Ok experts. This is a 3x14” plow. I could see where the “McCormick” decal had been but not the model number. Any ideas?

it's a 60.  If you are looking to buy it IMO they are worth their weight in gold.  I've used one and am always amazed at how great of a job it does- plows under trash like it's nobody's buisness.

At least we can all agree on something. Thanks gentlemen!  Any more opinions on them besides the one above?

I would say that it would look great behind a 450 Wheatie plowing your food plots ....

I’d say it would also if I had a 450 wheatie. LOL  

I didn’t get a pic but there is a 4btm sitting there also that I think is the same model. I think the 350 I have would pull this one nicely.  Great Grandpa pulled a 3x12” No8 with the 350. That plow is still in the shed.

I think they are a good plow with wear parts easier to get than the older ones. 

 as afar as clearance for trash they are considerably better than Little Genius but they aren't made for the corn yields we get these days. they will plug and you will curse LOL

check your trips if you are plowing where there are rocks. I bought a 60 out of a collection and put it behind my tired Int 806 for plow day a couple years ago. Had new shares and shins on it. My brother hit a rock. Trip was frozen. Like was said, parts are easy to come by.

Mishap was in a different field than this one.

No rocks is about the only thing this soil has going for it. ?

Ok, so I’ve come across this one also.  Appears to be a 4x14” of the same model best I can tell?  Needs new wear parts despite the paint.

Hitch design is a dead giveaway on the 70.....

 

Forgive my ignorance, what portion is the giveaway?

Axles over the frame are what give it away as a 70 for me.

Big arc with clamp on plate for setting line of draft was std on 70.  60 had triangular 3 bar adjustment hitch.

In addition to the excellent info already given, it should be noted the model 70 has rigid shanks where the model 60 has trip back ones.

 what tobacco said

for those who haven't been around plows much

 the hitch trips on the 70 the same as the older plows. spring pressure

Sledge, are those plows at the auction tomorrow? 

No, I won't be there, just curious.  Dr appointment prevents attending auction. 

 

Yes, probably shouldn’t have asked....liable to have bought myself some competition. ?
