Implements first an H

Postby LittleBigTires1948 » Mon May 11, 2020 1:44 am

So I’m in the process of getting a farmall H with no implements, my question is, what is the best way to get non 3 pt hitch implements, I already have a good amount of 3 pt implements because my father has a newer tractor, I really don’t want to spend a grand for the 3 pt hitch kit, is it something I could build or would horse drawn implements be the best way to go, or maybe farmall implements, it does not have a fast hitch by the way, I’m just kind of lost. Hopefully this doesn’t come off as too stupid a question. Thanks for any help,

~Hayden

There were a lot of implements designed to be powered by ground motion and controlled with a pull cord to the operator station. I'm not by any means an expert but am certain there were plows, discs and manure spreaders of that type. The plow type is called a trip plow and I'm currently in the market for one myself. Trip plows are fairly common in this area and they're generally less expensive than 3 point equipment.

You can run a one way cylinder on a plow, disc, combine or whatever with the Lift-All. It can also be plumbed to operate two-way cylinders. You of course still have trail behind implements. They did make mounted plows, but they are probably scarce. You are making me want to spend some time and get my H up and running again! John

Just picked up an old trip plow for 200 bucks the guy was gonna scrap it, but threw it up on Facebook marketplace about 2 hours after I put up this post. I really lucked out. I have never used one and it needs some work to get it operating again I imagine as it looks like any 100 year old farmer’s plow should look like. When I get it home I’ll put up pictures of it and my new tractor too

Congratulations! I should warn you have been bit by a bug possibly worse than Covid. I got my H 30 years ago, then a 450D, broke the crank, replaced with a 560 gas, then downsized to a Cub. Still have the H and Cub as well as a Cub Lo-Boy, Cub Cadet 122 and my wife has her Dad's 8N. I still have the Little Genius 2-14 that I got from a neighboring farmer. I'll probably never part with that plow just because of the memories. Welcome to the club.John

I have an LG 2-14 too....handles need the connecting rods to raise and lower but other than that it is in great condition and ready for rehabbing. I gave away my rehabbed JD 52 and got this for the next project for $100.

Look on Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist.. Might take a while to find that. But you have the opportunity to haggle.
Favorite quotes by me. If you want to you can but if you don't you wont... most possibly yes but maybe no.... and as always buy guns keep America free

Hayden,
I would bet that with all the corn and tobacco farmers in the Ellington, Somers, Enfield, East Windsor area that still use their Farmall A's, B's, C's, H's, and M's to haul carts, they must have implements in the hedgerows. Same with potato farmers in the CT River Valley of Massachusetts.
I drive by Meadowbrook Farm in East Longmeadow on the way to work every day. They have a Cub with a full set of cultivators, wheel weights, and planter drive train sitting as yard art at their entrance on Somers Road, another Cub next to a C(?) in the weeds on Somers Road, and what looks like a boat load of implements behind their barns on Meadowbrook Road.

Making your H useful is very important. You can spend a thousand on implements easily. If you already have the implements available to you, spending that same grand on the H is probably very well worth it to have a tractor that is useful.

Good looking tractor Hayden.

Looking forward to meeting you in person.
Have a great weekend.
