This model 1:64 Case International Harvester (IH) chisel plow, mulch master with folding wings has been hard to research online. When I have found a model the site usually has a notice beside it that it is out of stock. AgFarmToys shows one similar to this, but without the wings, for $49.95.
When I go to the Case IH site where they sell the real, full-sized, functional farm equipment sites, I learn that these are built to handle tough tillage conditions like the proverbial workhorse. These implements can also have other attachments for specific tilling and mulching conditions.
With the wings up, the transportation width of this chisel plow is only 18-21 feet, so it will take up some room on a country road, but not all. When the wings are down in the field, it has a working spread of 26-62 feet, however the sections are jointed in such a way that it does not miss hollow dips in the soil, or higher ridges. Some of these diecast models alone can go for prices like $125.
If you are a farmer and want to buy the fully functional chisel plow mulch master, you have to tell the dealer all that you want it to do for your, and then they build it for you at a custom price.
Quite the clever inventions – these farm implements, aren’t they? Maybe that explains why my brother Tom collected a number of them by different brand names, etc. He used to work as a farm hand for a number of years when he dropped out of school. After he got married he took training to become a farm machinery mechanic.
