Bought a 10" Brinly yesterday at the Orange Spectacular Allis Chalmers show in Huchinson, MN yesterday for $120! I thought it was a pretty good price. What do you guys think? Being the 5 year old that I am I just HAD to try it out, so I turned over the manure pile :D

Thanks! Would you say I got a fair deal? What is a 10" going for these days?

if I could get that much for a sleeve hitch plow down here, I'd be very happy!

I think it's a reasonable price based on what I've seen on CL here in GA.  Haven't seen any for less than $100 and there haven't been many listed..

It seems to be I good shape and I would say you got yourself a nice plow for a fair price.
As for "good/great/etc" deal... The $ varies so much from location to location it's tough to say.
They are $40 to 200 around here. Not kidding, they are all over the place.

It's a decent price on a nice looking plow, based on what goes around here.

That was not a bad price for a real plow.  New (much cheaper built) plows go for about double that.

I'm glad I got a good deal, and the guy still has tons of attachments, and I have his number :D

Hey congrats my friend! Looks like a fine plow, and it obviously breaks ground :thumbs: Sometimes you get lucky, but generally they get around $125 in my neck of the woods. I wouldn't sell the ones I have for less.

Ok guys, I have a question. I was out looking at it and I can't figure this out. So the share needs to sit flat on the ground, correct? I jacked up the left wheel 5" and it sits crooked, it's too far to the right. I would set me sleeve hitch to compensate, but I already have. Anybody have pictures of their hitch on the plow? I need a shot straight from the back.

So it looks as if the C hitch is straight up and down, correct? Not at an angle like mine.
