  • The Dearborn/Ford 10-156 Economy Plow is a 14" 2 bottom and a good choice as you can still get most wear parts for it: points(shares); moldboards; landsides; and frogs are available. Coulters and rolling landsides (tailwheel) are not. This even has the original coulters too -no jointers, but you don't need either of those to plow with. The asking price is okay, but I'd offer $200 cash in hand and they'd probably counter offer at $250 which then I'd take it. You will use the fact that wear parts, points mostly, are worn and will need replacing as a selling point in your favor.

  • Thanks for the info. I'd like to have it. I'm sure the 3000 would pull it ok. I just bought a rototiller to do the garden though. Have a disk and sure would like a plow. Wife would say why do you need a plow for the garden when you just bought a tiler LOL.

  • Hope you get it Larry. Plowing, then discing was the way it was done and still works fine. The N-Series Tractor was designed to pull a 2-bottom plow; 10, 12, or 14 inch, or a single 16" one-bottom plow. Your 3000 could pull a 3-bottom easy. You can't use a tiller on an N -not geared low enough. You'd need a Howard Rotovator, or some other step down transmission. Food for thought and good enough reason for the wife...

  • Answer; because the turn plough will loosen the soil up deeper so you get good root penetration and soil drainage. Over time, the soil compacts and the tiller just can't do the job of loosing the soil as deep as the turn plough.
