Picked up a 10" sears 3pt moldboard plow. They are so rare around me I had to have it shipped from a friend out on the east coast.


Have not had a chance to see it yet, hopefully sometime next week I will get a chance to see it and maybe even play with it.


Now I just need to find a new style top link for my 3pt, I have an old style but would rather have the new style for when I get around to restoring the tractor.

That's great news... seems odd that they werent a big seller out there. Especially near suburbia.

Anyways, Congrats! You will really enjoy it once set up right. They work very well.

I will have alot of pull behind stuff lol. Cause I can easily build the stuff. Thats the reason for me wanting to be an engineer so I can build all the parts I need for my equipment.

IMO they do a better job than a Brinly. Also I believe are made of better steel and probably wear longer. When shined up from much plowing the steel reflects like a mirror ... just like your farm tractor plow. Brinly is rather dull in comparison.

Austin, I don't think engineer has much to do with machining parts as a machinist does. I think a better trade, or learning experience would be to hang out with an old farmer (like my grandfather). Going to buy parts is a never occurring thing around here. Everything is either made, or fixed using original parts. I guess the best way to explain it to you is for you to just see how we run things.


I think brinly made the plows for sears, but I'm not 100% on that.


Thanks guys!

The model number on my plow is 917.253020
The prefix number tells you the manufacturer. In the case of 917, it is Roper (now AYP)

I was told that some of the early ones had a different prefix and were David Bradley. No proof, just hearsay.

When Sears did away with the Suburban they did away with the 3ph and replaced with a sleeve type hitch ... the sleeve plow they offered was a Brinly bottom on a beam custom made by Brinly for Sears (I believe). One of these plows has been showing up at Pa. plowday the past few years... and is the only one I know of.

Brinly plows .... along with some other implements they sell ... are manufactured by Ohio Steel Fabricators located in Columbus Ohio. Sometimes you will see painted red plows identical to Brinly with a Ohio Steel Fabricators decal on the beam.

http://www.stevencha...76/5_Plow.shtml

Also .... Brinly still sells new 10 inch plows and all parts are available. If you go to the Sears site all of the 3ph parts are obsolete ... the point and moldboard are no longer available

Well, here it is!

Now I just need to find a place to shine it up! I'm at home right now for a quick 3-day break. I also found out my battery went dead on my SS12, I'm surprised it made it as long as it did.
