    Default Chisel Plow

    Im thinking about buying this plow. The guy says its a ford. It measures 5-6 feet or so in width and has 5 teeth. The middle tooth is missing its spring. What do yall think its worth or should i pay for it. He said its heavy and we wont pick it up to put it in the truck, he will use his loader. I asked you think it weighs 400lbs he said at least or around there.

    I'm thinking this is a spring tooth harrow. Yours looks more like what i though a cultivator looks like. S-bend teeth with no springs. This i thought is what everyone calls a spring tooth harrow, or a spike tooth harrow or a chisel plow.

    I went to your website and you list a 610 cultivator and a 623 chisel plow, both of them look like cultivators to me?

    You just listed three very different things. A spring tooth harrow and cultivator are basically the same thing. What you have shown I would call a cultivator. It's not a chisel plow, they do very different things.

    This is a pic of an original drag spring tooth. The teeth themselves were the spring and made of spring steel. When more land was acquired to farm it was found to be aggravating to move one more than just across the road. For a short period spring tooth trailers were built of pipe and usually right on the farm. To load it the tractor was driven across the trailer pulling the spring tooth up on it. That didn't last too long as folding sections were then factory built with wheels. With that advent the spring tooth became more of a cultivator.

    live n learn, i thought they were interchangable? So anyway do you think the thing in my pics will tear up ground that has field grass on it here in the south. This field has not been disked in 5 years and the disk just rides on top. I hate to spend the money on this and the teeth just fold back.

    If they are coil spring loaded and the anchor pins are wore, they will want to pop off in heavy penetration. If you can buy it for $50, you can't go wrong. You can always weld the shanks solid. Ken Sweet

    The shaft of a chisel plow is far, far stronger, thicker than that of a cultivator when you see it in person.... in a photo, the two might look similar, but in reality they are quite different.

    If a field is in grass undisturbed for years, I'd certainly go with a chisel plow. It will take several passes at different angles, then you can go over it with a disk with success, after some of the grass deteriorates.
    Joy is having the tools you need and needing the tools you have!
