We bought a 5540 5-16s new back in the early 60s and never used the "gauge wheel." It has survived many thousands of acres and a number of tractors:1800, 1850, 2-105, and a 1950gm. It always has done an excellent job with a lot of clearance for trash. The pipe plows are getting hard to find. The only downside is it doesn"t have auto-reset bottoms(none did back then). The 5540 is more than 500 pounds heavier compared to other plows of its time(IH 512, JD F-120 etc.) It will out plow all these plus JD 1450. I have been told the 5440 was more common with the 770/880 tractors. I"m not sure what the difference is, probably something to do with the draft sensing?

The 5440 is not a steer able plow like the 5540. It was made in a 3 bottom model as well. They were made for the power traction hitch tractors. They also have a small tail wheel. There was no draft control on a power traction hitch.
