Re: JD & 7 furrow plough
Nice pics ;-) does that tractor have enough HP to pull that plough?

JD & 7 furrow plough
150hp 30hp/furrow. Pulled easily in this field. And the Tansanit also handled well . 6920S would struggle with a semi-mounted 7 furrow and wouldn't lift a 7 furrow fully mounted plough. The above plough is also vari width.

Re: JD & 7 furrow plough
That should have been 20hp/furrow.

Here's the theory.

Re: JD & 7 furrow plough
Ok, thanks. From what I have seen here in heavier soils, 25-30 hp would be closer to the mark.

Re: JD & 7 furrow plough
In lighter soils it may be enough with 15 hp/furrow - I know about a farmer in northern Sweden who used a IH 3588 (180 hp) with a 12 furrow plough - but that was pure sand.

Here with heavy clay we want 30-40 hp/furrow, and then we don't plough wither furrows than 40 cm, and depth under 20.

Re: JD & 7 furrow plough
TC, here they count just the same. behind a 6920 you can find a 5 furrow, in some areas of my country it's even a 7710 in stead of a 6920

Re: JD & 7 furrow plough
Ok, thanks Tom & Lennart ;-)

A contractor here used a 10 furrow KV onland plough on a JD 8450, which pulled ok in a range of soils.

Alot of guys with 100-110 hp tractors use 4 furrow 3PL mounted conventional ploughs here as well.

Re: JD & 7 furrow plough
Why they preffer to use a plow instead of a heavy disk harrow?

Re: JD & 7 furrow plough
better weed control,and in europe we have enough moisture,so we dont have to worry about loosing the wet.

Re: JD & 7 furrow plough
Ploughing with a mouldboard plough does alot better job in heavier soils Victor, especially if ploughing old pastures or burying trash & turf.

In moist conditions they do a better job as well + you get a better, more even working depth too.

In the UK & Europe they even use the mouldboard ploughs in autumn but our ground is too hard & dry to use them here then; we plough in the winter & early spring :-)

TC ;-)

Re: JD & 7 furrow plough
Very nice photos Tas, you have the sand in the soil.
In my country 150hp can plow with one or two furrow

Re: JD & 7 furrow plough
we usually use about 25- 35 HP per 16 inch furrow. we have a fendt 818 on a 7btm kongskilde 6000, a fendt 818 on a 7 btm white 449 and a Case MX 255 on an 8 btm 449. we are looking for a 2549 white 10 btm for the MX
