thankyou everyone for some sound advice I think my downfall has been not shallowing off, did improve on that at my last match also I did experiment with putting the front disc out wider and it did make a difference, but I need to work at it to get it right :scratchhead:. Dave , sarn match...
right arcobob thankyou that explains it a bit more clearly, shallowing off rom the 8th furrow down can be easily forgotten when ploughing but it is important some competitors I know only shallow off only on there neighbours side is that common I don't know ?,is it best for the furrow under the...
from a book I have it reads as follows - conventional ploughing,
the ploughman to win will have the highest number of points in one aspect, taken in the following order ;
1 -general appearance,2-uniformity,3 -seedbed,4- firmness,5-finish,6-start,7-ins and outs,8- opening.
very sad news indeed today, I can only say that we will be sadly missed in the classic class, ploughed against him several times he was a true fellow competitor, always met up with him in three cocks vintage and onslo steam rallies to have a banter.

I'm looking at upgrade the hydraulic lift arms and levelling box etc. on the 780 to the bigger david brown models type,suitable then to mount a ransomes ts 86 plough ,which model would suit as donor parts,i was thinking 990/996 ? ,sound advice would be appreciated
ok it made sense to have a deeper landside ,lot of the ransomes landsides were only between 41/2 - 5 inch ok for grassland ploughing ,looks like I'm going to make a new one after this weekend deeper and longer and see how we go,,is there any point putting a deeper one on the front ?
Morris md4 is the best ive come across been using it for 6 years, far better than wd 40,spray it on and it comes in a gal can,no need to rub it off before ploughing,i spray all the working shiny metal when I've finished .
interesting,i would say tcn 9w are on the plough now and are quite common ,if I got hold of new genuine 2w would the fit early tcn ts 86 frogs the bolt holes look the same location, I see Westlake has some, or cut mine down then like you say.
