Re: Old Plough
My guess is its a Ferguson plough. Production of these
ploughs I reckon started in the 1940's and continued for a
number of years. I own a 3 furrow plough which looks the
same design as your plough and I have been told it is a
Ferguson plough.

Anyone agree or diagree.

Re: Old Plough
Looks like a Ferguson AO series with the 12" scotch bottoms.
It's missing the coulters and jointers, tailwheel? The
shares for these must be like hens teeth! My 12B-AO-28 plow
has the "B" bottoms for sod and clay, and those shares
required some careful research to find. fortunately they
are the same as those used on the early Ford Dearborn plows.
I don't know if the scotch bottoms were ever used on the
Dearborn plows. My 1955 Ferguson operator's manual doesn't
even mention them, only my older parts book.

Re: Old Plough
I have a Ford Dearborn that is the same three point hookup
but my plows are different. I will get a picture of mine and
post it. That is if the sun ever comes out again.

Re: Old Plough
I don't know if it is the same plow or not. I think most of
the plows of that time period may look much the same. I do
know that this one was made by the Dearborn equipment co. My
colters are missing also would buy some if I could find
them. I get the share and plow from my Ford dealer. This
plow also has a tail wheel that can't be seen in the photo.
This wheel runs next to the uncut dirt to help hold it
stright when plowing.
