I would say 'not very well'. Check out my video of a 3320 with 2-12's.Wonder if my jd 2320 will handle a 2 bottom plow 12 inch :unknown:Want to buy a bottom plow

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).

Right now i try to find a used one .I find 3 for under 600 but all with 2 plows -that s why i start this threadDan,
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.
I too have a 16hp kubota b7100 r1 tires gear that would pull a plow better than my jd 2320 hydro r4 tires But kubota has a backhoe that is a pain to removeSimple 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.

what brand is that 12"? our farm's getting to the point where we're about to start some field crops, but finding an affordable plow has been the hard part...You will most likely want to stick with a one bottom plow. Grew up with 8n and 2 bottom but dirt, loam verses clay makes a difference as well as weight/traction. Proper adjustment of a plow is paramount to successful use.
I purchased my 12" in Farminton, MO for $300 new and am real pleased with perfomance of plow and 1025r. I still have the old Dearborn plow but pinned rather high and no go in this clay dirt. Better to do a good job with a 1 bottom.
