DEARBORN PLOWS - INDEX OF MODELS
Here is some information from the Dearborn Master Book, February 1955, Plows. Pictured are the early Moldboard (Prior Model) 47-50; the Economy Plow -single and double bottom; the 10-14 Two-Way Plow; and the FMD Plow. Many times the early 10-1 Plow is confused with the FORD SERIES 101 Plow, but that series is listed separate as it came on board later. The Economy Plow was introduced in 1950 with major engineering changes. Almost the entire plow was revamped for beter performance. Note the "A"-frame upright was now solid; the cross-shaft was changed as the early plow cross-shaft was a straight round bar that was tweaked by the adjusting cam on the one side, however constant torque caused it to turn on it's own; the coulters were redesigned -note the forks and the new collar held it place so you really didn't need check chains if set right; the moldboards and shares were new too as the "throw-away" razor share concept was introduced. This INDEX lists Model Numbers along with size, years produced, and the main parts that came with it. For instance, a 10-156 plow is a 14" two-bottom however there was a third beam conversion kit available to add a third bottom to it. The Plow retains the 10-156 Model number but now it is a 3-bottom unit. The Master Parts Book is a fairly large manual so I will add the other pages as time allows. Meanwhile, identify your model...
