I will see what I can get it for. He want £200 ($300) originally for it....... Ideally I would like to get it for £50 to £75 (-$75 to $113),

I will keep you posted.

Sounds about right, it would be half that over here and considering they don't grow on trees over there, you're probably in the right ballpark.

Good Luck.

Hey Alan
That plow that you used as an example was mine. I have sold it. That plow came from an Cub cadet original, and was purchased at the same time as the tractor. It was an 8" and the older ones only had the single hole for mounting.

Mike,

You had me looking (a lot) at that pic when you offered it for sale... Timing was wrong for me.  Wasn't in the budget.

Do you mind me asking what ballpark you ended up selling it for?

Alan,
I forget what I got for it but it did bring the asking price. The plow had very little use on it. The 8" plows are definately more sought after than the 10".

Just an update. After much deliberation I decided to go for it as garden tractor ploughs rarely come up over here in the UK. I managed to negtioate a reasonable price after much haggling. The seller confirmed that he use to be involved in competitive ploughing matches and that the mould board is of the style pertaining to European ploughs.

Once it's back home, I will take some detailed photos of the plough for those interested.

Thanks for everyone's input on this thread.

I have now collected it and taken some photos of the plough below. It will need a good clean and an application of grease. I hope to get to a ploughing match somewhere in the UK to try it out.

that's the nice thing about in here, I just go down to the farm and test all the plows I want, whenever I need to.
