Ok guys
I think a middle buster would be easier to pull deeper and do a better job of busting up rotary tiller compaction versus a plow
I've used a plow before but the compacts need a lot more weight! Having issues trying to keep tractor straight pulling it and just looking for thoughts 3038e tractor

I agree with the subsoilers, a middle buster really isn't designed to turn virgin soil like a mold board plow. Run a subsoiler and then till or better yet, you have a 3 series, get a small set of chisel plows.

I’ll run the subsoiler through the gardens before I till. I run it as deep as my 1025r will pull it. So far I can go full depth with it. In the fall I usually just till the gardens, but this fall I ran out of time. Instead I used my Heavy Hitch combo ripper. Put the V plow on and ran it over the gardens. Pulled it full depth and worked pretty much like a chisel plow. Buried some of the garden debris and broke open the ground which was quite hard.

I run a subsoiler on my 2038. Plenty of power, but I do occasionally run out of traction. I’m using mine to break a new garden site. Ground was woods, never been civilized before. I’m still trying to get the rocks and roots out. It works great.
