Old disk plow

Recommended Posts

Bought this down in Torrington WY 22 years ago, decided to drag it out of the weeds maybe level it and put some rock under it. Anyone no what kind it is?

A check of embossed numbers on the parts is the best starting place.  That is how I identified some horse drawn era implements that turned out to be from three different manufacturers, McCormick, John Deere-Hoover, and Oliver.

😉 Paint it to what ever color your tractor is. Take to a show 😵 all the experts will come tell you it is a different color than you painted it.🤣

 

Was being tongue in cheek, of course but if nobody here knows? Some of the smaller companies used different paint colors at different times.  So manufacturer may not mean much.

Rifle through the IH catalogs on the Wisconsin Historical Society website. Look for distinctive features, like those interestingly spoked wheels. That may not tell exactly what model it is, but it'll telling you if it's an IHC.

IHC Bought Parlin & Orendorff and their plow parts will have the prefix, "PO" as on this plow beam.

This is the Parlin Orendorff disk plow that was pulled by five horses on my wife's grandfather's farm.  OBG 😉

That’s a leverite.  

Set it on some landscaping rock and leverite there.
