I am having difficulty researching my latest "find" because I don't know what to call it. I have seen several over the years that I know were built as a complete unit and all were JD.
I have searched every name I can think of on the internet with no results. The JD dealer suggested "pasture drill" but he could find nothing in his system.

It is a "disk plow" with narrow blade spacing. Seed box is chain driven and drop tubes place the seed where the disk will cover it as it rolls the fresh cut dirt over. There are no "press wheels" or drag chains that follow.

Decals are gone but casting marks all indicate JD.

You got it. One way disc or discer or disc tiller. On a lot of prairie farms it was the only tillage implement for a lot of years. The father of a friend of mine showed me fields in alberta that were cup shaped due to the use of these things over decades because they drove round and round. It was highly recommended that you never turn sharp right with one. This older gent said there were lots of tractors that were never unhooked from these things all their working life. 60 horse could pull 15 working width in most places. They weren"t worth a hoot in sod.

Massey Harris made a lot of them for this part of the country years ago. I think they were made in Canada/

is this something like what you bought.
they called it a disker tiller with planter box on top.

it has a line of disk blades under it that lightly chop up the ground for the seed bed.

guess it got the job done in one pass.

PJ, remember that a disk plow has blades mounted individually and run deeper. A disk tiller (what you have) will have blades mounted on a common gang bolt and run shallower. While they were called many things in many places, in Deere terminology they were known as disk tillers. Mike

Didn't Deere call the late models Sur-Flex tillers or something like that?

I believe some models were Surflex tillers but not all models. Some were rigid. Mike

I think the term they used back in the day for that machine was "disker"

It had a number of disc blades lined up on single axle, with a speeder box on top.

Used to plant the great northern plains in wheat.
