Has anybody rigged a small garden tractor moldboard plow on a standard hitch?  Seems posssible with a little ingenuity but am curious to see others attempts.  My tractor is a Snapper 1650 without the 3 point and the plow I don't have a picture of the plow but my nephew said I could borrow this plow almost indefinatly. The funny part is I gave this plow and other attachments to him and his dad along with home made that looks very much like a Gibson after I got them from my dad.  LOL it's all good though because I did "give" them away. :hitting_self_roller: :tapping_fingers:

Take a look at the picture towards the back, its of a tractor with the plow on it.  http://gardentractor...1450-1650-1655/

 

It should be easy to invent an adapter.

Looking at those pictures and remembering what I think the nephews looks like it may take four plus modifications so I'll need to take a closer look at the plow to know whether it's worth the effort and expense.  Thanks.

What does the plows' hitch look like? Pictures of your tractors' existing hitch will help too. Chances are you will need a Brinley Hitch.

Waiting for nephew to send a picture $(KGrHqN,!p8E63Zwhd,sBO4(N3DcBg~~60_12.Jof plow but this is the type of hitch. Unless the nephew has changed the plow, it was a work in progress with the shaft of a Handyman jack for it's tongue.

Until we have pics, it's all speculation.   It does look like you may want to investigate different hitch types for the 1650.  The pic you have there is for just pulling a cart or implement, not lifting a plow out of the ground.

 

If you can find a 3pt for it, then you can build a 3pt to brinly adapter.

Very small wildlife food plot I'm considering using it on.  I have no problem with backing out of the furrow and manually lifting it out.  Of course I would have to have a way to hold it up when moving it to the next furrow.  I'm retired and once I get done taking care of some Seniors I should have lots of time just not lots of money for projects that are just considered play stuff.
