I try to master the names of each implement so that I don't sound like an idiot when in the presense of those that know. However, when talking to those that know little or nothing you have to call the implements by both names until they figure out what the heck you're talking about when you say you have a 10" moldboard plow. Otherwise you can get the response, "That won't move much snow in the winter." LOL


Well there you or I go with the regional lingo. Out here we either push or plow snow, but the implement used to do so is always a Blade. If it blown we use a blower.

Or google search "disc" and most results are along the lines of "disc brakes"

Thanks that will be handy for me as i have not so much snow but loads of soil on my field, so it's a Moldboard or Bottom plow when talking about dirtplowing?

Even up here in NewEngland they call things differently. ie"snow plow" , "dozer blade"( for dirt) "bottom plow" and a Harrow is a harrow unless its a "spiked tooth" or "chisel tooth" LOL.
Oh and most all that I have seen have the notched discs up front with the rounds on the rear. And with them set correctly will make your plot look like it was tilled with a roto-tiller.
