well im working on it, but cant get the guy to contact me. I was hoping to get the orginal poster to see this and tell us more on how he got the plow, as it looks like they were made out west and would fall under the regional tractor type. Those types dont ussally get far from home. Google Mighty man and you'll find a bunch ot factory pictures on what was something ahead of it time in tractors. Looks like they were in from 47 to 55, and ill bet if they would have had a better sales network could have defeated the DB traxctors Sears was selling at the time. It was hard to bet a catalog and low down payment plan that was in about everyone home back then.

So if your the orginal poster of this plow, i think we have your answer, just wished i could have found the orginal person.

I was the one who wanted to know about the plow. From what I could see in the Craiglist pics, it has to be the same as mine.

Thanks for the information

Dude im so glad you found this posting. I looked and looked for the orginal and couldnt find it.

Happy to help you out with this small thing. Now tell us how you came to find the plow and not the tractor. There must be another one out there that has lost its attachments.

I purchased the plow from an estate sale, for a friend of mines father. They had other assorted equipment but nothing I was looking for. I wanted to try to adapt this plow to a sleeve hitch to use with my 8 HP Deere 110.

I think they had purchased the tractor a long time ago, but it was not complete. The plow seemed to be the only thing his Dad saved. They are still cleaning up around the place, if anything else for a Mighty Man shows up I will let you know.

You probably already found some pictures. I thought it was cool that you could add a front end to make it a ride on tractor.

Yes , you know how i am, i started to collect info as soon as i found it. Washington state seems to have a ton of stuff from this company. I see there was a high clearance walker, and a sulky that you could mount tooling on. Another pic shows a snow blower, using a jack shaft running though the frame front side to side. I need to find a closer picture like the one you posted of the vator unit. It looks to be the same as my Blackhawk and DB jr tractors used. I beleive we might have decided that Ohio Cultivator made them.

I hope your able to use the plow with out having to alter it on your 3pt. If you run into a problem, i may have another plow to trade you, that could be cut up to fit and not ruin one that may be harder to find.
