I just bought this plow and go to pick it up on sunday. It is kind of what I wanted to build and I may modify it some but it is a good starting point for what I wanted. My goal is to have a plow that anyone could hook on to at our plow day and give plowing a try. I might make it into a one bottom depending on how hard it is to pull. I would like it to be able to be pulled by a garden tractor that doesn't have any added weight.
Here are some pictures from the ad

Look to be 6 or 8" plows. If 6"ers, then an unweighted tractor might pull it fine...all depending on soil conditions. If they are 8" plows, it might be more than an unweighted tractor can handle, unless a large unweighted garden tractor. Neat setup!

It will be interesting to see how the plow works. The guy I am buying it from just got it and has not tried to use it at all. It is very much like what I had in mind to build. The 2 levers raise or lower the two large steel wheels but I don's see any up or down for the tail wheel. That might have to be changed but I will not know untill next spring when I get a chance to use it. I think it will look sharp behind my Massey Ferguson 10 narrow front tractor. The guy says they are 6 inch plow bottoms. Just by looking at the way they are laid out it looks like it should be able to be made to work without to much trouble. I'll have more pictures tomorrow night.

Mike
That is the plow that I had in mind.
Somebody has spent a ton of time on that thing already, but some new eyes can see more improvements.
Wasn't going to get that detailed on the first build but this thing seems to have a good share of the engineering already done.
If you can snag that puppy you will have quite a trailer plow.
I am going to turn my attention back to the 4855 and let you do the plow thing, as I really need to get more done.

Thats a nice looking little plough.Looking forward to more pics of it. Would be neat to see it in action.Something like that at a plough day will sure attract attention and there'll be lots who would like to hook up to it and give it a try.Larry

Well I got back from a 6 hour road trip to pick up the plow. It sure is a cute bugger. I will probably redo the front hitch but I think this one will stay a 2 bottom plow if it will plow ok. If I can find another single bottom plow I will build a one bottom pull type plow to match this one. No new pics tonight as I left it in the truck and will unload it tomorrow night.

I am glad you are going to keep it a 2 bottom plow. It really looks neat.

You can use it for pattern to make a one-bottom. It's a fantastic find. Hope it works well.

I have been looking the plow over and see a couple of things that I am going to change. The main frame is built well enough but the axles will need to be beefed up/redone to stand up to dragging the plow around the field. That and redoing the hitch looks like all that will need to be done by spring. I will have to make sure it is up and running by fall. We are planning to have another fall plow day next year. From all the good responces we recieved from the first one, we have decided to have another plow day.
