Indentical.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Jackman,
Keep in mind that the lowboy is 9" lower than a standard Cub so when you drop the wheels in the furrow you may be dragging a lot of your Cub through the soil. You probably won't be able to go full depth on the plow.

That's okay I'm in this for the fun just want to get a feel for dragging a plow thru the dirt :lol:


I did find a plow and bought it, it's a 194 with a Colter in fair condition the point I suspect is broken a 1/2 inch is missing, the colter is in good shape but the special square hand nut it rusted badly I hope to save it.

I had one of these 194 plows years ago this one that I just got is the same except instead of a long flat landside piece it has a a short landside with a bolt on piece in the manual its part # a58715a, you can see it in the top left corner pic, anyone know what that item is all about? Image

Jackman,
If you have a replaceable point, it is available through a Case/IH dealer....but pricey. AgriSupply has a Chinese point that is cheap but functional.

Jim Becker would know the function of the adjustable landslide.

I think that number is a drawing number, not a part number. That is a landside heel and I always thought they were there as a wear point. Easier to bolt on a new heel than a whole new landside. Don't know about them being adjustable, never really played with one.

A58715A is the drawing. The heel is a wear point. It isn't clear to me what an adjustable heel does for you. If may help control cutting depth. I have a plow with an adjustable heel but haven't used it much. The adjustable heels have a much larger footprint than the standard heels on the bottom of the furrow.
