New Project - 1/2 Scale IH 60 conser-till plow

Recommended Posts

New 1/2 scale implement project in the works.  A Cub cadet sized version of an IH 60 Conser Till.  Red Bibs Bill has a perfectly restored example in the attached video.

Planning on 45-48" width with 5 shanks (11-12" spacing) and 7 coulters (6" spacing).  Have operators/set-up manual on the way.  Ordered parts last week, 5ea. 3/8" thick 16" cultivator shanks with points, 7ea. 13" diameter coulters, and 10ea. cultivator springs to duplicate the spring cushion shanks.  Picking up wheels and rims this PM (16x4.00x8).  Once they are all here I'll start drawing/laying it out.  Hope to have it done for the summer shows.

Will make a nice companion to the 1/2 scale 520 semi-mount plow and 370 5' disk!

I saw your disk and talked to you at RPRU in Iowa.  If it turns out like your disk it will be an awesome toy/tool.

Patience is a virtue......

I ordered tires and need to do some calcs on the lift geometry before I can order the cylinder.

Work has been busy and I have some travel coming up, so it will be a little while before the welder comes out.....but we'll get there!

I have found it goes much easier on these projects if you get the details planned out first.....saves lots of rework!

Nice. I scored a set of 26-12-12 Goodyears. Those might go well with them.

More progress.  It's just about right.  Second drawing set is for lift and turn clearance. Yellow are tillage parts, red frame,  blue lift linkages. Over all width 48", with 5 shanks on 10.5" spacings.
