    That's an old spring tooth harrow. Normally used after plowing to work the ground prior to planting.

    Here is another view.

    What would you do with it? What would it do compared to a disk harrow?

    till dirt. does basicly the same thing as a disc just older version.

    if memory servers from previous discussions you need about 5hp per tooth to pull it at full depth

    My father used to use the spring tooth harrow on fall plowing -- by the next spring, the fall plowing had hardened up and wasn't so easy to disk -- the disk wanted to bounce along the top of the fall plowing. We would first use the spring tooth and then disk the fall plowing. The spring tooth was much better at breaking up the fall plowing.

    Spring plowing was much softer and we would just disk that before we planted. FWIW -------
