Today I built 2 more gauge wheel kits to fit Brinly 10" plows. I have 4 of these plows I am getting ready for my plow days and I wanted gauge wheels on all of them, as it makes plowing so much easier. I already had 2 plows fitted with them, now all 4 will have them. I need to make one more sleeve to 3pt adapter tool bars, then I'll be done.
I don't think I have enough proper steel to make the tool bar today, but gonna poke around & see what I have.

This is my last adapter that slides to adjust attachment position.

Here is a gauge wheel mounted.

Daniel, those gauge wheel kits are pretty awesome. I wouldn't mind having one on the ONE Brinly sleeve hitch plow I have and use on the Caterpillar. Are you going to eventually set up to build and sell the bracketry? Obviously the wheel tire is a $10 item available on the floor of most of our shops LOL. In fact, I don't think we are using that garden cart any more LOL.

I have been wanting to for a while, just not gotten to it. Hoping to make several this winter to sell.

Daniel, go ahead and put me on the list for a gauge wheel setup, because I fight my plow a lot with the quick adjust setup that is on it (homemade before me). Keep thinking of swapping it out for something better, but might just build a solid linkage one day since I only use it on the one tractor lol.

Very nice fab work! I bet those would sell faster then you could make them! If I were you, I would make a couple and bring them to the GTtalk plow day to sell. So people can see how they work and let the word get out!

I think the part that is the coolest about them is that they BOLT ON USING FACTORY HOLES. That is a big plus to any great implement add on, is the ability to get the same essential setup start point every time.

Those look awesome even in the early stages. I am going to paint my Brinly equipment yellow so don't do much on the bracket for my plow unless you have a spray can of equipment yellow laying around lol.

No yellow paint in spray can, so I can just primer your bracket. I'll PM you.

I sure won't get rich, and truly don't have the time. But they make plowing SO much more fun! No constant fiddling with lift position. The added fun of plowing with these is the only reason I wanted to make them available at my plow day. I want people to have as much fun as possible. Selling was never my intent when starting this thread.
