Well,  we can't afford no $50 grand kabota, so when the plow showed up fo $20, couldn't pass it up. Gonna use it to make some smooth trails and a food plot for hunting season.

Pictures of the plow:

The Avery Plow Company was founded in 1891, and went out of business in 1928.  The plows are highly valued ( ) but I don't know how much this is worth.  It is pretty rusty, but the rust didn't penetrate, so it seems fine.  Coat of Rustoleum and it'll be good as new!  Wink
Tidied up the sleeve hitch plate some: 

Been doing some thinking....

Man I have got to clean up the shop.
Oh, and here is the ripper I'm gonna be pulling with it:

IDK if it's made by Avery, but it and the sleeve hitch look like the same build as the plow that is labeled.  Which means it probably is. Very Happy

That doesn't really look like a plow bottom, it looks more like a tooth off a field culitivator. Could still work good though, but it won't actually turn over a forrow like a moldboard plow would. I like the old Roper hood on there! How well does it fit everything?

Well, that's okay, wasn't gonna use it for turning.  Thought about it for plowing a small ditch or something, maybe for drainage, or if we are burying some pipe, that'd probably work.  The hood fits everything great, it's probably gonna go on.  The hood doesn't work like a regular Craftsman, Husqvarna, JD, MTD, etc. hood, it has these little brackets that bolt on to the frame, then the other end bolts onto the grille and the top piece has a hitch pin sorta set up that pivots on the hood.  Need to bolt the brackets on, then it'll go on.  Need to paint the fenders after that, then it'll look just like the original.

Glad I can do that, was really bummed when I couldn't use the Roper for anything.
Then I need a brush guard...kinda putting that off.
Man, I better get back to work on Nellybelle before I get disqualified for no updates.

All you need is bigger tires and a 5" rear pulley, and on a Craftsman style setup, they haul and they are fun too.
