I took some pictures of some old farm equipment on an abandoned farmstead, among the stuff there are a couple of disc harrows. Here are some pictures. I am pretty sure the small one is an IH, but I am not sure about the other one, I could not find any markings other than part numbers which all started with an E.

Better grab that 2 btm JD #4B plow in the back of the photo. Looks pretty good to me. They bring $300- $400 now-a-days.

As others have said, Disc- tillers, not harrows. A disc tiller has one axle, with some bearings, that connect via a common axle. A Disc-plow , each bottom has a set of 2 bearings, individually capped and sealed, with no axle at all. A disc harrow has 4 gangs, with each gang, having common bearings. Another variation, was the tiller-seeder. It was a disc tiller, with a grain seeder box, on top, to plant small grains in semi-arid areas, where there was no other tillage.

Wish I had those two ALL Crops sitting there. They look in good shape from the back.

Technically they are not disc plows. According to the pictures and information I have seen, disc plows had the discs further apart and set at a noticeably different angle. The International Harvester literature I have found actually calls them Harrow-Plows, they combined features of the disc harrow and disc plow into a single machine.
CH Wendel's book "150 years of International Harvester" has several good pictures and descriptions of both the Disc Plow and the Harrow-Plow

If you want to look for operators or parts manuals look for DISK TILLER and not one way as disk till ers is factory usage and one way is farmer usage.

Here is info about the inventor of the one-way plow:

He was something like a GGUncle to me...I need to consult the family history book for certain.

To me a "disc" is a clod-buster,finisher.With the furrow wheels and lift,that looks like a plow.Tell us more about the antique cinder blocks!!

The first two pictures are an Emerson. I've had several over the years, I have one setting out back now. They were one of the first company's to offer a oneway.

The implements with discs look to me to be disc plows. Some look like they have hitches to pull another disc to increase width of cut.Disc plows are a primary tillage tool used mostly in the western states. To my way of thinking a single or tandom disc is more of a finishing tool in the spring unless used in fall to prepar the ground for fall plowing at which they would nopt have any horrows or other finishing attatchments attatched to them. I am in east central Il. where we used moldboard plows but there a few disc plows in the sandy ground areas of the state. By the way is their a picture or video missing, moved, or deleted? I only counted 8 images (pictures) and a moved or deleted notice. Armand
