I have 2 of the PP-500 sleeve hitch plows and one PP-1200 3-point plow. 3 of my tractors have a 3-point hitch, so I decided to convert one 10" plow to fit the 3-point mast of the 12". Later on, I will build another mast. But for now, I can just take the u-bolts off and use which ever I choose.

Here's a pic of the two I painted last year.

2015-04-21 11.57.04.jpg

 

I started by getting a measurement and angle for the plate to attach to the mast. Using the 12" beam as a guide, I found the back side of the mounting plate was 2" forward of the front coulter mount hole and at a 10° angle. I then took the 10" beam off and the adjuster apart as I plan to paint this also.

Here's the beam.

Here's the layout for the cut.

I set the band saw at 10° and made the cut.

Here I have set up to weld the plate at that cut.

And after welding.

This is the plate layout.

I was able to wire brush the parts and get a coat of Rust Reformer on there before coming in yesterday. Hope to get some White on the beam and the Galvenized on the adjuster parts today!

 

I found an error in the plate layout from my original plans uploaded here, so I have edited it.

Good looking project.  Are you going to be able to adjust the 3 point enough so the plow runs vertical with the right rear of the tractor in the furrow?  Looks like you have the plow mounted square on the 3 point.  Or am I missing something?

I believe the 10* tip is accomplished on the three point A frame with pin location

The 3-point mast has the angle built in to it.

I may have to add one at some point.

Yes I believe it does.

 

A wheel like Olcowhand makes would do it.

They are made to get dirty. The paint is to keep rust at bay! Thanks, m8!

Hi I've thought about using a horse plow and converting it to 3 pt, how is yours working out, do you have any photos of it?

Thanks

I squirted a little paint on it this afternoon. Fired up the wood heater to get the chill off things.

I did put a coat of Rustoleum self-etching primer on first. Should last a little while!

I just got a mental picture of Kenny using a squeeze bottle to "squirt" on paint!  :rolling:
