Ihc plows

7 posts in this topic

Hi all, just joined the board. I need some help identifying a couple of ihc plows i have. both are five bottom rope trip plows. both have two cranks for depth adjustment rather than levers. one is on rubber and one is on full steel. they have significantly different frame designs. the full steel plow was repainted (not by me) in little genius colors etc. now for the questions where can i find a serial/model number on these plows. can someone tell me the approximate years they would have been built? What tractors were designed to pull them and built by international? I have been pulling the rubber tired one behind my old cats but was wondering what wheel tractors could handle them. Also, how rare are these plows? Thanks all for your time,

Welcome to the Red Power Forum. It would be a whole lot easier to identify these plows if you could take som pictures and post them. If you do not have a digital camera you can still post pictures, either by cscanning them {if you have a scanner} of by using a Kodack throw away and get the digital disk. then follow the dirrections to down load the pictures.

As far as the plow go, if the on steel looks like a #8 Little Genius except it has the cranks and the axles go over the top of the frame it is a #10 Little Genius. Now would you describe the other one in more detail so we can figure out what it is.

I will post some pictures of a #10 and a #16 later , when I have more time.

I would guess that the one on rubber is a #16 since you said that they were significantly different in design. The plow on steel was probably designed to be pulled by a crawler or a W-40 in decent going. I think the #16 wasn't built until 1953 so SWD-9 would be the wheel tractor for it.I'm not aware of #70 plows(square tube frame) with ground lift,but it may be possible.HTH

As was stated earlier a crawler, a W40 or WK40, W9, WD9, could have pulled this plow. Later on a 600, 650 or a 660.

These are pictures of a #16. It has a wishbone drawbar. I have never seen one with mecanical lift, but I suppose its possible.

Is this the same plow we used to call a " High Clearance model "?

Bud,

Yes I immagine they were called that. The axle over the top of the frame dose give more clerance the when the axle goes under.
