Whirlwind Terrace PlowAdrian Arnold, Tipton, Kan., built a "whirl-wind" terrace plow out of a 5-bottom plow (Vol. 9, No.3). He removed the first and fifth bottoms and spaced out the remaining three bottoms to make room for vertically-mounted augers that mount ahead of each bottom. The augers are belt-driven by a pto-powered gear-box. As the bottoms slice off a furrow of dirt, the augers throw it to the side. On the first pass Arnold runs the tractor slow so dirt rolls over in a hump. On the second pass, he runs faster so dirt is thrown on top of the first pass. Requires about a 120 hp. tractor. A motor-cycle wheel fitted with an odometer keeps track of mileage when doing custom work. Contact: FARM SHOW Followup, Adrian's Mfg., Adrian Arnold, Box 127, Tipton, Kan. 67485 (ph 913 373-5685).
