Default Brinley Mold Plow (price/usage)...

I am new to this type of attachments. But with the garden growing. I am in the process of locating a used mold plow. What kinda of used price do they typically go for. For example I've found a decent one that looks pretty new and taken care of. They want about 200 dollars for it, is that a decent price?

What exactly will this be useful for? Fall, spring use? I've got a lot of leaves that I would like to get put in the ground so they can decompose this winter, but dont know the best way of doing it, beside tilling. But tilling just doesn't seem to be getting the mixture right. What other attachments would I be looking at needing to get to get a garden cared for, besides a tiller?

200 is a little steep for a sleeve hitch modlboard plow. usually they can be had for 100-150.00, though you do have to look hard for them! if you need one now and can't find anything else, you may have to pay that price. though for that much i would just get a new one from tractor supply or somewhere. Deere sells them at the dealerships, but i imagine the price is a little steeper. what size is the one you are looking at? too big and your machine won't pull it properly. http://www.weekendfreedommachines.or...plowsetup.html has good explaination of size and setup information.

use the plow to turn over the soil. you can put your layer of leaves down first, then turn them in. mopst folks just let it lay for a few weeks then disc/till it. some let it lay all winter, then till it/turn it again in teh spring.

i generally plow mine under in teh fall and let it lay all winter. come spring i till the whole thing up 3-4 times to really get the soil loose and work in any fert/amendments. then i use my disc to toss it all back in the middle and form a row about 12" high by maybe 18" wide. i let this sit for a few days to a week to settle down, then plant. then i use my tine cultivator to weed between the rows. i space my rows 4-5' apart so i can drive between them instead of over them, but you can do it closer if your room is limited.

I paid 65 for this, and with about 30 bucks worth of paint, some new bolts and decals I have this.

That is exactly what I am looking for and am willing to spend the time and effort to restore to this condition. I will keep searching and hopefully find this piece to use in my garden next spring.

I have to agree that 200 is a little high for a used plow. A new Brinley can be purchased at HD for 250 to 300. I found one at an auction with out the coulter for 25.00 and a couple of months ago picked up another one in better shape with the coulter for 75.00.

If it is a 12 inch heavy duty one with no wear and it is local to you between 150 and 2 is not unreasonable at all. Sure it would be great to find a 50 dollar one with all the parts but unless you live in moldboard heaven or are lucky.....

It looks like the one that was painted in the pictures. Of course not nearly that fresh paint, but close. I got lookin' at some around at Home Depot and Sears, but the prices vary. My main thing would be the quality of the "new" ones, verses the a older one that are typically built better.

Is there anything that I should be lookin' for on this? I'll see if I can let cash talk with him.

Keep a couple of things in mind:

1. How quickly do you need it. If you have time to look around, there's a good deal out there somewhere. I paid $125.00 for a like-new one, then ran across a very good one two weeks later for free! I think I'll keep using the first one, and restore the latter for a "show plow".

2. In looking at the older ones, keep in mind the 10" was the most popular for a reason. The 8" tends to turn the furrow and sod up on edge, rather than flip it over. The 12" will take more horses to pull. The 10" turned out to be the best compromise, and I believe is the only size Brinly stil makes. Just some food for thought, CKruse

Well, I didn't measure it, but it had B-C 10 stamped into the blade. Oh well, I can email the buyer when he gets back from the holidays & checks in monday.
