I was wondering if there was any special way to set up the 2 bottom plow on a fast hitch like you do for the cub ?

Thanks Rich

The Super C Operator's Manual contains instructions for setting up the fast hitch for plowing. The manual is available in PDF manuals on this site.

My 200 has the same hitch. Besides the lift cylinder there are two other hydraulic adjustments. There is a flat bar (leveling link) that connects from the hitch to the left side touch control. I don't have this flat bar for my 200, I think it was probably optional equipment. I recall that this piece is necessary to operate a plow properly. I have seen reproductions of this piece for sale. There is also an adjustable tube (depth-adjusting link) that connects from the right side touch control to the fast hitch bail. This tube can be attached to a fixed point or attached to the touch control in order to raise and lower the front of the bail (much like the depth control adjustment on the Cub).

The front adjustment is for the depth control same as a Cub.

The left side adjustment is to level the plow when the right wheel is in the furrow.

Basically you need to set the tread width on the rear wheels so the front bottom takes a full cut while the right rear wheel is somewhere in the furrow. IIRC there's a mathematical formula for this. Then, you adjust the plow depth for your desired depth, and then level the plow side-to-side so it's leaving a level furrow behind you.
