I've seen them and one fella has one round "here". I've been keeping my eyes out for a 3 bottom rollover but there just aren't any for sale close by. The one that is for sale is so high priced I could just pay somebody to do my plowing haha.

Like this? Please excuse the roots and straw and weeds, it doesn't know it is suppose to be a useless antique, and I'm not letting on. Mine desparately need the special top link, or atleast a blueprint of the Dearborn-Lindeman roll over link. I believe it works like the plastic rollers on a screen door, but without even a picture, it will be a long process to fab one up. I have a postage stamp compare to some of you guys, but it saves alot of time and gas even on flat ground by not have to travel the ends side to side- till you are almost done. But I got to get the top link to be able to stay in the seat the whole time. Ferguson butterfly plows need a special bracket around the pto aswell, these aren't just a one minute 3 point hook up, all seem to need extra do dads to work properly. And the extra weight per bottom keeps them from popping up in dry or rocky ground. Yep. They still have their uses.....

Call them rollover plows here. Saw them in the late 60's in this area. Ideal for terraced slight hill side tobacco fields. Saved a lot of time getting the fall turning done.

Back east. I've talked with a gentleman in Wi. for years by e-mail and AIM. He asked me once how I could run cattle here in Va. He said he thought the east was nothing but towns and cities. Heck Va. before the 12 years of drought was 16th in the nation of cattle production. I have a strong feeling that folks west of us that have never traveled to the east have the wrong idea about the east. Just in Va. alone the top dollar for the state income is agriculture. Charlotte co. Va. just to my NE. has one traffic light in that county. I watched over the years on NAT of the change over to no-till planting in the late 90's on. We were no-tilling beans and corn in the early 70's here. No-till took a good while to work it's way west. So in some instances we started trends in farming here and it moved west.

Around here (Vermont) they are called side hill plows. The idea being that you plow back and forth along the slope always throwing the furrow uphill. Before tractors, they were used the opposite way, because it was thought that a team didn't have the power to throw the furrow uphill. It was still better than plowing straight up and down the hill. You can still find fields that are cut right down to the ledges at the top, and filled in to the top of the stone walls at the bottom.

You don't see many rollover plows, most farmers gave up on plowing the hillsides years ago, and if they do have to they just deadhead back across with a big one way.

I still use a Farmall single bottom two way on my Super C.

Nice looking tractor and plow. I've never seen 2 way plows here in MD. Your lawn sure looks nice in the background. It looks manicured. Hal

There is a tractor dealer about an hour from me here in Maine and he has a nice rollover 3p.h., 3 bottom MF plow just rusting away. I would consider it but I plow tight to the headlands and doing a sharp 180 degree turn it tuff. New england does have them. Cal

They've had rollover plows in this area for years. I remember Dad using a 3 bottom rollover behind his SMTA in the late 50's. I think it was 1989 a friend of mine bought a 740 acre block of land, hadn't been deep plowed in years. So he bought a new White 5 bottom with a clod buster and hooked it to a JD 4840. Once we got it set, we ran 24-7 to plow the block. He plowed in the daytime, I ran at night. 5 days later we had the 740 acres finished.

I only heard of one where I grew up south of Marshalltown. I never saw it, but heard that it was a 3 bottom and he pulled it with a Massey Ferguson diesel that would probably have been rated at a 4-16 or a 5-14 single plow. He had real hilly ground and plowed uphill on the coutour.

Have a John Deere 825 3X16 roll-over. With a little bit of luck, it might be ready for a plow day in the near future. Has all the coulter brackets, but I've yet to round up any coulters for it.

Hi Steve, here in the UK mounted reversable ploughs were first developed in the late 1940s when the 3 point lift became avaible. They really took off in the early 1960s when tractor hydraulic lifts became more powerful. Like to see the tumblebug ploughs working and a friend of mine as an I H one like yours. At our tractor club working days we get 2 MM tumblebugs, 1 case tumblebug and the IH one. When IH here in the UK started building the BM tractor in 1949 they fitted a very good 3 point lift on them as that was the type of lift all the other tractor makers in the UK were fitting. MJ
