  • Hi Scott,
    I have been searching for plow shares for my dearborn 2-12 plow model 10-153, share # 101248....i believe. I was told you might know where to get OEM shares...but i would be happy with good used ones.
    I would appreciate any help you could give me!

    Thanks, Keith

  • A number of years ago, Marv Baumann and I sought to borrow that prototype for our show in Monroe County. The museum would crate it, load it on my trailer, let us display it and return it to them on Sunday. To insure it for a 3 day show was prohibitive, $2000. It is one of a kind. My understanding is it is no longer available to loan.

  • Hi Jonas-
    Very nice pics - the last time I was there that is all they had along with a McCormack Harvester and an IH tomato picker. Not much of an AG display but beats nothing at all. You'd think they'd have at least an 8N and maybe a Jube. The grounds crew does use 8Ns and Jubes for maintenance around the Village...

  • Thanks for the pix. Interesting 9n prototype, I've never seen a picture of it before. That rear axle is something else.
