    Just picked up another Parlin & Orendorff One-Way Plow

    This is probably the smallest plow I've ever owned other than the small Cat 0 plows for the Sears garden tractors. I had inquired about this particular plow which hadn't been used in many years. The owner passed away and the widow was too afraid of dealing with strangers, so I just left it alone. Later the property went up for sale and I tried contacting the real estate agent by first calling and then via email. Never heard back from him. I wasn't the only one who had contacted him, but for other reasons and he wouldn't call them back either. I kept the plow in the back of my mind and would occassionally think about it if I was passing by.

    Today, while running an errand, I saw a friend's HD pickup with trailer backed up to the plow in that field. My initial reaction was to call him, but hesitated for a few minutes. He was trying to load the plow by himself (80 years old) and realized it was a bigger job than he had realized. Talk about perfect timing. As I was calling his phone, he had gone to his office to try and find my phone number to call me to come get the plow. The sale on the land was about to be finalized and the relatives who were handling the property had no use for the plow. My friend was trying to save the plow for me. What a good friend!!

    It was too far to drive a tractor to lift it, so I just decided to use come-alongs and chains to winch the plow up on my trailer. Actually worked up a good sweat as the temperature was in the upper 80's here.

    When I get some time to unload it from the trailer, I'll take some pics and share them.

    The price couldn't be beat. FREE

    EDIT: I forgot to mention to anyone who isn't familiar with the Parlin & Orendorff Company. They were a well known plow company that International Harvester purchased. The company was based in Canton, Illinois

    Sorry guys. Had intended to try and get some pics yesterday, but was running on almost NO SLEEP. Some criminal activity occurred too close for comfort at night. A man hunt ensued after the bad guys on the run from law enforcement crashed someone's new camaro into a bridge and the driver bailed out.

    As for taking pics of the plow in use, will have to give everything a good going over prior to attempting that. This plow is pretty darn old and don't know yet the date of manufacture.

    Guess maybe my IH 504 wouldn't be too much power for it.

    It sounds more and more like you need to leave that plow on the trailer, load some other stuff with it, and get out of Dodge.

    I know that's easier said than done, though.

    Yeah 56, I'm working on that very thing. Been selling off a lot of extra things no longer needed so there'll be less to deal with upon moving. Just hope the land will sell soon.
    So much of the surounding farm land has been developed.

    Finally had some time to get the plow unloaded off the trailer today. If the rain hadn't been an issue I would've taken some pics. Maybe next week I can take some.

    Despite feeling under the weather from a nasty type of upper respiratory bug that's going around, I went ahead and got out in the wind to take a few pics of the plow. Need to buy some of the original manuals for these and even some sales literature.

    If you look at the main part of the frame, you can tell that these type plows can be and were used with other attachments.

    At least this one is much smaller than the others and was a little easier to load and unload.

    If anyone is curious about the tractor, it's an International 504.

    This is real interesting. I have never seen anything like this before. How is it used and what are the advantages to using a plow like this. I will show my ignorance. Would someone use this instead of a mold board plow or is this for a special use?
