Newgren plow.


04.jpg

Dodge was aggressive in marketing the Power Wagon as a multi-purpose farm vehicle that could perform all of the tasks expected of a tractor, a truck, and a portable power plant. One of the more common implements that the Dodge sales literature showed in use behind the truck was the 3-point hitch attached turning plow.

Some images featured the plows with applied Monroe decals prominently displayed. The Monroe Auto Equipment Company was the producer of the hydraulic 3-point hitch available for the Power Wagon but the plows, as well as the rest of the attached implements listed in the Dodge Special Equipment Manual, all appear to have been supplied by The Newgren Company. Newgren was a subsidiary of Monroe during the time period when Dodge was the most active in promoting the Power Wagon for farm use.

Model numbers and descriptions assigned to plows in the Dodge literature match those found in Newgren/Jeep literature nearly character for character. The only exceptions were found in the 3-bottom models, which appear to have been offered for use only with the Power Wagon.

The available history of Newgren tells that the company did not actually have any manufacturing capability, but served simply as a distributor of implements manufactured and/or assembled from existing parts supplied by other vendors. Vintage Newgren, Monroe, Dodge, and Jeep literature and photos from the late 1940's and early 1950's show Newgren plows as having a strong resemblance to the Budd Company produced Ferguson and Dearborn plows of the same time period. It is thought that Newgren sourced individual plow components from the same companies then supplying Budd for the Ferguson and Dearborn models.

There are some key details that set the Newgren units apart from the more common ones offered by Dearborn and Ferguson. Full length flat sides on the main beams, formed rather than forged main beams, and the presence of a clamp-on automotive type depth wheel and tire assembly are three of the unique features of a Newgren.

Comparison between Newgren, Ferguson, and Dearborn plows


Newgren-4.JPG

At a glance, the second generation Newgren Plows, produced from 1948 through about 1951 and marketed for use on the Willys-Overland Jeep, Dodge Power-Wagon, and ATC Terratrac tractors, appear nearly identical to Ferguson and Dearborn models from the same time frame. It is not uncommon to find Newgren plows residing in the collections of Ferguson and Dearborn enthusiasts - especially if they are missing their Newgren data plates.

There are however some key details that set the Newgren plows apart from their Dearborn and Ferguson cousins. Full length flat sides on the main beams, formed rather than forged main beams, and the presence of a clamp-on automotive type depth wheel and tire assembly are three of the unique features of a Newgren.

The photos enclosed here are intended to serve as a quick "spotters guide" to determine if that oddball old plow is truly a Newgren or not.
