    Default disc plow information please- pics included

    Can someone help me identify this plow? I have used it on my Masey Ferguson 135 with limited success. The plow seems a little heavy for this tractor. I would like to use it for some small acreage planting, and fire breaks. The only identifying number is "G 882-A" and a small JD in a circle. "John Deer" maybe?

    On the part of the plow with the part number is a piece of channel that acts as a stand. Was this where a "gauge wheel" was originally placed? Would a gauge wheel help with the plow operation?

    Is the angle of the discs adjustable? It seems like the discs take too big of a "bite" out of the soil, and cause the tractor to move to the side.

    Is it possible to convert this plow to a "pull type" implement? I have a bulldozer with a drawbar that would be ideal for pulling this implement. However, I can see how building a frame with wheels to pull this disc would be a large investment in time and effort.

    Any advice will be appreciated.-plow-front-jpg-plow-right-side-jpg-plow-left-side-jpg-plow-part-no-jpg

    Pretty sure it is a JD. I would be interested in buying it if you are not too far away? Ken Sweet

    Thanks Ken, I want to keep it right now. I am in central TX, so freight would be high I think.

    I would agree that it's a deere.

    Three bottom turning plow.

    It would work just fine behind a bigger tractor. I really don't know of anything you could do to make it work behind your 135.
    And, as you suspected, I'm afraid that it would be practically impossible to make it work as a pull-type behind your dozer.

    This 3 blade disk plow is a model 475. It was made as a 2 or 3 disk model and the three disk could be reduced to a 2 disk. Blades are adjustable. I would be glad to talk more with you about this. 585 967 2038

    Just out of curiosity I would like to know the advantages/disadvantages of a disk plow vs. a conventional turning plow. I like to go to farm equipment auctions. If I ever run into one I'd like to know if it might make sense to pick it up. I need some more old iron sitting around to admire.

    The disc plow is great for "New Ground" where you will have roots and small brush type undergrowth. They are the very good in rocky type soil as they just roll up and over a rock and you don't have to worry about the disc plow hanging or tripping. Better than a conventional plow when you have heavy and tall top growth. They don't clog up. Ken Sweet

    Ken, will they get very deep? It seems to me that they would just roll over e lot of things including rocks.

    A good one will go as deep as a moldboard plow. Weight and a big heavy furrow wheel is the key. They don't roll out as many rocks as a moldboard plow because they roll over some of them and leave them underground where they were. Ken Sweet
