I have never plowed without them; but here in Indiana I rarely see a plow without them. On an older plow (like I use) it helps cut trash from hanging on the plow bottom. I remember specifically a neighbor that always had large lumps of corn stalks where his plow deposited maybe a hundred or better stalks at once after dragging them several feet when the corn stalks just would not break; until enough weight, & drag made it happen. Older plows sit low, & trash clearance is a real concern. Also in cases of hard soil it might actually reduce the HP requirement by a little. That was very important when people used only 10 - 15 HP to pull each plow bottom! My dad believed he saved up to 2 HP per bottom in hard 5 year old Alfalfa fields. He himself would say he couldn"t prove it; because he never went without coulters either!
