Re: 6480
You maybe right. It does look like clay soil too, so it would take a bit of pulling through that too.

By the looks of it I would say it is a semi mounted plough, so most of the weight stays on the ground during turnover.

Re: 6480
I can´t understand how this tractor can pull this furrow...Is the Perkins chipped? or in Scotland you don´t have slopes and clay? We also use a fully mounted 6furrow plough, but with 200horses up front (MF8160). Someone can tell that are genuine smokers and other bad things but I always say that Perkins engines are the best and the evidence is here.

Sorry, I know that my english is bad :-[

Happy Christmas

Re: 6480
ofwel was hij juist aan het inzetten, ofwel is die foto gewoon fake, zou het toch ook moeilijk geloven dat een 6480 in zulke zware grond een 6 schaar zou kunnen trekken.

Re: 6480
it's just sandground i think, maybe heavy sand
we pull a 3 furrow with 90 hp with 1300 rpm, he could pull a 4 furrow
so this mf can easily do this i think

Re: 6480
Thanks jdeere.
Gerbert, i´m sure that if you have light soils then you can pull a 4f with a 90hp tractor, but if we are talking about a reversible fully suspended plough, then the problem is keep the nose planted in the soil when you drive the shuttle. In my zone we always say that it´s necessary about 32hp and 1500kg of tractor for each average 16inch body, but we have heavy soils and steep fields.

Re: 6480
Luisito,

It looks like a semi mounted plough to me. I know a guy here in Tas who pulls a Kverneland BB 8 furrow conventional plough with a John Deere 4450 MFWD, in some mixed soils (mainly clay loam types).

If it is semi mounted, it would be alot easier to pull, as opposed to it being fully 3 PL mounted :-)

Cheers from down under,

The Cowboy ;-)

Re: 6480
Tas
Yes, this plough is semi-mounted, there isn´t any problem lifting it, but the problem is pulling it because semi-mounted ploughs not transfer its weight to the tractor when needed and you must have a very heavy tractor if you want to mantain reasonable slide percentages.I think that the 6480 is too light for this task(in spite of she is good ballasted). Obviously all things depend on the specific soil resistence, grip, tractor wheels etc..Not is usual that a 145hp tractor is capable of ploughing with a 6f reversible and autoreset plough, but itsn´t impossible, particularly when we are talking about a Massey :-)

Regards from your antipodes :-D

Re: 6480
luisito, you are defenitely right about a 90 hp tractor can pull a 4f. But the "joke" is that there are very much good and cheap 3f ploughs for sale, but 4f are much more expensive;-)
