IH trip Plow

Postby 2cubs » Sat Apr 14, 2018 8:25 pm

I bought a John Deere A last Oct. that included this plow. I've since been told its a Little Wonder No.4 plow with 14" bottoms. Someone has cobbed on some old split rim truck wheels which I hope to find some original style to replace them with. Thought this plow would be a good match for our Farmall H.

I think you will find that the A will be a much better plow tractor than the H.--the H should pull it but it was my findings that in this area the A was way more powerful .--My buddy pulls a 3-14 with his A and moves right down the field. thanks; sonny
PS you have a LOT of work cleaning the moldboards on that plow before you can use it !! LOL!!!!

You may be right. We use to pull a single 16" trip plow with the H years ago with a tired engine and it did fine. Might be to much to ask to go up to a double 14".

Try it and see, no harm done!--Get the moldboards nice and shiney, and the ole H might surprise you.---We used to live next door to a guy that plowed with an H and 2-14's.---Really depends upon your soil conditions! thanks; sonny

We have clay soil which makes for a tough sod. It might have trouble breaking new ground, but rolling a previous years crop under it shouldn't have a problem.
