Nice pictures Cerin :)

i didnt think 1.5 ton would be that much for the deere :-\

nice pics, good to see a decent tractor ::)

What you have to remember is its not just what the ploughs actual weight is, its also affected by the amount of overhang beyond the back of the tractor. My old 6 furrow mounted Lemken weighed 1.9 tons but the actual weight exerted on the lift pins of the tractor was 6 tons when we had it on the lap top to calibrate the hydraulics and draft control. I had about 1500kg of front ballast on the tractor to keep it down and balanced

aye your right, suppose the plough overhangs about 2meters from the pivot being the rear axel ::)

Try 5ish mate,

As gav said its about the overhang but you also have to rember that its not 1.5ton static weight, its moving, and most revs shake the tractor when they roll over
