Plough boards Hydrein

Deere 6430

Could some one tell me if kverneland Hydrein boards would turn the furrow over more
if they would scour better in a clay loam than a dowdeswell UCN boards

many thanks.

plough has discs on each furrow if it makes a difference

If not did kverneland make a conventional plough with a board better than a ucn for ploughing out grass.

many thanks.

Thank you. What kverneland boards on an old kv plough would turn it right over? Looking for a old fashioned/really good job to be done, all these modern ploughs tend to leave too much of a broken finish for what I want to do.

If ive seen no8's work to compare , they (hydrein) dont move the furrow slice as far over or up ..... because they have a shallower neck and a slimmer point and less side throw. on the board itself. which makes a difference to 'distruption ' (in a good way) trouble is i found them to work best on very moisty loam or clay based soil , but when it was drying out or dry the wouldnt turn it over very well at all because they lack that final push over on their tail anda tail piece doesnt solve it either , its not quite in the right place or enough of it, common thing i have found actually , bords working fairly well but just not quite well enough, for me anyway.

Ive never had enough time but ive always wanted to modify a common make of general purpose board to do what i want better than most of them do,
Mass producing bodies/mouldboards is done with a cost limitation and also to make sure they or bits of them dont wear out too quickly or farmers would like it as they would be higher running costs.

there was /[s a no3 body as well , not sure if that was a bit like a smaller version of a no 8. but i just dont know.
Don't think the no 8's leave as good a furrow as this.
