I have bought an Oliver 8 bottom on land plow off a couple
friends and I do not know anything about it. I bought it
because I wanted an on land plow and also you can drop
from 8 all the way down to 5 bottoms. I was wondering if
anyone could tell me a model number or years it might have
been produced? Also feel free to add any information about
it.

A thought occurred, that plow would be a fun one to take to a plow days gathering. With a log chain let guys take turns pairing up a couple tractors on it at a time and have fun!

That is a model 450 pull type plow built in the mid to late 1960's.

It looks like you are going to have a lot of work cleaning and freeing up everything, but when your done and have everything adjusted, you will have a good plow.

You should still be able to get an operators manual from the Floyd County Museum.

A guy out east of town had two of those that he pulled with Case 1470s. Just be careful turning too short with that front furrow wheel. I don't think there's a stop on it to keep it from coming right around over center. I've seen them trying to straighten them out more than once.

   Here is a scan of one of the pieces of literature for the 450 plow.  This piece is dated 2-65.  Looks like it is behind a 1950 probably a MFWD.  These plows were sold to customers that had tractors without three point hitches, we called them "self-propelled drawbars".  The 500 series semi-mount plows pulled much esier simply because they were closer to the tractor and out sold the pull-types by hundreds of times.



   The onland plows were a problem if the size and power source didn't match.  The line of draft is a straight line from 1/2 the width of cut + 1/4 of one bottom towards the unplowed land.  This line needs to be as paralled to the previous furrow as possible. In the plow in the literature, this would be #5 bottom, 3/4 of the way from the unplowed land.  In your photo it looks like the hitch is in the correct place.  Now when you reduce the number of bottoms the tractor gets closer to the furrow and if it has dual wheels the outter dual is too close to the furrow or fallin into it.  Most guys would adjust the hitch to the left to get the wheels away from the furrow and now you are pulling the plow sideways making all kinds of problems.  Had guys trying to pull a 5 or 6 bottom with dual wheels and the hitch way out of the line of draft and have been screamed at!

  Looks like you have found a good plow with disc jointers.  Good luck with your find.
