I found a 12" three point moldboard plow on Craigslist a few weeks ago and went over and took a look at it then. I told the owner that I was very interested but thought the price was a little high. He came down $25 and I told him I would think about it.

I found a buyer on here for the Ohio Steel 10" sleeve hitch plow I had a couple of weeks ago and after doing a few cash repairs for folks I called the owner Friday with my top price and he agreed. I picked it up today and put it on the John Deere 140H3 to test the fit. Now I have to take it out to the SIL's to try it out and get it adjusted in.

I can't find the thread where someone told me the model number and if you would repost the information it would be appreciated. That way I can try to find the manual for it.

Thanks,
Bill

PP-1200 is the model number Bill. If you feel it's more plow than you want, I have a pretty much brand new Brinly sleeve hitch 10" plow I'll trade towards it! And I just built an adjustable gauge wheel on this 10" too.

Daniel,
I'll let you play with it in October if you want but thinking I'll keep this one for awhile. Found a couple on eBay for over twice what I paid. One was painted a real purty yeller and green but if I did that my old 140 would be afraid to hurt the paint.

Littledeere thanks for the heads-up on the manual.

Bill

Bill, that's a great looking plow. Just don't bump the SIL's house while you're playing...

With my luck I'll probably wipe out the side of his new barn/shop.

Nice plow Bill. I'll be interested in how the 140 does with pulling that.

Nice plow Bill. I'll be interested in how the 140 does with pulling that.


It does look a bit "big" compared to the 10" I had but I talked to a couple of guys who have the same plow and both thought the 140 should pull it fine. Also emailed back and forth with Daniel about it and he said the same. One of the guys I PM'ed back and forth with has the same plow for sale in the classifieds here and says he pulled it fine with a JD316. Might give me a reason to turn the K321 into a K341 since the K321 smokes a bit on start up.

With 90# of weight on each rear tire and a home-built front weight bar that will hold five 42# weights so I don't see any problem with traction but it might be short on power on sodded ground and if so I can always slide the plow over a bit to take a smaller bite. It should be fine in soil that has already been worked at 11 or 12" though.

Thanks,
Bill

Took some photos of the Ohio Steel 10" sleeve hitch and the Brinly 12" three point together.

Definitely a difference when they are side by side. Got me wondering if the 140 will pull it?

I bought a PP-1200 Brinly today so I may be picking your brains for some information.  Thanks in advance!
