 plowing with stabalizer bars?

Should I use my stabilizer bars when I plow? The stabilizer bar also has a slot where the pin inserts for minor movement. I have a two bottom plow (12in.), pulling through topsoil and clay on flat ground using my JD4710 equiped with the draft sensing option. Thanks, web.

I have a similar system on my old MF. I never removed them and use them when plowing. If you don't have them then the plow will move side to side when the plow is up, possibly damaging your tires.

"The stabilizer bar also has a slot where the pin inserts for minor movement."

Yes, that is the setting that I would use. I have heard that some of the old timer plowed without the sta-bars hookup, but our compact tractors have shorter lift arms relative to the tire size. That is one of the reasons, I think that the lift arms hit more on our compacts.

The only time that I don't use my stabilizers is when I have my backhoe on.
