Identifying the plow

| April 2007

This is a reply to a question from Mr. Bakker of Aplington, Iowa, about a plow pictured on page 4 in the February 2007 issue of Farm Collector. I have one exactly like it. It is used on a 5 hp Montgomery Ward garden tractor. My dad bought one back in the 1940s, along with a cultivator and plow. It worked real good to plow small gardens. We used the cultivator to work trees and potatoes. My dad helped me build a 30-inch blade for the front, which worked real well in dirt or snow on the farm.
