It looks like a trip plow. IH made them, Deere made them, probably others too. I don't know enough about them to attempt to identify the brand.

I got a chance to plow with a Little Genius (IH) 2-14 trip plow pulled by an M last fall. It was a blast.

If I ever stumble across a single bottom 12" trip plow it's going to get hitched to my Cub.

I have 2 JD trip plows. I identified by finding parts numbers on the plows, then researching the part numbers.

You may need to disassemble and clean up the trip mechanism on the left wheel. They are pretty simple, usually only need a clean up and lubrication.

If you have the space to turn the tractor and plow around, they work great.

Edit: There appears to be a break away mechanism on the plow hitch. OK, use a piece of twine to attach the plow's trip rope to the tractor. If the plow catches something and breaks away from the tractor, the trip line need to break and not pull the operator off the tractor.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Thanks fellas! I had another guy inform me it was an AC so I did some research and found a pic of one and it sure looks identical. Guess I am off to pick it up tomorrow and give my lil Farmall B something to jerk around this upcoming spring! They do look fun to play around with. We have a patch around d 20 acres I am gonna devote to the critters next year! They oughta eat well come next summer/fall!

It'll take you awhile to do 20 acres with that plow.

On the rig I was using last year the trip rope was not tied to the tractor. It was long enough to drape over the light bar with the free end hanging about 1/2 way to the ground, which gave it enough weight to stay in place.. If you were on the ball you could stop the tractor before the rope all played out.

The 2nd time the plow kicked off I knew to reel the rope in as I backed up so it didn't end up under the tractor tire.

The fun comes when it breaks away just as you are pulling the rope to raise it. It is amazing how long your arm gets before you remember to let go. :x

Now you just have to get it set up properly.

At a plow day this spring a guy with a Farmall H commented on how much easier it was going since he'd moved the attachment point to the center of the draw bar and adjusted the plow accordingly. Earlier, rather than adjusting the plow, he had it hooked off center and had to fight to keep the tractor going straight.

Properly adjusted, the plow pulls easier, wears less, plows more uniformly, and the tractor is easier to drive. Spending time reading the plow manual and making the proper adjustments is not a waste of time, it is an investment for an enjoyable plowing experience.
