Of the two plows in the pictures, the upper mold board plow doesn't work well here as it is very moisture dependent in this Houston Black Clay. If the clay gets any kind of moisture, which it normally has, it will gum up and you just have a big mess.

The disc "one way" plow works perfectly and at two bottoms for 30 ish hp tractors it fits well. For the larger tractors, JD makes one ways out to 16 or so discs.

Mostly what is used here is a disc harrow used as a plow for repeat tendering year to year, and a deep running chisel for new acreage or a periodic plow pan breakup for actively managed soil. For the MF 35 a 6' wide, 20 disc harrow (in two V shaped rows) works fine. The harrow will turn under surface vegitation but leaves the soil much smoother than a moldboard, especially if you drag a spike tooth or other type smoothing harrow behind it.

There are disc plows and then there are disc tillers. A disc plow has a separate standard for each bottom. A disc tiller has the discs on a common axle. Disc tillers are also known as "one ways".

The pictured disc plow pictured above in this thread is in fact a disc plow. The item in this other thread- http://www.ytmag.com/cgi-bin/viewit.cgi?bd=implment&th=189335 - is a disc tiller.

Just to clear up any cornfuzhun.

I have only seen one of the two bottom "plows" shown in the pics. A neighbor guy who flew in WWII had one in behind a B Deere. He had a 100 acre plot and would plant peas and plow them in just to have something to do. He was roughly 85 at the time and the second and third (his kids) generation on the farm.

Everything else of that nature was on a single beam and had at least 16 discs and the "offset" wheel and I vaguely remember a box of dirt.

Thinking back some 25 years ago as haven't seen any since and I was new to country living at the time, I think some had a massive cast offset wheel and I think some had a box of dirt and a much lighter weight wheel....the box supplying the weight to anchor the wheel.

I don't think the guy told me what it was, I just saw what it looked like and don't remember for sure if it had two "standards". I think it did as I remembered being able to see the concave surfaces of both discs in full form which would not have happened had they been on a common axle. His must have had the scrapers broken off or not supplied on whatever brand plow he had.

We referred to them as one ways because the soil was cut only one way as compared to tandem disc harrows that we use down here as plows and cultivators which cut the dirt both ways simultaneously.
