I called today about a Brinly plow in Louisville. Couldn't tell by the pics of the size, so called & told they guy how to measure it. He even got his buddy on the phone (both lifer city boys) and they said they understood & both measured it as a 12" plow. Brinly makes a 12" sleeve type, so off I went. I got there & it's a normal 10" plow! :wallbanging::wallbanging::wallbanging::wallbanging: I already have two 10" Brinly's! Oh well, this plow still had 90% of the paint on the moldboard & 100% on the coulter. He was asking $100 firm, but because I drove 55 miles to get there, he said he'd take $80 for it. So it's in the back of the Jeep as we speak. I will keep this one & sell one of my other 2. $80 for a nearly new plow is NOT bad at all! But I was really cranked for bringing home a 12" Brinly!
I'll get a couple pics tomorrow. Been a long day chopping silage, then a 110 mile rd trip.

Hey Daniel, I had a similar experience, only I drove about 3 hours round trip. The guy felt bad and the price went from $100 to $80, and then down again to about $70 so I would take it lol. Then I gave up the search altogether for a 12 inch plow.

That's kind of like the JD I bought, said it was a front engine, got there and it was a rear engine 68. I haven't grasped that yet.

Especially since the one he is using is a front engine rider and he's was pushing this one out of the way to mow.

I've been examining pics of the 12" 3 point Brinly plows, * as far as the moldboard & plowpoint, they are just longer. So I am not looking for a 12" plow any longer. I am going to extend the moldboard & point on one of my plows I already have. I know it can be done, so this winter or before I am going to do this. I have the 10" plow, the equipment to do it. All I need to do is pick up a piece of the same thickness steel at my local steel yard. I may even take mine to a 13" plow.

Sounds good, Daniel. Shoot, stretch it on out to 14", you can always cut it back if it's too big. Be sure to post the pics of this. You can always make a decal calling it the '10" stretch version'.

Daniel, I'd like to extend one of my three 10 inchers to an 11 incher, instead of a full 12, since I am pulling it with the Caterpillar Gt18 (Craftsman). I just want it a hair wider since I will be running a 10.50 wide tire. So keep us posted.

It will likely be after October 1st before I could start it. All my free time till then will be readying for my local show.

Speaking as an experianced blacksmith, that aint just any old piece of steel in the share or mouldboard. You'd be better off to get another junk plow for the parts you need or start the share by using a throw away one that you could find at a farm store.
