Interesting to see the equipment and soil type.
Our Indiana farm has 7" of clay based top soil with solid yellow clay subsoil (probably 50 feet thick in most places). Tilling it into the topsoil is a major clod maker. These are like ceramic greenware. Not fired, but not to be modified in size. (Oh yea, rocks vary from beach flat pebbles to bowling ball and larger glacier carried granite)
Our "drill" was an Oliver.

Janicholson, where are you located in Indiana? I worked up around Leesburg for awhile north of Warsaw and up to Millersburg. There sure were plenty of rocks around those parts, spent many a day picking them up in front of the planters. Anything smaller than a volleyball we left in the field because it would go thru the planters, but there were plenty of them that required heavier equipment to remove. Not something a central Nebraska boy was used to seeing.
