All 975 Moldboard Plows come with a rear gauge wheel included in standard equipment. The rear gauge wheel provides the following features:
Compatible with tractors equipped with Quik-Coupler, the integral hitch offers unexcelled maneuverability in turns and when parking in tight areas:
The width of cut on all 975 Moldboard Plows can be set at 406 mm or 457 mm (16 in. or 18 in.) by moving the standards to different bolt holes in order to:
The underframe clearance is 813 mm (32 in.) to allow excellent material flow through the plow.
The V-style mainframe is made of 152-mm x 102-mm (6-in. x 4-in.) welded tubular steel to handle the stress of tough plowing and reversing action as well as tight turns:
All 975 Moldboard Plows use only one set of bottoms.
The moldboards are reversed laterally by a hydraulic cylinder that is standard equipment. There are several advantages of this design over traditional two-way rollover plows with two sets of bottoms:
The reversing pin is positioned at a 13.5-degree angle, instead of being straight up, for even plowing in both directions. The reversing pin does not require adjustments by the operator.
Steel shins are available as a field-installed option only.
The frog is pre-drilled at the factory to accept this attachment.
With this attachment, the steel shins will allow longer wear life when soil first comes into contact with the plow, but still offers the option of a plastic moldboard for sticky soil conditions.
A rear gauge wheel can be ordered for plows not so equipped.
