Well,that picture sure does muddy up this thread... http://gardentractor...4700#entry74700

We had it nailed down as a WH.  Even a model# & manual for it.

 

They mustve made the same thing for both companies.

I hope you can get the hitch made to pull this plow! That will be a very great thing!

This is my wheel horse slot hitch plow.

It's from the late sixties. Made by brinly I'm sure. But quite different than yours. Mine is a 12 inch.
That's a Bolens sleeve hitch plow behind it. Also, 12 inch.

Joe, to me your plow in the foreground looks just like the Brinly behind it, just with a different adapter bolted in place.  On mine, there is a distinct difference in the adjustment screw mechanism, and on mine the tongue is welded into place not bolted.  I'm guessing that my Massey 12, even the one with the 13-15 hp clone wouldn't pull your 12 inch plows very well at all!

I won't have time for something like that till late September.  Took the computer outside to wait on my daughter's return from school and kept trucking with review questions.  Only break I took from studying today was a 20 minute walk with my wife before supper and some occasions between review sessions to post on here.  Nearly 10:30 and I just finished with another series of test questions.  I thought I knew this stuff, but man they can pick at all the little corners.  Plus, there is often a right answer and a "more" right answer.

Here's a thread on my slot hitch plow if you want to look at it and compare.

Yes, both my plows are the same. Brinly made, just with different hitch adapters. That's what makes yours so interesting. Maybe, yours is more like a class 0 three point plow? I've used both plows the wheelhorse with a 12 horse, and the bolens I used with a 16 horse ford. Really no problem pulling them. In my garden plot, soft soil. I like the slot hitch better. It's just much more solid than the sleeve hitch!

What size is your plow?

Joe

That turned out really nice!  When I get a chance I'll have to clean this one up and paint it too.

it was my understanding that most of the Wheel horse tillage attachments were brinly built, as far back as the walk-behind tractors. Loking though the wheel horse book it doesn't appear that WH made much of anything but the tractor units, and outsourced the rest. I'm sure this pattern was followed by other companies.

If you look closely, you'll see Brian's has a curved shank. It's like it's made to mount to a hitch that's lower to the ground. This would result in less depth at plowing? It seems it not uncommon for the length of the shank to be longer or shorter, with the hitch making up the difference. That wouldn't change anything as far as working the ground. Just makes the transport position higher or lower.
And I see yours has no culter wheel. I'm sure they were often removed for working an existing garden plot. But, I expect they would help keep the plow plowing streight? Maybe 8" plows didn't usually have cutler wheels?
