A while ago a family member told me that I could have an old plow that was sitting in the weeds on their farm. Today I finnaly got a chance to go and get it. I am pretty sure that it is a little genius 2-14 plow.
This plow has been sitting in the same spot for the last 20 years at least and it was most likely longer. It was sunk into the ground up to the bottom of the plows. Well today that all changed lol.
When we got ready to pull it out I thought that the plow was going to be too rusted to move and fight us the whole way. Believe it or not though it just rolled right out of the ground with a slight pull from my truck. All the wheels move like it was just used yesterday #2thumbs . The hardest part was getting it loaded on the trailer.
After I got it home and unloaded, I got right to work at freeing up the depth levers and some other small stuff. I actually got it all to move and the trip mechanism to raise and lower the plow. I also decided to drain the gearbox and when I removed the drain plug I got a ton on clean water out of it. It is amazing that the casting never craked from freezin gin the many winters it sat out. I also got a bunch of nasty oily sludge that drained out in nasty black globbs
. I would of put some more oil back in but hte fill plug is stuck and won't bugde. So toorrow I will figure out how to put some more oil in and try plowing with it.
I got really luckly with this being free and then not having not much work to do to get it ready to try plowing with lol.
Here are some pictures of it.
