|Texasmark1 said: (quoted from post at 16:59:24 03/22/13) 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.
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
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
