I have a Sears 917.25138 plow that I saved from the scrap pile years ago, but I've never known what it fits or thought about using it with my lawn tractors. It is a 42 inch plow and I'm sure there are parts missing.

 

What does it fit? Does anyone have a manual, clear diagram, or the actual plow on their tractor? Could this be used on other tractors with some mount modifications?

 

Here's some pictures.

Thanks for the help.

Neat old plow. I think it is from around 1968. Here a manual :

Looks like the only things missing from that are the release and angle rods.

That plow was based on the ones used from 63-66. When Roper started building the tractors in 67, they redesigned the plows and this should've been the first or second one after that redesign. They used that same design (with minor changes) all the way thru the mid 70's.

If you need measurements on the rods, let me know. I can get it fairly easy for you.

KennyP and MH81 thank you for the information. I don't remember if I have those rods somewhere or if I ever recovered them with the plow. I'll take a look around, but they don't seem familiar. This plow might be up for trade since I don't have any older Sears GTs. I kinda feel as though it would be an easy project though. 

 

Maybe there's a cheap, or freebie SS 12 in my future.

You might be able to adapt that blade to something else.
