Similarly, you may ask, how much horsepower do I need for 2 bottom plow?
It is a Ferguson 2 bottom plow that requires about 35 drawbar horsepower to pull.
Likewise, how much horsepower does it take to pull a 5 bottom plow? There are so many different soils, and different conditions such as wet and dry, the rule of thumb of 16 hp per bottom didn't really mean a lot. We sometimes plowed with chains on the land side wheel, as the wheel in the furrow had better traction.

3000-4000 lbs is needed to full a 3 bottom plow. It depends on how fast you want to go, Now days it takes more horsepower to go fast 6 mph or more.
How do you use a bottom plow?
Next, to use a plow correctly, make sure it is level with the ground, side-to-side and front-to-back. Adjust the top link and lift arm as necessary. Plow your first furrow down the center of your garden area. Raise the plow, turn around, and put the right rear tractor tire in that furrow.
