That is an excellent picture with great detail when you blow it up. Thanks for posting.
She's driving over already plowed ground.????/
She should have the two rt. wheels in the furrow like they are, but going the other direction.
She's filling in the furrow.
Aaron : She's starting plowing in the middle of the field.She do it the right way!!! with this kind of plow. At the end, after turning she drive with her right wheels in the same track as she do it now.This is the way we always do it with competition plowing .
Can anyone supply a picture of the plow behind her tractor? I have a restored '19 Fordson (ladderside) and would like a pull-from-behind plow but don't know what to look for. Thanks in advance
Is this an early model? I thought the Fordsons all had split tanks and a selector for gas or kerosene. This one has a cast tank.
George, I don't have a picture of one, but the correct plow for a fordson F would be a Oliver #7. Deere had a plow specifically for the Fordson also but don't recall the model #. I see a lot more Olivers.
I would date this tractor some time between 1922 to 1924. The Holly 280 manifold that is on there was used during those years.. fenders became standard equipment in 24... I think? the cast iron starting tank was discontinued when the holly 290 and Kingston regenerator were used. a compartment was added to the fuel tank. hence two filler holes.
What is the science behind the angled cleats on the drivers ?
George, If you click on the link that Dane has posted and under that picture click full size photo you can read on the plow that it says The Oliver---- something probably Machine co. Jim
Burger, straight cleats would give a very bumpy ride. Angled cleats fix that.
James, All I could see was a rather gargantuan wagon behind the closest Fordson and couldn't click on anything in or under the photo. Thanks for the pic,tho' Erich But maybe I'll Google Oliver #7 plow. Thanks also Adam
This is what James is referring to.
Burger, the angled cleats also make them somewhat self cleaning.Straight lugs fill up with dirt and get packed in very tightly. Dave
