Letters: In Minnesota, it’s a disk plow

You say harrow plow, but in Minnesota, it’s a disk plow.

    From the July 2010 issue of Farm Collector: Mark Peters, shown here with Rick Wisnefske's C-14 harrow plow. "This is a really rare piece," Rick says. "I've never seen another one. Nobody used anything like that around here."

On page 24 of the July 2010 issue of Farm Collector is a photo of a harrow plow. In Minnesota, it was called a disk plow. They were used on farms that had gumbo soil. They made slat-bottom plows for that, but some of the soil was so sticky that it didn’t want to slide even on a slat-bottom plow. That is where a disk plow would work, because it turned as it went through the soil.
