Prong Point For Moldboard Plows
Designed by St. Thomas, Ont. farmer Ron Prong, and his son Larry, the Prong Point has an adjustable chisel point, plus side points that break up the soil but without turning it over. Like a chisel plow, 50% of the trash is left intact, explains Ron.
Bolt-on Prong Points replace the existing moldboard bottoms. Both the side points and chisel shank are mounted on a steel frame and both are replaceable.
The chisel point's depth is adjustable for regular and deep tillage, and you can get side points to fit your plow size. Coulters can be left on to cut trash.
Ron says the new-style bottoms require no additional tractor horse-power. They sell for $250 (Canadian).
