The other day I was over at my buddy's place and he was showing me a plow he picked up for about $20. According to his dad it's a circular plow??? Anyway if any of you more knowledgeable folks out there can ID this plow and maybe give some info it would be great. Thanks.

In this one it looks like a "P 153" is stamped into the metal

We can't quite make out what is stamped here but it kind of looks like "ISBore" which means nothing to me.

It appears to be a horse drawn single gang disc to me.
Rotating plows or disc plows look like this from what I know about them. Hope this helps Bill

Bill, This is so funny, but I just saw the same disc that you have pictures of on the new show on history channel called Mountain Men episode #1. The guy was using it to disc in Kale seed. Yours is missing the front axle and tongue.

Hmm, maybe I can catch it on the repeat. I'll set the recorder to watch for it. Thanks Brian.

Still well worth the $20 he paid. Heck, the seat's probably worth that.

Thanks for sharing pics, Bill.

I think that fits a DB TriTrac. I have been looking through the DB TT Manual I have and their is one very similar to that shown in the manual. If it does hang on to it, if I get the TT bought I will be after it.

Thanks, it sure looks like the same thing especially in the video. This is quite exciting. If your interested in it I put you in contact with Dale, unfortunately he has no computer skills and has no desire to acquire them so you will have to deal with him the old fashion way. :)

Bill, Maybe that guy on Mountain Men converted his to horse drawn, but it look identical to the one you have photo's of and also the one in the video posted above

The one in the video has 8 discs per gang and the TT disc has 4, but they may have built 2 different disc since the front end can adjust from 4 to 6 feet.

And the part P153 seems to match some DB part numbers.

Dale seemed to think that a mule was used to pull the plow, but the tongue look more like it could be hooked to a tractor to me. It could be that the disc harrow was used with a mule and when the Tractor came along it was just hitched to the tractor... maybe.

I wish I could make out the stamp on that one piece, that might really give us a clue to it's origin.

A lot of the older stuff was original made to be horse drawn, and later adapted for tractor use.

No I missed it. The wife brought home a car load of computers from a friend so I spent the night going through all the them to see if they were worth anything. I need to set the recorder.
