    Does anybody recognize this v-plow? Are they any good? Know how much do they weigh?

    What do you think this might be worth? The truck has the motor sitting in the bed and looks rough. I want the plow to put on something else. Maybe I could use the truck later on, but who knows what's the matter with it right now.

    Things I have I could mount to: 1996 ranger, 1999 explorer, 1983 f150, 1976 Jeep J20, 1974 scout II, or a 1999 F150. Most interested in mounting to the explorer or scout.

    Thanks!

    Its an old Diamond plow.

    Are they good? They were for their time but are now considered as dinosaurs. No parts availability now.

    And yes they're heavy...not really a good plow choice for most of the vehicles you mentioned.

    But for a $1 I'd buy it for a conversation piece. :D

    I have no info on the plow but would assume it's to heavy for everything on your list except maybe the J20.

    I certainly wouldn't put it on a ranger or explorer. I can't imagine even being able to find parts for it, IMO its only really worth its price in scrap steel.

    Looks like a TM6.5 plow, E47 pump and mounts for an older Jeep CJ (the picture is a CJ3B). This plow would be a good match for one of you downsized vehicles, Ranger, Explorer, but you need to buy or fabricate mounts.

    The first one was a Diamond V for sure. Once you have one you'll never forget them. The heaviest built plow I've owned or seen. They were belt driven, and had a 3 toggle swicth controller. They would out plow anything else that was on the market at the time. They had a super high trailing edge which could throw snow over banks like no other. The main problem with them was they left a trail of snow down the middle of the blade(or as I said the Fawk'n thing is broke in the middle!!) I kept it for two years and tried coming up with different ways to stop the center snow problem.:gunsfiring: I sold it and the guy that bought it uses it to keep his wood road clear(no worries of a little center snow in there). You need a 3/4 tonHD or 1 ton for that set up.
