I would like to, but don't seem to have the time.  With the boys here, I noticed either we are not going fast enough, or are going to slow, take your pick:lol:

Ground is dry here in NY. Glad to see we are not the only ones that run a single dual for plowing. Given.....first time opening overhead door, the tractor dad wanted out First, was parked in the Back.

It’s a rare occasion when we don’t run the landslide dual.  Is that a DMI plow?

DMI was Dietrich Manufacturing Inc, based in Goodfield IL.  They sold out to CIH in the 90’s.  They built a variable width plow that Kinze designed.  Big heavy hydraulic adjustable plows.  Plant is still there building CNH equipment.

DMI is/was an equipment manufacturer. They made some equipment like plows and rippers along with dual wheels for tractors, and shock bumpers for pickups. I’m sure they made other items as well. Grandpa’s 1086 he bought new has DMI duals on it because there were no IH duals available at the time it came in.

Made "famous" (?) by the Ecolo-Tiger. Sold a pile of them in the early 2000's at the CNH dealer I worked for. Still see them everywhere around here. Blue paint was an eye catcher.

Ahhhhhh.......about 20....or 30 years too New for me to be familiar with then.  Our plows are old Ford/Oliver.  We have a green set of six bottoms that are identical, other than having straight coulters.

How many NH3 toolbars do you suppose they sold over the years?  Field cultivators?  There were a bunch of DMI gravity wagons around here too.  Of course Goodfield is only an hour away.

Their short-line product was good enough to be bought up by a major player, so I'm guessing a lot.

Called “Tiger mate” field cultivators were’t they?  Made a version I and II, I believe.
