Rubber track helps metal track

Post #1 by Rolyd8k » Sat Sep 06, 2008 4:43 pm

finished ploughing last saturday with help from the rubber track challenger,
a lot of chopped straw to get rid of, but its 8 12" furrows buried it ok,its
the first time my son,s ploughed, apart from a wobble hear and there
he did good :thumbs_up: the challenger was faster than me but with 10 14"
i covered 73 acres to his 32, but i did spend more time in the seat ;)and
we beat the rain :thumbs_up:

Hi Graham,yes the challengers going well,and is master of that 8 furrow plough,but not
enough weight for the twin leg moleplough,plenty of power but after stopping and going
to start again it stood and spun,its now matched up to a single leg beam drainer,while
the big double is behind a D8k and that dont spin :thumbs_up:

what make is the single leg drainer ,as it looks the same as the one i have only mine has no ram ,the leg is about 24 " with a 4" ceramic expander
i have not used mine yet as the tyres were rotten and i have stripped it down to paint but have not got the time yet :dizzy:

Great video clip Roly.
Done a bit of mole ploughing myself with my 1940 D7 7M and a Miles Mole drainer. It's very hard graft !!
