I realize that they're not GT stuff, but was hoping someone could shed some
light on what I have here.
I might think about selling them, as they are to big for my MFs.
What might they be worth.
The plow is Mod# 10-8 Ser# 29265.
Nothing on the discs.

Any help appreciated
Thanks

I don't know much about the plow, but judging by the wooden hitch beam on the discs, I'd say they're fairly old. May even be som hand forging in the framework at the back. They also look like someone may have made some modifications or repairs at some point.

The discs have a frame bolted on top to carry extra weight. That's coming off as soon as it gets near the torch.

i could see a larger gt pulling disks, like a bolens ht, a simplicity power max, a wheel horse d series, cub cadet super GT ect. the plows, maybe a diesel gt in a low gear.

Ok, I forgot. A tractor for each implement, is the rule.
So, I should keep them, and get the right machine for them?

I'm going to guess on the plow as being early 50's, possibly late 40's. What is the cutting width of each plow? I have seen 2-bottom Dearborn plows that were 12".

I'll measure cut width tomorrow, but I'm guessing 10", and the model # is 10-8. If that means anything.

Means nothing ........from what I've read they are 12" plows. Made 1947 thru 50.

The Dearborn Plows were built for the Ferguson System units, Specifically the Ford 8-9-2 N tractors. They are nice plows and turn well, downside is none that I know of had trips for hitting rocks. If you were going fast & hit a rock... the plow would "Tweak"

Oh, hang on, I found a flashlight.
So, I measure at right angle from the plow tip, to the outer most edge?

Yep, to outer most tip of cutting edge on the bottom.
