They're both plows here, one is a snow plow or dozer blade and the other is a dirt / moldboard depending who you talk to... I'm guilty of all variations. :D
Everyone seems to call them interchangeably here, makes searching Craigslist a might on the interesting side when you're looking for one or the other.

How'd the weight box turn out?

ok, anyone, where did the word 'moldboard' come from?

and also, nice hook up with the snow blade! factory ready made is good, when you can find it, but when you rework a snow blade or plow or anything and make it work for your tractor that is very cool.

I am not that old of a cuss. However plowboards in certain regions of the world were made of wood and were intended to make sure the earth was turned over or molded to make vegetation degrade and heat the ground also.

I was once told that the first mouldboards/moldboards were wooden. These piece had to be molded or carved into a curved shape. The molded ones would hold up better because the grain of the wood could be used to strengthen the molded board.

As time went on and manufacturing improved, Steel lasted longer and was easier to "mold". It would also keep it's shape indefinitely and wouldn't suffer from rot.
