1035 Horse Power ploughing 32 furrows at a time


Recommended Posts

Well, it's taken since September to finish this lot,infact the front mounted Kvernerland still needs it's decals,and I'll need to re-do the depth wheels,but those were the only one's I had at hand today,I've noticed in the short time I've been on this forum that quite a few guy's don't link front mounted implements,but if I was a farmer in this reccesion,high fuel costs etc,a 50% increase in production just by useing a front mounted plough would get my vote,just my 2 cent worth,all comments welcome

Very nice ploughing there, youd bearly get in my gate with one of them....

Is that a Apra cat D8 i spy under the bench?

Hi Nick,no it's not an Apra D8,it is an EMD D9G with Kelly ripper,it was a kit,and a pig to build,smudged photocopied instruction,and no rear hydraulics for the ripper,got there in the end though
