Tractor Plowing 101

Good tractor plowing remains the key to good farming.

A Ford Dearborn Motors 2-bottom (14-inch) plow. On later versions such as this, check chains were not required on the coulters as a block in the swivel accomplished the same function. The piece above the sliding landside is known as the “frog.” The tubes at the ends of the moldboards are for optional spring-loaded rakes.
