A friend called me first thing this morning to tell me that he spotted a sears 3 point plow at an antique mall this weekend, right before closing time, for 40 bucks.

Looks like someone thought it would make a quaint lawn ornament or something, judging by the paint job.

It's that way around here too.  Usually, if I see a Sears 3 point implement on craigslist, and it is under ebay prices, it's 100 miles away or more.  Since I bought the tractor, I have seen 2 plows for $75 within 50 miles and emailed about them and got no replies.  I am pretty excited to get this one.

Is it a 6" or an 8"? Nice condition, whatever size it is.

I was comparing it to the 8 inch plow that you took all those measurements to post for me recently.  It seems about the same, but then I looked at the short side of the lift bar, and it measures about 3/8" shorter than in your picture.

I then took the brinley plow that I had bought which says BR8 on it,, and set them side by side.  The bigest difference that stood out was the top of the share/bottom of the moldboard.  The new plow is about 3/4 of an inch shorter at that point.

Any web info I found for my 917 number says 8" or 10".  I guess that doesn't mean it couldn't be a 6" plow.  Did Sears make one?

Yeah, they made a 6". I have one with the David Bradley tag on it.

Let me see if I can find the number you listed.

Just to verify, try measuring it this way

And see what you get.

So, unless the tag has been transplanted, Kenny verified it as an 8". What's your rear tire size?

That must be a 14" plow?  Holding a tape measure over it, that dimension is about 7 1/2 inches.

The size is 7.5-12. I guess that would mean 23X7,5-12.  The tape shows 7 1/2 wide.

My 917.253010 plow measures about 7.5" also. But, that's got to be an 8" and not a 6". Tire size is good for the plow, go make some furrows!

Hey guys!

I just picked up one of these this morning for $40. (U.S.) so I don't think I got taken advantage of.

While mine is missing the upper link arm attachment and the land slide, it would seem yours is missing the culter and mounting bracket. 

Mine seems to have been used very little and is in good shape despite the missing parts. The missing upper link arm attachment can be fixed easily from a search through the drop bin at work but, where does one get a land slide for one of these?

I'm already thinking I'll have to make one.
