Moldboard plow

Recommended Posts

Went to the annual tractor show in Rock Falls IL. today (sorry forgot my camera). I was talking to a pretty knowledgeable plow guy, I have been trying to identify my plow since I got it a few years ago with a Case I bought. Dave said it looks like a walk behind plow. So I thought I would post a picture here and see if our vast array of experts here can help with the I.D.

Yes, it looks like an old walk behind plow. Possibly made by Brinly. Also, looks like it is missing the coulter which would mount on a rod/round shaft and go up through the cast eye and adjust height with the set screw. Certainly can be used without the coulter and pulled behind a tractor. You will also need a sleeve hitch to connect between the tractor and plow. You can find them either on eBay or Craigslist in White Pigeon, MI. See the Brinly website on how to adjust the plow.

I assume a plow is from a walk behind if the adjusting crank faces backwards, like yours does. On the ones designed to be on a riding tractor, the crank faces forward so you can adjust from the seat.

The coulter is really needed if you are plowing ground with either sod or alot of trash on the top. Without the coulter the trash just wraps around the blow beam and makes a mess, and with sod the coulter cuts the sod so you get a nice furrow.

Thanks for the input. I have an old style sleeve hitch not the brinley but either way the home made hitch should be redone. Makes perfect sense that the crank for the walk behind faces back and the pull behind faces forward. Sometimes the obvious escapes my notice.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
