I just bought this Ford Model 101 3 bottom plow. It was near my house, so I jumped on it. I have a couple of questions. I read somewhere on TBN how to measure to know if you have a 16 inch or other size. The plows are about 16 inches apart and the share is 38 inches long. How do I tell? Also, the rear disc,..... is it called a coulter, or a wheel, or disc?

Measure horizontally from the inside of 1 beam to the outside of the next beam. This will give you plow size.

Rear wheel is a ROLLING LANDSIDE.


Nice plow.

Male or female?


hugs, JBS

Jeff,
Beam centerline to beam centerline is 14 inches.

Rolling Landside. Got it!

Thanks.

Is what male or female? Since the plow will not sweat anything......................she must be female.:rolleyes: I don't care as long as it isn't new orange.:laughing::laughing::laughing:

hugs, Brandi

There are 3 pieces or parts in the picture with the tape measure. The largest part is the mouldboard, the part directly in front of it is called a shin,
and the 3rd piece on the very bottom is the plow shear. Measure the length of the shear and this will tell you the plow size. The disc blades in front
of each bottom is called a coulter blade.

Your plow is bigger but I was thinking of getting the plows together and breeding them.

Ford Series 101 plows are in short supply and increasing demand.

Zdog,
Thanks. Now I am really confused:rolleyes:............................all three shears are 18 inches.:confused3: So is it a 14 inch or a 18 inch?:confused: I think it is a 14 inch, because the beams are the same width as the shears, so shear to shear cuts would be 14 inches wide.;)

Nahhh...............your plow has been connected to orange too long.:laughing: You can't go around and expecting different colors to breed.:thumbdown: I find no shortage in shopping for 101s...............you just gotta look in different time zones.:shocked:

Goggle 101 3 bottoms and your find a ton of them:thumbsup:. This is the second one in a month, I found............within 2 hours of me.
hugs, Brandi

All of our plows were 6 bottom rollover plows and were called 16 inch because that was the length of the plowshare. Google Artsway 166 plow and you will see that they are sold as 14 or 16 inch. Yes, you could have 18 inch shears on a much smaller plow.

Zdog,
I'll buy that. What is the advantage of a rollover plow .vs just plowing around and around and around the field?
Does anyone know the weight..........even a ballpark guess of this plow?
