Hello:

I have a MF 3 bottom plow that I can't seem to get to sink into the ground at all. I assume I need new rib shares. I hope that is the right term. Can anyone tell me where I can get these for my plow?

Thanks.

Thanks for the responses. Can anyone tell me if the first share is supposed to be curved and pointed in the front?

Thanks again.

I have a MF 62, 3x12" plow, it has new points and coulters.
goes in the ground good,

new points make a big difference in the operation of the plow, the new points must have negative rake on them as they almost suck the plows in the ground.

I was going to trade these plows for a much newer set of MF 2x14" plows with auto kick back feature, but the points on the 2x14" must have been worn out as the plows would not go in the ground, also they would not follow my tractor no matter the adjustments I made on the cross bar. I hooked up my old plows and they sunk right in the same ground.

I am no expert, but it takes a while to get a set of plows all set up and running smooth, most of us only plow a garden spot. That is just not a large enough area to give you time for trial and error to get all the kinks worked out. I like to disc the ground a few times so the top soil is loose and it seems to do a good clean job of covering all the grass, etc:

the larger size plow you can buy will cover the filth or debris better and not choke up, these 12" plows do not have that much throat and will choke up, if there is a lot of debris on the ground like corn stalks

2x16" size plows would be great, but I did not find many used in that size that I could buy.

if you get your plows working good, mark down the measurements on the plow, height of right lift arm, height of left lift arm, length of top link.
these numbers will be a great help to you next year when you go to hook up the old plow for a little garden plowing and you will almost be right on.

Either your shares are worn(they look like 'sled runners') or the ground is too hard for penetration.Need to know if they are 'throw aways' or 'blacksmith' shares.Throwaways are available at the dealewrs,'farm stores'(in farming country),Coops.Blacksmiths are very hard to find(and expencive),but they are out there.Some guys here on YT have some to sell....Find a good welding shop to rebuild them.

My tiller tines seem to wear too soon. A welder at work told me to bring in the tines and he used hard facing and that made a big difference. Hal

Today's Featured Article - A Lifetime of David Brown - by Samuel Kennedy. I was born in 1950 and reared on my family’s 100 acre farm. It was a fairly typical Northern Ireland farm where the main enterprise was dairying but some pigs, poultry and sheep were also kept. Potatoes were grown for sale and oats were grown to be used for cattle and horse feeding. Up to about 1958 the dairy cows were fed hay with some turnips and after that grass silage was the main winter feed. That same year was the last in which flax was grown on the farm. Flax provided the fibre which w ... [Read Article]
