Overum ploughs

Been ploughing with a 5 furrow newholland./ overum fot the last week or so and it makes an nice job and found it nice and easy to keep straight, hydraulic reset is good too, found it pulled up less stones than a spring reset plough, but I did have a leg come out of place in a rocky feild, was an easy sort though ..... One thing I really didn't like was the skimmers, they just wouldn't flow properly, chocked up at the slightest thing and was never happy with how they were burying although the owner had welded old skimmer point on to the new ones which probably didn't help things.... No idea on the plastic board though

Those are the later style skimmers bolted to a welded bracket on the leg . I used a 4furrow with those for a few years and they just don't seem to work right in some conditions . I much prefer the earlier style that are clamped to the leg . The overum chap who demos for Scotland also fitted some spacers which really helped in heavier going on our demo , so we had them added when we bought a new plough years ago . The same could be done with longer bolts and washers .

Also added a few pics of the reversible and flush points.
