    I would say 'not very well'. Check out my video of a 3320 with 2-12's.

    We didn't have it perfectly adjusted, and I chopped out a lot of the video where it was lugging or spinning, so I promise you, this video is 'best case'. Let me know if you need link (I'm on my phone).

    Dan,

    I would recommend getting a gauge wheel and a coulter with your plow. Gauge wheel is more important with these short-wheel base tractors.
    Coulter allows you to cut through trash, and leave a clean furrow sidewall.

    Simple Answer: IT DEPENDS.

    I think they recommend a 12" plow, which is pretty sad since my 1974 140 garden tractor pulls a 12" brinly plow.

    BUT, it depends on how deep you want to plow, soil conditions, type of soil, tires on the tractor, weight on the tractor, how well the plow is set up, design of the moldboard and how fast you want to go.

    I have pulled a 16" JD plow with my little Mitsubishi compact, its 17hp and 4x4. I have bar tires, 150lb wheel weights and it has to be in 4x4 to move, but it will do it. That tractor is gear drive so less drivetrain loss.

    2-12 is pretty common size for say Ford 8/9N so you see a lot of those for sale used. But some are 2-14 or 2-16 so need to measure it.

    If you find one ask if you could demo it to see if it will work. Might not be possible but worth asking.

    Most issues people have are they plow too deep, plow soil that's to wet, plow too fast, mold board isn't clean and slick, or all the above. A rule of thumb I've used for depth is half the plow, for example a 12 inch plow should be 6 inches deep but 7 would be acceptable. The plows can go deeper but for compact tractors the half rule seems to work pretty good. A moldboard can go deeper and they do for ag tractors, but a chisel plow is better if you need to go deeper than say 12-16 inches and that is usually because of compaction or drainage.

    Just my two cents and your experience could vary.
