Been posting mostly in the What did you do today thread one this but thought I'd put up the beginning condition and the almost end (still have the 3pt. hitch to attach) here for posterity:
That's further than I tore them down. Didn't want to chance busting one of those ones on the landslide, not sure if you can get parts for them anymore from Brinley.
Wow, that messed up the paint pretty bad, you got time to fix it yet though!!
That looks in really good shape! Hard to find the 3pt. Brinley's these days so glad you found one. One thing I picked up on this last week, tightening the cross chains so there isn't any swing when the plow is mounted. If you have any questions let me know.
That one looks great & ready to get to work, bring it to Columbus Ohio in two weeks, we'll help you set it up.I get to work on a plow also now. Picked it up today. So I should be ready by spring. Itll be my 1st try at a plow. Hopefully I can get it setup and worki spring will be normal next year.
Now you're a plower! Soil looks pretty rocky, might be hard to get it to go to depth in rocky soil. Try shortening your top link just a little to get it to point down a little more. You watched the video I presume, did you see all those guys that had made brackets to hang a few suitcase weights off the plow, getting them to bite can be pretty difficult in different soils.
