Miscellaneous V plowsThis is a featured page

The Following are a few pics of vintage V plows which I have not been able to identify. They do not look like anything I am familiar with from Frink, Gledhill, Good Roads, Ross, Wausau, Sargent, Baker etc. so I have no idea who made them. There are no plates remaining on them to identify manufacturer, if they ever even had them. Figured some might find them interesting, and also kind of hoping maybe someone knows who made them. The Lumberland and Highland plows are of nearly identical construction so I would assume them to be of teh same manufacture. The Highland one is a slightly larger size. The Forestburgh one is different, appears to be made of a heavier plate steel rather than 8 or 10 gauge sheet, but with very "minimalist" reinforcement. Actually the others appear to have moldboards contrcution of fairly heavy plate as well. Note that unlike Frink or Gledhill, there is no "faceting" of the moldboard from brake-forming on any of these. Am wondering if these are Flink, Balderson, anderson, Valk, or some other?? We are talking vinatges of ca. mid-40s to, at the latest, ca. 1970 for the Forestburgh one- and that one may be of earlier vintage than that as well.

Town of Forestburgh V plow- was worn by ca. 1972 Cat Grader, and possibly an older Galion before that, but is radically different from any Galion V plow I have seen.

This small V plow is 9' wide but only about 34" tall.
It has a very shallow angle to it.
There are no tags on it.
Purchased at the Kemp auction as #313

A view of #313 from the rear.
Looks like a nice rugged plow with the almost solid brace across the back.

I call this one Unknown V plow #1
8' wide
A very nice little V plow.

This simple lightweight bracing may give a clue about the manufacturer.

Unknown V Plow #303
Has 598 welded on one of the upper ears.
12'6" wide and 7'6" tall

This old V plow has seen some work.
It has been bent on the top ears as well as a broken cutting edge.

Look at how the rear bracing is fastened to the sides.
What manufacturer did this?
There are very few welds on this V plow.

Unknown V Plow #301.
Purchased at the Kemp auction in 2009
No tags

http://www.badgoat.net/Old Snow Plow Equipment/Plow Equipment/Snow Plow Manufacturers/Miscellaneous Vee Plows/GW839H629-14.jpg

It has welded into it on the back,
DPW 827 6827
V-4
I think the V-4 may be a manufactures model number.
DPW 6827 is also welded on the push arms.

Nice rugged constuction with a very distinctive X design.
Anyone recognize this fabrication?
