I keep finding these weird plows... last year, I found that Springfield and this year I found what looks like a very specific plow made by Brinly for someone. It does say "Brinly 10" on the moldboard but it measures 9.25". Best I can tell, the original color was orange on the main beam. that top bar is not painted, except hints of Orange - very faded and where the weather wouldn't hit.

This thing is goofy long, compared to my Brinly Sleeve Hitch. This is 44 3/4 inches nose to tail, (hitch to landside end).

That is strange, looks like you just pull it like a trailer. I guess it will pull straight when it cuts into the ground. Let us know how it works.

It looks like Panzer blue ???

.... It looks like a modified Brinly straight beam... but the crude design makes me wonder if it is Speedex .... or at least was modified by a Speedex engineer for Panzer.

.... Because .... Panzer did not hire engineers .... they hired cobblers to design their tractors.

.... I say it is a Panzer Plow ..... and would be a nightmare to use !!! :rolleyes:

It does seem like it is a pull behind plow but you would never be able to get it out of the ground unless you unhooked it from the tractor. I am curious to find out what it is for also.

That's an interesting one, Alan. I'm guessing the hitch fit into a slot, something like Wheel Horse has, and the lifting was done something like what Simplicity/AC uses for raising rear implements???? Like I said... just a guess.

That may be for a Wheelhorse, Alan. I have seen others like it on google and that's what the owners are saying, goes in the slot hitch, just try it. None have the forward pipe think but still.

We both thought the same thing Casey, but the part that goes into the slot hitch is much too narrow for Wheel Horse. They did make a similar one for Wheel Horse, but it was shorter and was an 8" model. I'm still thinking walk behind something-or-other for this one.

It's hard to say for sure Steve, but it would probably fit the slot hitch anyway. Either way it looks good enough lol.

It appears to be a Wheel Horse PP-10 series, 10" plow with coulter. Could be either a PP-10HD, 101, 107, or 1064.

Not sure what the extra parts are for though. The bar and rod are not original to it. Made sometime between 1960-968 depending on exactly which model it is. Get a few pics from the other side, and a few close-ups of the extra parts. Also a measurement of the plow disk diameter would help as well. Then I can figure out which model it is exactly.

I was going to get the extra parts out, but just then it started raining.

The coulter is close to 10", so I will assume that's what it started out as.

Looks to me to be a 1961 PP-101. The funny shaped plow balde support is the give-away. The "101" was the only unit with a support shaped like that.

The Coulter blade appears to be a replacement, but other than that it's in pretty good shape for its age.

I'd sand blast the whole thing and repaint everything red except the Plow Blade and the Coulter disk. Paint the Plow and Coulter disk black with the Coulter Disk center hub painted linen (beige).

Nice unit, and definitely worth keeping. Here is the manual for it: http://www.mywheelho...lows/PP-101.pdf

Mike, thank you very much! This is very helpful information.

2 questions
1: what tractors was this built for? My daughter has a 68 Commando 8 with a slot hitch.

2: roughly what year? ( is the 96 in your post a model designation or ?)

Thanks again! -Alan

 

EDIT: 2 yrs later another turned up very similar in THIS thread.

As to question #1, there were several models designated in the interchange list.

As to question #2, It looks to be from 1961 to 1965, 5 to 10 Horsepower range.

I uploaded the interchange list to the manuals section!

I have a sticky "1" key on my laptop keyboard. The post has since been edited, but it should have read "1961". All of Case's info is correct. In fact, the PP-101 can be used on any WH with a slot hitch up to the final 2005 model year.

It looks like you hook it up to the old sleeve hitches they made for Craftsman
