    Pictures from Another Marthasville Plow Day, Nov. 24, 2012

    We held a small plow day near Marthasville, Mo today. Four of us was plowing. It got cold overnight into early morning, which left the top of the ground frozen. As it began to thaw out, it got a bit slippery and traction wasn't great in a few spots. But it was a great day. The land owner served us dinner of hamburgers, fries, spagetthi, baked beans, and soda and water. We had 7 acres to plow and of course, we didn't get all done. I had to leave at 1, but a couple of guys kept plowing.

    I took this small video from the seat of my 316H2. It's not Oscar quality nor anything close. As you can tell I'm no camera guy.



    If anyone hasn't been to a plow day, I recommend you attend one. It's fun and the camaraderie is great, meeting other tractor enthusiasts, etc.

    Jason,
    You're just being super kind. It was hard to hold the camera, keep hands on the steering wheel and keep the forward control lever pushed forward. My 316 has a habit of slowing down unless I keep constant pressure on the motion control lever.

    As long as you have traction and some weight, they can do amazing things. I worked my tractor pretty hard yesterday, but the only times it strained was when the tires started to spin on the slippery ground. You can hear it once or twice in the video of when I encountered some slippery ground. If the ground would have stayed frozen I don't think we would have as much traction issues as we did. I was pulling a 12 inch Brinly 3 point plow. I have a 10 inch Brinly sleeve hitch plow, but I didn't take it with me yesterday.

    Really enjoyed the pictures and video. I wholeheartedly agree on attending a plow day if you get the opportunity. Great fun and the fellowship is even better.

    Alabama's plow day was just held a few weeks ago. It usually has a good turn out. Some day I want to get down there to attend one.

    but I don't think I could play with mine, too big to run with the GTs and too small to run with the big boys!

    Sounds like you need to buy a GT. That's the beauty of garden tractors - they're plentiful, easy to work on, don't take much room in your garage or on your trailer, and they're fun. You can find a good John Deere garden tractor on Craig's List, ebay, WFM, etc. The plows aren't that hard to find either. Finding the hitch or 3 point will be the hardest, but not that hard either.
