Thanks for all the information guys this is what I need to be informed in buying this stuff. The plow interests me even more now that yall are calling it a MF plow because ill be pulling it with a MF/Ferguson 35. No coulters is pretty common in this area for some reason and I can't recall ever seeing one for sale with coulters of any size. My main purpose of this is as you guessed working foodplots and a small market garden.
The thing that really has my attention is the disc plow because this is what I have been looking for. What exactly should I check on the disc plow and what issues will be a deal breaker? How can I tell rear wheel is in good enough shape to guide the plow properly and what size should the discs be for it to be useable? Are parts available for old dearborne disc plows?

Another question I just thought of I see where you are talking about the moldboard looks worn but how does that happen seems like you would have to let the share get waaaay far gone for that to happen and by that point wouldn't it be plowing like crap?

If I was guessing I would say it has been run with worn out shares and the moldboard suffered because of it. As far as disc plows, I love my Ferguson disc plow and if you can find one I would recommend it. Just going by what I"ve heard the Dearborn disc plow isn"t as good of a plow as the Ferguson or the Massey versions, there are a couple of companies making brand new disc plows right now and they are exact clones of the Massey versions, so that has to say something about their design.I would check the bearings on the discs to see if the bearings are loose if they are it has probably been run that way. If the spring on the tail wheel is missing you won"t be able to keep it in the furrow as well as if the disc in the middle of the tail wheel is worn you won"t be able to keep it in the furrow. If the scrapers are missing it won"t be much count either. Instead of a disc plow, have you given any thought to a Ferguson or Dearborn 9 shank spring tine tiller? I have 2 and honestly I probably use them more than any other plow I have. I usually plow and disc in the fall but in the spring it"s the 9 shank tiller from then on. Just throwing another idea out there for you and those plows are easy to find. Ferguson called it a tiller and Ford called it a field cultivator, but it is the same plow.

Jason, I too like my old ferguson mf64 disc plow, it does a great job.

always wanted one of those ferguson 9 shank tillers, but never found one around my area of west KY.

I did find an old AC field cultivator and cut the AC snap couple hitch off, welded on a 3 pt hitch. It works good, heavy for a little TO-35.
