In 1875 ,John Deere manufactures and sells the Gilpin 2-Wheel Sulky Plow. It makes plowing easier by allowing the operator to ride while driving three horses. Sulky plow sales will reach 135,102 in 1899. This design later evolves into three-wheel plows and gang plows with two bottoms.

In 1881 , the Gilpin was improved in a major way by the development of a "power-lift," allowing the plow bottom to come out of the ground by simple pressure of the hand on a catch which connected to the land wheel. Few people would argue with the company's claim that it was "The King of the Riding Plows." During his 23 years with Deere, Moore contributed a great deal, including 31 patents processed in his name.
