How to Adjust Ferguson Plows


Ferguson has been making tractor plows for nearly 100 years. These plows are designed to prepare soil for seeding or planting. They are hooked up to the back of a tractor, and the tractor drags the plow over the soil, which turns it over and brings nutrients to the surface. Depending on the width of the cut you would like the plow to make, you can adjust it right from the unit.

Things You'll Need

  • Allen wrench
  • Power off your tractor, and kneel down next to the rotating cross shaft of the plow. This is in the center of the plow near where it hitches to the tractor.

  • Loosen the nuts on the U bolts that are securing the cross shaft. Note the position of the shaft, as this will be your starting point to adjust from.

  • Increase the width of the cut by rotating the shaft one-eighth of an inch forward. This will increase the width by 1 inch.

  • Rotate the shaft backwards to decrease the width of the cut.

  • Rotate the shaft until you have achieved the desired width. When finished, tighten the nuts around the U bolts to secure the shaft.
