GS 217947 309 Plowing with JD 8120 either
Plowing with JD 8120
All crops are in and about half of the liquid manure is
spread, so it's time to plow some under.

Got started this morning, did about 50 acres. The tractor is
an 8120 and the plow is a Gregoire Besson 6 furrow. I was
plowing 7.5" deep and 18" wide.

Alle gewassen zijn weer binnen en de helf van de stront ligt
op het land dus moet er maar wat onder geploegd worden.

Vanmorgen begonnen met 20 hectare. De trekker is een JD 8120
en de ploeg een Gregoire Besson 6 schaar. Ploegde ongeveer
18 cm diep en 45cm breed.

Here you can see the hydraulic steering, the variable width
indicator and the hydraulic adjustable first furrow width.

Hier kan je de hydraulische stuuring, de variable breedte
aanwijs geval en de hydraulisch verstelbare eerste voor
zien. En de Blad veren zijn er omdat we hier stenen in de
grond hebben...

Re: Plowing with JD 8120
Hey Flying Dutchman,
Good to know that the crops are in. Here in SW Quebec, it
can't stop raining, so it seems like we'll never be able to
get in the fields. How do you like your Gregoire Besson?
Is there any advantage to have a land wheel and a wheel in
the furrow versus only having an on-land wheel? We have a 5
furrows Gregoire Besson since 1995 and we had no problem
with the on-land wheel. Is Gregoire Besson big in SW
Ontario or is Kverneland still the market leader? Up here
I'd say that the market share is near equal between Gregoire
Besson and Kverneland.

Re: Plowing with JD 8120
We love that plow, got it in 2003 and worked very well. The
on land wheel mounted on the side allows more accurate depth
control. The rear wheel doesn't do as much work but they
work together to keep everything level, side to side and
front to back. Works well, but you have you adjust it to
start a new furrow otherwise the plow won't go into the
ground.

There definately is a lot of kverneland around, followed by
overum. There are not that many GB plows arround. We tried
them all and liked the GB the best.

Re: Plowing with JD 8120
Thanks, we are gonna plow about 500 acres in total including
that 50 acre alfalfa field and another 30 acres from the 200
acre field. Next year we'll have 260 acres of alfalfa in one
huge field over 4 different farms.

Re: Plowing with JD 8120
Hey Gerard,

Thats one nice sized field!! So is all your land in one
huge block, or is some of it spread out in different areas?

Thanks,

Take care.

Re: Plowing with JD 8120
All our 675 acres is basically one big block. But not that
square. Basically we have a couple square 100 acre farms
surrounding a triangle 50 acre triangle with our building on
it. The land changes orientation 45 degree where we live.
There are some roads through it.

It's rediculous how well it worked out, had 3 neighbours
retire in 4 years. 2 of them we talked to ahead of time and
the last one wanted too much money so we waited, noone else
bought it so after a year he finally lowered the price
enough.

Re: Plowing with JD 8120
Hey Gerard,

Well that is actually amazing, to have it all in one area,
and not have to spend too much time driving between farms!!

It can be amazing what will come your way if you wait for it
eh?

Take care,

Will

Re: Plowing with JD 8120
Nice pics!

I haven't seen that kind of plough for ages. Good to see
them!

You bet the GB is a good plow! :-)
They still do some good stuff in France. :-P
OK not a lot but they still do. :-)

;-)

PS: it's not "Gregoire Besson", it's "Gregoire et Besson".
