Sorry everyone, I had a stupid moment. This should be
"Ploughing 2005". The pictures were taken around 25 January
2005. Sorry!

Re: Ploughing 2004
how fast can you drive with a disk plow? and what's the
depth, doesn't look deep to me. Over here we only plow with
a furrow plough at a depth of 25-30 cm.

take care

Re: Ploughing 2004

work with anytingh in the front?

Re: Ploughing 2004
I think it's because of the dust (stof)

Re: Ploughing 2004
The air inlet is that high on most of our tractors around
here, to cope with dust better. Disk plow can go up to about
8.5km/h if you know what you're doing and the soil is soft.
Depth here is about 20cm.

Re: Ploughing 2004
koen, Marius also drives another plow and tractor setup.
It's a fairly large farm and they have several tractors from
which to choose.:-) He may be refering to the other tractor.
Perhaps he will have a picture of it too.

Re: Ploughing 2004
I tried to upload a photo of the 210hp Case, but it isn't
working. Like Don said, I work for a different operation and
the other tillage tractor broke, so we had the big one
pulling a small plow to get done.

Re: Ploughing 2004
This is the Magnum 7130 we spoke about, pulling 22
International disks.

Yes, it really is a 22-disk ;-)
