PostSubject: Plow idea help?   Sun Feb 22, 2015 12:46 am

Would anybody have a idea on how to make a turning plow for a lawn tractor? I need a way to plow and the only thing I have is a old cultivator blade with the adjustment bar. I can pull it and dig up dirt, but after about 10 feet it leans over one way or the other and slides across the ground and quits digging.

I basically have this. Just the bar and blade.

I'm thinking about just buying some rectangle steel and build a frame to put it in to help stabilize it. I would prefer a homemade turning plow though.

I don't know much about how they are rigged up. What do you mean by turning? As in adjustable somehow? I thought it was either digging through the dirt or up out of the way.

This is a turning plow.
It digs up the ground and turns over the sod or packed dirt. Then later on you disc it when the grass has rotted away and when the ground is dry to break up the clumps, kinda like a tiller does.
Then you plant, pick, and disc again next year(unless you have a drill planter, no need to disc next year, just plant). But I have something does more of this than turning.
Just digs a trench. I can use it, it will just take more time and work. After searching all over the internet, no one has made their own. My best bet is just hope I get lucky and find one cheap.

Have you checked some of the other garden tractor forums? The members on those know about such things I understand what you need, but never have tried to build one good luck in your search.

Oh, now I guess I know what you mean then. Can't you just cut your plow in half and add a flat straight piece to hold it straight in the dirt? Maybe your plow doesn't have enough of a curve to it to turn the dirt over though. Probably kind of tough to make one up from scratch, as in the plow blade itself, because I imagine it needs to be pretty rugged or it would get torn up quick.

Yeah that's what I was thinking has to be tough and takes a powerful tractor to do the job. I have one that could with proper tires and weights, but don't plan on doing so not along as my father in law can with his 2310 ford lol.

We have a old brinly or something sleeve hitch plow love the bejesus out of it back when we had the old high low craftsman it took all of us kids and my dad sitting on the back of the tractor to get it to pull. Takes a lot of weight and good tires.

I can get a brinly plow new for $348 from home depot. That is a bit much for something to mess around with and I can't guarantee I can pull it.

I found one for $75, but it was too far of a drive.
