IH Whirlwind Terrace Plow
I thought your readers would be interested in the IH Whirlwind Terrace plow I displayed last summer at the LeSeuer Pioneer Power show in Minnesota.
    This was originally an IH no. 8, 1-bottom moldboard plow. The 15-in. dia. auger, along with a 3-speed transmission and a pair of pto shafts, was added by Service Equipment of Dallas, Texas. The transmission was the same one found on the Farmall F12 tractor. At the show I pulled the plow around with a Farmall M.
    The company replaced the original moldboard with a shortened-up one to make room for the auger, which bolted on back of the plow. The moldboard would bust the soil loose and then the auger would throw the dirt to the side. You plowed the first round in low gear, and progressed to the higher gears each round or so. By the time you were in third gear dirt was flying out up to 30 ft.
    My plow was originally equipped with a rubber wheel on back, but the rim was shot so I replaced it with a steel wheel. (Kyle Lieske, Henderson, Minn. ph 612 203-9256; liesketractor@gmail.com)
