of 7.5",
and width of 18". I was driving in 10th gear, 1900 rpm,
6MPH, about 85% throttle. Was going very well. We have a
clay based soil, and conditions were excellent.
Re: JD 8120 plowing
Deze week zijn we met ploegen begonnen.

De ploeg is een Gregoire Besson 6 schaar, rondgaande ploeg.
Er zitten bladveren op elke scharen omdat we hier stenen in
de grond hebben. De breedte kan hydraulisch veranderd
worden. En er is ook nog een cylinder om de voorste
ploegvoor af te stellen. Bij deze ploeg word alleen maar de
voorkant met de hef opgetild, het achterwiel tilt de

Ik ploegde ongeveer 20cm diep en 45cm breed per schaar. Ik
reed tussen de 9.5 en 10 km/h. met 85% gas. Ging heel mooi,
dit is kleigrond en de condities waren heel goed.

Here you can see that the loaderframe hasn't impared the
view of the open furrow.

Hier kan je zien dat ik nog steeds de ploegvoor kan zien met
de voorlader erop.
Re: JD 8120 plowing
mooie foto's maar ik vraag me altijd af bij het rondgaand
ploegen hoe dat gaat want op een gegeven moment word de
breedte toch te groot op het kopeind en kan je toch niet
constant helemaal naar de andere kant van het geploegde
Re: JD 8120 plowing

Nice Pics, and nice open view from the cab!! Thanks for
taling the time to snap off a few for us!!

Taker easy

Re: JD 8120 plowing
yeah really nice pic thanks
Re: JD 8120 plowing
would not it be easier to plough with a reversible plough?
Re: JD 8120 plowing

a few days ago I had the pleasure to ride also a 8120 (post
no. 117960) for a few up and down with the plow. I have also
a Quicke laoder and I don´t understand why you don´t remove
the mainframe of your loader. It´s a job of two minutes. A
few years ago we all where happy as the exhaust and the air
cleaner walk out of the driver´s view and you are looking
the whole day through the frame like out of a prison window.

Re: JD 8120 plowing
Je begint aan een kant van het land, niet helemaal aan de
katn maar een stukje naar binnen. Dan rijd je rondjes rechts
om totdat je denkt dat het te breed is, dan begin je over nu
een stuk opzij. Weer rondjes rechts om totdat het korter is
om van het tweede stuk naar het eerste stuk rondjes te
rijden links om. Dus dan worden de rondjes kleiner totdat
beide kanten bij elkaar komen, dan begin je met stuk nummer
3, eersts wweer rechts om, en dan het gat tussen de 2de en
3de weer dicht maken.

Doesn't make as big of a difference as you'd think. First of
all, all our fields are usually 800m or longer, so you cover
a lot of area without turning around all the time like you
often see on the smaller european fields.
A 6 furrow reversible plow would have to be a wagon type
plow which is very big and takes a very large headland to
turn around on, or you'd have to shift to reverse to turn
Finally a 6 furrow reversible plow is twice as much money.
The plow won't last much longer, and doesn't speed up the
work much if you have long square fields.
Re: JD 8120 plowing
It doesn't bother me to have the loader on the tractor, I
can easily what I need to see. Might as well keep it on
there for weight for better traction.
Re: JD 8120 plowing
Very nice pictures. Never plowed that way. Only plowed using
an onland plow. I'll grab some pictures if I remember
plowing either this fall or next spring with the 8970
Genesis and 7 furrow 700 case plow. Traded in the 2670 Case
for the Genesis. Now that's one nice tractor.

Take care,

Re: JD 8120 plowing
Do you have the optimal antiswing (softdrive or shock
absorber) facility on your lader? I think it´s a good thing
to save the joint´s of the farme during jolting at plowing.
A good thing is also a quick coupling device for the
hydraulic for about 300 $. With this, detaching is a
childrens game!!

Here every one have a load mostly of concret for the

Re: JD 8120 plowing
Yes, the loader has softdrive, which works very well, we'd
likely take off the loader if we didn't have that. We don't
have the quick connect hydraulics since the hoses connect to
a john deere valve block which allows us to relieve pressure
from the lines to detach the loader. The loader is operated
using a John Deere electronic joystick, and the valve block
came with the joystick package.
