Attention all enthusiasts
- We are looking to locate and save a Frink off-set veeplow such as the one pictured on the rotary plow page. Any help locating one would be greatly appreciated.
Another Frink adFYI- I checked with the folks at Penn-Hazel Equipment and they don't have an offset vee at the yard. The search is still on, I know we can find one to save!
Frink Snow Plow Serial Numbers
The following comment was added by an anonymous contributor regarding Frink sno-plows:F = 1, G = 2, H = 3, J = 4, K =5, L = 6, M = 7, N = 8, P = 9, O = 0
I think they started using this c. 1933-1935 as often the plow would be a different age than the vehicle it was mounted on and someone would complain that they thought they had a "old" or "secondhand" plow instead of new.
Frink had alpha-numeric serial numbers for their snowplows, beginning in the mid thirties as mentioned above. As an example, if your plow serial number is JF***** it means that it was manufactured in 1941 (following the code above). Hope this helps and thanks to anonymous for the information.
Frink Roll-Over Plows
I got an email the other day from Irondinosauerhunter about a Frink Roll-Over plow for sale on eBay. Here is the short video showing what they were made for and how they worked. They worked well plowing airports (military bases) in that you could always plow the snow away from the runway. You'll see how quickly they could be switched from one side to the other. My last comment is that they do a great job throwing the snow, something that most current design reversible plows struggle with.
Here are two photos of the plow that was for sale on eBay. The plow did not sell, so if you are interested, it may show up again.
Here's one for all you Frink Sno-Plow fans- an original set screw parts bag, compliments of anonymous (ferrology).
