IH Plow?

Postby RanchsA » Fri Feb 13, 2015 9:29 am

Hi all. Wondering if anyone would be able to identify this plow? 300 a fair asking price. Going to look at it Sunday. Sorry for the darkness of photos.

It's going to take a close inspection of the plow to determine the manufacturer. Parts numbers for the major manufacturers are on line.

Asking price? Depends on what you want to do with the plow. Thinking if you want to use the plow, purchase one for the Cub for considerably less.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Thank you for reply. Just going off photo comparisons I thought it looked to be a little wonder or genius. I have a regular A i plan working a few garden plots with it. Also thinking the A may see some light pto use around the farm so was looking more for trailer types for convenience sake (also I don't have any of the lift parts currently for the A). Is the 300 a fair price of it is an IH? It is a fairly long drive and the seller is willing to meet me half way so don't want to low ball him to terribly.

You could do a Google search and check out the Images to compare your pics. Hard to tell, but it looks to be generally the same design (from what I can see) as a Little Genius or similar.

As far as price, I don't know what a plow goes for in MI, but for $300, it had better be in top-notch working condition. From what I'm seeing on a snowy trailer, it's not. Mechanisms are probably rusted together and zerts ungreased (unless you know for a fact that the owner has been using it lately).

Ultimately, it's your call. But I wouldn't want to meet the guy half way, find out it's not exactly what you wanted or expected, then feel obligated to buy it because you and he made the trip.

Let us know what happens.

Thanks for info. He has had the plow as a yard decoration. He did say the lifts worked and the wheels spun freely when he loaded on his trailer. I've not been able to find a confirmed IH in a one bottom. Based on pic comparisons I've done I thought I may have finally found one. I have found an Oliver and a jd for 150. But would prefer the IH, just wasn't sure if it was typical of them to run that much higher. Anything in general I should look for other than wear parts if it is an IH? Meeting half way I'm looking at probably an hour trip on the expressway one way.

Perhaps others will chime in on what to look for on an IH plow.

I'm just balking at the meeting arrangements, that's all. Hope it works out for you.

Totally agree on the meet its be my luck to show up to a no show. Just wondering a fair price to counter with. Was kind of feeling the asking price a bit high but just wasn't sure.

Asking price is a bit high ,BUT 1-b pull type plows are NOT easy to find,--so factor that into the story,---I would say the guy kinda has an idea of what he has!
Plan on spending a LOT of time on grinding the rust off that moldboard, too! Then lastly, how much use do you have for it???
After thinking all this over and the moldboard and share is in good condition as for min. wear, its mostly your call!--see if he would take #200., if not then $300. it is! thanks; sonny

If I can have him verify its an IH plow (which if my reading is correct there should be stamps in the cast) I may take a gamble and see if he will deliver sight unseen. The money saved on gas and feeling obligated to buy after making the trip I'll basically be purchasing sight unseen anyway. Thanks for the help again fellas. I'll let you know how it works out. With any luck I'll be working a garden this spring. Thanks again.

Okay I have some more information. I believe it to be a case 1 bottom. I have a few additional pics the seller sent. Any advice on price would be much appreciated. Thanks again.

Case made good plows too. We used several of them over the years, and a 1-b would indeed be a good find! thanks; sonny

Well thought it over a bit really would prefer the IH. I have an Oliver and JD plow in the area as well. Both with an asking price of 150. So I'm going to let the seller know the best I can do is 150 on the case, and see where goes from there. I've attached pics of those as well. Anyone know which is which? At 150 I think I could get my money back in case that elusive IH shows up around these parts.

Not sure about which is which. But do know that you've gained valuable information before making that trip on the plow in question, which is good. Also, he knows how much you're willing to offer, so if he and you meet, you both are not surprised.

Let us know what happens.

Thinking you will need to relubricate the wheel bearings and polish up the moldboard.

You will need to disassemble, clean and lubricate the trip/lift mechanism.
