A/C Model B implements

Report to Moderator

I have an A/C Model B and would like to use it to plant small food plots. I am interested in purchasing a disc and a plow. Is the B capable of pulling a four to six foot disc and a one to two bottom plow? Also, where can I find these implements? Is it possible to use them without a 3-point hitch? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for your time.

Hi Tom,

The B was never a 3pt hitch tractor from AC. Some have used aftermarket 3pts though. The AC implements intended for the B were of a proprietary design that mounted to the B chassis. Implements designed for the B will fit the B and most (if not all) will also fit the C. They will not work with other tractors. The plows for the B were called two-way pick-up plows. The tractor is powered for only using a single bottom at a time. There were both a left and right hand bottom so one could plow in both directions...once down and once back, and so on on the same side of the plot. Here's what the B pick-up plows look like:

These are an aftermarket plow for the B made by WIARD Plow Co. The "official" AC plows are very similar but mount somewhat differently.

The B is fully capable of using a 6ft, 4 gang disc harrow. The AC version for the B was the pull-behind type as shown here:

Have an old B&W Kodak of Dad's first B. A 38-39 with 1 bottom tractor mounted plow. I was to young to remember it but learned to plow on a newer B with the same plow setup. Front mounted on the reverse mounted drawbar and rear linkage up to the hydralic lift. Details are lost in time. I'm searching information on this type plow so when I find one I will know it is correct and will fit my 39 B

Rod and Eldon,

Thanks for the wealth of information. Do you know where I can locate a 6ft. disc harrow, or are these implements difficult to find because of the introduction of the 3-point hitch.


Since I am so green when it comes to tractors. Please explain what a snap coupler is. All that I know is that the AC B has a drawbar behind the tractor

Thanks again for all your help.

The snap coupler was an AC patented hitch system that featured a bell shaped coupler under the transmission that "snapped" when you backed the tractor up to the implement when hitching. It also featured two "hands" on lift arms that matched lift points on the implements to raise and lower the implement. It was a handy system, fast and easy to hook up and go without leaving the tractor seat. Unfortunately the 3pt hitch design became the standard and AC had no choice but to follow in the early '60s.

Most WD45s, CAs, D10, D12, D14, D15 and D17 tractors came with the snap coupler hitch from the factory. Late model Bs could be ordered with it, and WDs could be converted. If you are still uncertain what you have, email me and I will give you a link to my webpage which shows some sc stuff.

Rod I think he might have a snap coupler on his B. They were available on the later models. In that case I think that any snap coupler implements that fit a CA would also fit the sc on a B (same as a D10/D12).

Your right Eldon. I guess the later Bs were available with a snap coupler. It does show up that way in the parts book.
