Hi,

 

I am new to garden tractors and their attachments. I recently purchased a MTD 990 and am looking for a garden plow. I have found one with an asking price of $225.00. Is this the going price for this type of plow? I have attached two pictures of the plow. Thanks.

The 3 point model like that usually goes between $200 & $300 depending on condition.  That one doesn't have the coulter wheel & is pretty rusted up, so I'd offer $200.

Good point. I wasn't even thinking about a coulter wheel. Is this the type of plow I should be looking for? I've seen several sleeve type plows for sell also, but I don't know if they would work with my 3 pt hitch.

This IS the type plow you want for 3 point.  To use the sleeve type with 3 point, one must have an adapter tool bar.  The 3 point style are easier to adjust in my opinion.

Thanks for the information. I know what I'm looking for now. Are the coulter wheels manufacturer specific or do they make a universal type that would work? I've only been looking for a couple of days and don't want to be too quick to purchase one. On the other hand I don't know how often they come along.

If you look at the pics closely, you can see where the coulter was bolted. That looks to be the same as the one I bought. Offer $150 and use the coulter as the reason why.

Coulters all look similar, but due to mounting hardware, that makes them brand specific.

For reference, I picked one up for $150 last December.

That setup looks great. How deep can you plow? Are the weights a requirement for plowing? Thanks.

The gentleman said he would haggle a little bit. He is also going to check to see if he has a coulter wheel that will fit it. Thanks.

... How deep can you plow? ...

 

The rule of thumb is 1/2 the width of the plow.

 

For  10" plow, 5" deep, for a 12", like the one pictured 6".

Weighting REALLY helps, but not always a must.  I fluid fill my tires AND add weights, but then I can get carried away.   :D
