Anyone have an idea why?
I have a plow, I accidentally busted the coulter off trying to free it up... Not sure the coulter is necessary as I've seen big plows without coulters.

Coulters are not always needed. It depends a lot of the plowing conditions. If the soil is soft, you probably don't need it. Sometimes they just collect debris between the coulter and the plow to where you have to stop and pull it back out. This especially happens when plowing in corn stubble. Been there, done that more than I care to admit. I would think that the best and possibly only times a coulter would be useful is in hard dry ground or when plowing virgin ground.

Up at PAPD, the ground is turned every year. No sod to cut through, which is what the coulter is really for.
The soil up there is pretty loamy/soft, and cuts like a hot knife through butter. No need for it. You'll actually do WORSE with the coulter up there.
