Bought this from a friend of mine. He gave me a banging deal on it and I appreciate it.
Thanks Chuck

Anyways, I almost hate to put it in the ground. I's never been assembled, seen dirt, nothing.
It's a 12" plow. Has to have been made by Ohio Steel with that adjuster.

Want to put it behind my ST16 or GT19.9 and see what happens, but I almost want to preserve it as is.

Decisions, decisions

That is a really nice plow. Your dilemma is understandable. Do you own and display trailer queens? If not, I would go ahead and use it but, do not modify it. Enjoy the new toy feel and be happy. Good Luck, Rick

I rarely get new toys but, every once in awhile, I get to break in a new toy. Take pics! Good Luck, Rick

Hi MH81, that is a good looking new plow I can understand what your says here's the answer to your problem box it up and send it to me I'll assemble it and try it behind the ST16 and give you a written report :wave: :dancingbanana:  OH well it was a thought, like you sooner or later I'd have give it a try.

Wow! Don't see that very often! That would be a hard decision to make! But, I'd have to give it a pull!

I'm going to differ here and say if it were me i'd try trading down for a working plow + extras, or try selling it to a wh collector then buy a used one with $$ left over..

Alan,   It's not a National Treasure ....Go enjoy it.

 

 

(My apologies to Richard Boone (Paladin) for the following)        Rick

 

Alan,  Alan where do you plow?

Alan,  Alan turn some dirt now.

 

Have plow will travel reads the card of a man.

A Sunday Farmer in a fertile land.

His single plow for hire turns the farmers land.

A Sunday Farmer is a man called Alan.

 

Alan , Alan where do you plow?

Alan,  Alan turn some dirt now.

 

He travels on to  wherever he must,

A straw hat and bibs is his badge of trust.

There are plowday legends that the farmers spin,

Of a man with the plow,  Of a man called Alan.

 

Alan,  Alan where do you plow?

Alan, Alan turn some dirt now.

Turn some dirt now.

Turn some dirt now.
