Do you have your tape to the far side of the landslide, or bumped up against the inside edge?


Far side.
Both 12" plows measure within 1/4" of each other.

Even the 10" Brinly I have doesn't measure 10" I get 9-1/4"

I'll get the tapes out on mine tomorrow. I did hook the tape to the inside edge of my moldboard on my new 12" and just held it outward, and it looked like a full 12".

Well, doug, I guess that's the case! Curiousity got to me, so I meaasured my new 12", with almost no wear at all, and one of my 10" with almost zero use....got the exact same measurements you did! I guess the physics of the way the plow works makes a cut further than the things measure???

Probably more like why a 2x4 is really 1.5x3.5. Things just don't measure up anymore. :lol:

Now for someone to measure an 8" plow to see if it measures out just a bit over 7".

Thanks a bunch guys for the info on how to determine plow size! :thumbs: I purchased a brinly plow a year or so ago at auction and have scratched my head on several occasions trying to determine just what size plow I have.

Yes, that's right. Sears was about 7.5, Wheel horse more like 7.75. If I can, I will measure my 6" DB this week (it's in storage.)

Looks like whatever a plow measures, you go up to the next full inch for the size. 9 1/4= 10", 7+ = 8", and so on.

So who has access to a full size 14, 16, or 18 inch plow to see if it carries right up the range?

Our 5 bottom is out at Dad's, but I'll try to get a measurement this week.

General rule of thumb on the Brinly plows..............Cat 0 3 pt hitch plows are 12" and the Sleeve hitch plows are usually 10" unless you get ahold of the older ones.
