Plow Marker
"I wouldn't plow without it," says Claremont, S. Dak. farmer, Richard Anderson about the plow marker he made for his 8-bottom plow.
Anderson explains that he uses an on-land hitch plow and needs an accurate guide since he doesn't have a tire in the furrow to serve as a guide. The marker extends out to one-half of the plow's plowing width, leaving a mark to center the tractor on, when making the return pass.
The marker, made from a disc hiller off a cultivator, is mounted on an adjustable arm, made of 1 1/2 in. tubing. The arm pivots on the marker frame mounted on the plow.
As the plow's rear cylinder extends, lifting the plow, it also raises the marker. When the cylinder extends, it pulls on a spring connected to an arm. The arm is, in turn, connected to a chain attached to the marker.
