 What is a FLIP PLOW

Dear friends,

I'm not all that familiar with some of the farm implements used in other parts of the nation.

Here's one that I'm not familiar with, and I have no idea how it is used, or for what purpose. Can anyone explain? It's not that I need one......I don't believe......but I sure am curious.

The following pictures show a John Deere Flip Plow.

Many thanks.

Joel

 What is a FLIP PLOW

By design, a conventional plow will turn the soil over in one direction only. If you were to turn right around and head immedately back with the plow in the ground, the soil would be turned over in the opposite direction. You don't want that. It's important to lay all the soil over in the same direction, so that Mother Nature will leave you a nice level planting surface come spring.

But it costs extra time and burns extra fuel to return to where you started the previous furrow, because that's where you drop the plow again. With a conventional plow you have to - just so the soil currently under plow will be turned the same direction as that which you plowed in the last pass.

Enter the reversible plow. It enables you to turn right around and plow straight back in the other direction. It's a simple matter of turning around > hitting a hydraulic lever to drop the opposite set of plowshares in the ground > start plowing again. Even though the plowshares turn soil in the opposite direction from each other, if you use the right set in the right direction - all soil is turned in the SAME direction

Confused yet?

 What is a FLIP PLOW

It's kinda hard to make out exactly--but on the Gulf Coast I saw a two-bottom plow that had trip springs on it. I was told that it was for plowing where rocks could damage the plow, and to prevent it, the plow trips. Everyone I spoke to around the Coast never saw a boulder or even a rock let alone one big enough to do that!

GregG,

Stupid question............

What's wrong with going around and around the field, as one would do with any ordinary plow? Mayhe we're talking about very small acreages? Fill me in.

Joel

Every field is approached with respect to the lay of the land. But the end result is to have all the soil turned in the same direction. In some rectangular fields, farmers often split it in half; plowing from the outsides in. But it still involves a lot of driving and fuel to get to the opposite side of the field to plow back in the right direction (without a reversible plow).

But it sounds like you're comparing plowing to mowing. Because of what I said about wanting a nice level planting surface come spring, you don't want the tractor to be driving over already plowed ground

Greg is spot on with his explanation. They really gained popularity in the southeast back in the 70s, probably when fuel prices hit the roof.

EW, I can't remember anything like you describe. Do you have a picture of the plow? Is it like this one: http://www.chatstractors.com/051173_plow.htm
If so, that's way before my time!

Back in the olden days, Art you'll remember that Smile, when the molboard tripped you stopped and backed up to reset. Today they have the spring resets and hydraulic resets. Never slow down at all.

The flip plows work real well on side hills when it is desireable to always turn the soil over up the hill especially on the strip fields.

Mobil, yes it's similar to that but it's 3pt and had a little larger reset spring. Thanks Harvey.

Well, here in the East--- it is called a roll-over plow!!!And yes, you just do a sharp braking U-turn and go back in the same furrow in the opposite direction, of course after you rotate the plow!!
