Depending on if you have fluid filled tires they are a two bottom without even less the ballast. I would look for a 3 bottom in 16" width.

Sizeing a plow to your tractor can bring up a few issues.

Ballast, which has already been discussed, accuratly.

Desired depth, and soil type are the next two.

Michigan has very diverse soils, from beach sand to some of the heavier clays. Without the soil type info, I don't know how hard it will pull.

But don't fret, I can still help.

Get the three bottom. Plows are usually, but not always desighned so facilitate removal of the rear bottom.

To correctly plow with one bottom removed, You must first, remove the rear moldboard, cutter, and standard from the frame. Then, attach the tail wheel, and/or, gauge wheel forward on the plowbeam. Usually, but not always, you will find that the wheel assemblys will have the same attaching bolt pattern as the standards and cutters.

Next, you may need to check your hitch allignment, and tractor wheel spaceing. Then go plow.

My farm also has many soil types, and I have a 6 bottom, that in some conditions, I must turn into a 5 bottom.

Some plow mfgrs. make kits to add bottoms also, so before you buy, check out what you can do, be it add or subtract bottoms to get the correct draft for your tractor.

One more tip. If useing a fully integral plow, you may want to check out the load control on the 3pt. Sometimes lack of use frezzes them up. This will help maintain a consistent depth in uneven terrain as the attitude of your tractor changes.
