Don't know about the thrust on the spring, but I guarantee , it takes a lot to trip it. :lol:

Just a little tighter than what it takes to yank you off the seat when it trips and you got ahold of one of the depth control levers LOL .

Phil, Here's the link, I already clicked on plows: http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/library ... &B1=Submit If you click on "Manuals", it's at the bottom right of the first manual section under "Paint, decals, etc."

The last one I saw sell went for around $600 for a 2 bottom and the 3 bottom went for $750. That has been a few years ago. Price seems high to me, especially when I saw 5 of them sell for less than 200 each last summer. They were not restored though. a usable one brought 175 and a parts plow still brought 75 to 125.

Others may have more to say.

Would a Cub pull one or do you need an A.

A cub or an A will pull one, so long as you do not let it down. to actually plow with one you need an H or M.
