Moldboard

Picked this up yesterday for $50. I was surprised when I went to pick it up. Unlike most things on CL, this actually looks a lot cleaner than it does in the pic.

I'd been looking for one for quite some time, but they don't pop up on CL that often near me. This one should be a good replacement for the old David Bradley walk behind plow that I've been using.

I read somewhere that "mold" is the Old German word for soil. I looked "mold" up in Websters, and one of the definitions given is "crumbling soft friable earth suited to plant growth: soil; esp: soil rich in humus."
