Can anyone identify this plow better than just a ford plow? Same guy has a dearborne disc plow like I have been wanting and I am going to go look at both of them this weekend.

I don't think that is a Ford plow. The cross shaft is the Ferguson crank style which Ford couldnt use after 1947. The plow in the picture also has replaceable shins. I could be wrong but it looks like a Massey #62 that someone has painted ford blue. I also noticed in the pictures that it looks like the moldboards are getting worn.See the place right above the share? I would check it real good because if you have to buy moldboards for it, you could end up with more in it than what it is worth.

I looked up the old plow, it sure looks like a #62 Ferguson plow to me.

what's it worth, may not be $300, but small double plows are the most expensive plows you can buy for what you get.
It looks to be built just like my #62 MF plow, they are good plows and you can still get parts for it.

if the points are good, it should go in the ground and plow your garden spots or truck patches.

coulters are missing and if you want coulters they will cost you big time.

might look around some more at other plows, but this a bad time of the year to be buying small farming tool, but a good time to be selling farm farming tools.

Note the frame work on my old MF #62 plow, it is a 3-12" plow, but has the same frame and crooked cross bar as the one you are looking at.

I sure would not want to take $300 for my plow.

buy the old plow, if it works good, clean and paint it up red, you will have a good plow that will do what you want.

tilt it over and feel along the front edge of the cutter points, if they are rounded off then the old plow will not go in the ground so good,

before you look at the plow, go to a tsc or somewhere that sells new plows and look/feel of the front cutter edge of their plows. this will give you a good feel of what you are to look for, also they may have new plow points in the store, you could look at one of them, feel the cutter edge.

also note the price of new points, if the old plow must have new points before it will plow properly, this only adds to the overall cost.

good luck,

just to be clear, I have attached a picture of a Ford Dearborn disc plow.
you said the guy had one, per my records this is what it should look like. Note the heavy cast weight that it has on the front of the plow between lower lift pins.

Ford Dearborn 10-80, 10-202

Thanks for all the information guys this is what I need to be informed in buying this stuff. The plow interests me even more now that yall are calling it a MF plow because ill be pulling it with a MF/Ferguson 35. No coulters is pretty common in this area for some reason and I can't recall ever seeing one for sale with coulters of any size. My main purpose of this is as you guessed working foodplots and a small market garden.

The thing that really has my attention is the disc plow because this is what I have been looking for. What exactly should I check on the disc plow and what issues will be a deal breaker? How can I tell rear wheel is in good enough shape to guide the plow properly and what size should the discs be for it to be useable? Are parts available for old dearborne disc plows?

Another question I just thought of I see where you are talking about the moldboard looks worn but how does that happen seems like you would have to let the share get waaaay far gone for that to happen and by that point wouldn't it be plowing like crap?

If I was guessing I would say it has been run with worn out
shares and the moldboard suffered because of it. As far as
disc plows, I love my Ferguson disc plow and if you can find
one I would recommend it. Just going by what I"ve heard the
Dearborn disc plow isn"t as good of a plow as the Ferguson or
the Massey versions, there are a couple of companies making
brand new disc plows right now and they are exact clones of
the Massey versions, so that has to say something about their
design.I would check the bearings on the discs to see if the
bearings are loose if they are it has probably been run that
way. If the spring on the tail wheel is missing you won"t be able
to keep it in the furrow as well as if the disc in the middle of the
tail wheel is worn you won"t be able to keep it in the furrow. If
the scrapers are missing it won"t be much count either. Instead
of a disc plow, have you given any thought to a Ferguson or
Dearborn 9 shank spring tine tiller? I have 2 and honestly I
probably use them more than any other plow I have. I usually
plow and disc in the fall but in the spring it"s the 9 shank tiller
from then on. Just throwing another idea out there for you and
those plows are easy to find. Ferguson called it a tiller and
Ford called it a field cultivator, but it is the same plow.

Jason, I too like my old ferguson mf64 disc plow, it does a great job.

always wanted one of those ferguson 9 shank tillers, but never found one around my area of west KY.

I did find an old AC field cultivator and cut the AC snap couple hitch off, welded on a 3 pt hitch. It works good, heavy for a little TO-35.
