the proper terminoligy would probably a breaking plow,and a turning plow around here. A true sod breaking plow had a extra long moldboard on it that was twisted more to help lay over sod. Since that was normaly some really tough plowing the extra moldboard helped it turn over at low speeds. I doubt that you will find a true breaking plow built anymore new. The ,what we called turning plows, were simply moldboard plows with shorter moldboards built and designed to turn ground over at higher speeds. My guess is that would do what you need if its suited to your tractor size. You could at one time change moldboards to say a sod or stubble bottoms,but nearly all ive seen in that last 30 years have had general purpose bottoms on them.I havent seen a true breaking plow since i was a kid except in museums.If you buy a new plow you may check to see if they offer different style moldboards for it still. disc plows do sort of a different thing than a moldboard,i use one but i dont know how it would work in the really thick sod we used to breakout years ago.Ive never tried,but you could have penetration problems,i simply dont know.
