Dad has been pulling a 5-16 plow in furrow for over 30 years with 20.8x38 tires. Fits in the furrow fine.

I've got a 560 6-16 plow and i use it with my 1566 with 20.8-38 works just fine. Once you get it adjusted just right you'll be a plowin fool.

A 60 grit flap disc on a 4 1/2" grinder works great cleaning rust off... :) ...PWR

Since our "all summer flood" last year there is plenty of sand around. I just don't have any available to go plow in. I know that would work. The flap disc might be a very good alternative for now. I would like to get the thing cleaned up and then protected. No sense in leaving it so long it gets pitted.

I like hearing of the 20.8 tires and and the 6-16 working so good. Hopefully by fall I will have the 1566 up in shape to try the plowing. Sounds like fun. Believe it or not, I have not done any plowing to amount to beans since before this 560 plow was new!

Another approach mentioned in the past is to use paint. It provides a slick surface for a while and gradually wears away to bare metal.

I got the No. 560 unloaded and grabbed a couple photos. A no-till neighbor parked his planter here just after dark last night before getting rained out. He said he thought I had too much plow for the tractor. I played dumb for awhile and then he caught on. The gas 4020 was just for parking purposes. :D

Old timers always claimed a brick worked good for scouring moleboards but I would prefer something like the flap disc or a "roto-loc" on a 1/4" die grinder. We always paint our moleboards with CIH's "Til-coat" paint to prevent rusting. Next time you use the plow the paint will be gone by the time you get to the far end of the field.

Years ago I had a 560 x14" plow. I replaced the steel trash boards with the plastic ones . Wouldn't go back to the steel .

Oh heck those moldboards aren't even rusty. They'll shine right up on the first pass.

I got a manual for the plow today and I see there is a part call the "Vertical Limiter" that I did not get with the plow. The manual says to remove the center link of a 3-point, so apparently it must operate differently. Once the dimension is established, is that limiter a solid piece or does it telescope in use? I do not know where to obtain the part, but if I knew how it worked I could probably make one. Or find something that would work. Any ideas?

Ron
