A 16 Deere 100 chisel plow drug out about once every three years to fill in water runs created in spring by runoff.

We drag out a John Deere 10 bottom plow every now or our Degelman Quad 5 cultivator. But that's about it

Little of everything, got new sweeps on, got new harrow teeth in the other day. Bunch of new tires, hydraulic hoses (cant believe them cheap originals made it this far, I dont think they even have steel braids)
I had a bunch of bent shanks and a couple broken ones. Few springs that must have been pulled too hard cause they are bent in the middle.
It will get me through what I need to do this fall with it but the rockshaft tube has been patched and the bolts through the shanks are only acceptable.
The shanks themselves are in pretty nice shape, when we bought it back in the 90's it already had the plastic wear strips on so that helped a lot.

Kinda suprising how reasonable tillage parts have been, I think by the time I'm done I still won't have 5 grand into it, tires and hydraulic hoses have been by far the most expensive.

Mine might be a 49, I think they said it was 52 but never put a tape to it. Been planning on measuring the spacing, I thought when I ordered 100 sweeps I'd be good but I came up like 5 short. Must be 6" spacing, I was thinking 7.5"

Ha ha, I was going to post the same thing except mine is a 14'. Tires hold air and the greasable bushings in those wheels have lasted longer than any Bourgault wheel bearing I have ever seen. Done lots of breaking with that thing.

If you guys want old I sometimes use a couple of old stone-boats to drag stuff around, those must be 100 years old...

Give the title of the video a copy and paste if you got the time, thanks.

Ya I had to do some tires on mine few years back already and mine still has those nylon braid plastic hoses but the covering is all falling off so like you, one of these days gonna replace them all. The small diameter ones for the wings are the worst, the full size actual lift lines are still intact.
Spacing on those is oddball, its just over 6.5 inches, 6.7 to be exact, must have been something in Cornbinder's wisdom with an oddball number like that lol. I've had to move a few around on mine to make it more able to deal with trash, but with that deep frame spreading the ranks they do work well.
We'll both have the same five section main frame, book actually calls it 48, and if yours has the two extension shanks on each end outside the frame, then that is what they call 51. Funny though when you measure them they come out a foot bigger lol.
If you need any tech on cylinders or anything or tooth patterns just ask, I have the book for mine.
