david brown 3 share plow

Post by jp » Sat May 16, 2020 5:38 am

Hello, I have a david brown 3 share reversible plow with mechanical turning. The plow does not turn completely, is it possible to put a weight like on plows with 2 coulters or is it a problem of adjustment?

The DB manually reversible ploughs do not "fly over" when you have pulled the handle. There is no trip mechanism. You have to pull it half way and then usually push the handle a bit to finish the turnover. It is possible to make this a little easier if you turn the steering rapidly half way through the process and get the plough to swing on the linkage in the right way. It's difficult to explain but as long as the left and right hand sides of the plough are reasonably balanced, i.e. no soil on the bit that has just been taken out of the ground, then it's just a case of getting used to it. But don't expect it to go over just because you pull the handle, it doesn't work like a Ransomes, Huard, etc.

Ok, I understand better! It is therefore necessary to complete the reversal by pushing the lever in the other direction. (rearward)

Yes, to a degree. The trick is to pull the lever as hard as you can so that when it has gained momentum you don't have to push it very hard back to the rest position. There is a definite knack to the procedure, you could say that it is an acquired art ! As I said previously, the turnover isn't a trip mecahanism that is "loaded" when you drop the plough to the ground like other manual turnover reversible ploughs. One other thing that you need to be aware of with DB reversibles, especially the 3 furrow and that is the pinion shaft. They have a habbit of snapping. The chap who had a very big input into the design of the plough (Mr. Frank Williams) once told me that the powers at DB would not allow him to use the necessary grade of steel for the shaft that should have been used and it was about the only thing about the plough that needed serious modification.
