The weight I don't know about. I have never seen anyone weight a plow. On the question of a coulter it is easy to plow without one but I never will. A cleaner job of plowing can be gotten by cutting stalks and the plowing of sod. If you don't want it turned under why plow? Farmers here today do not plow much prefering to simply chisel. A joiner improves the covering but must be set right. The best and cleanest job of plowing we did was with a Lantz coulter which I haven't seen in 50 years. They consisted of the normal coulter with what would look like a small disc plow mounted alongside of it in the normal place ahead of the moldboard. These did take some power to pull. I doubt it takes anymore power to pull a properly set coulter set a couple of inches deep in a heavy sod than it does to rip the sod apart with the moldboard. Vern

One reason, as has been mentioned is that at one time the point was worn down and it would not go down properly. The point may have been replaced and the weights never removed. I guarany, the weights would not have made it better if you had a hand lift. :lol: One thing they may have done though is make it get to depth quicker, because unless you make a cross the end starting furrow, the plow takes up to 4 feet to get to depth on it's own.
