Plough - Parts


The diagram (right) shows the basic parts of the modern plough:

  1. beam
  2. hitch (Brit: hake)
  3. vertical regulator
  4. coulter (knife coulter pictured, but disk coulter common)
  5. chisel (foreshare)
  6. share (mainshare)
  7. mouldboard

Other parts not shown or labelled include the frog (or frame), runner, landside, shin, trashboard, and stilts (handles).

On modern ploughs and some older ploughs, the mouldboard is separate from the share and runner, allowing these parts to be replaced without replacing the mouldboard. Abrasion eventually destroys all parts of a plough that come into contact with the soil.

Famous quotes containing the word parts:

    The Pacts and Covenants, by which the parts of this Body Politique were at first made, set together, and united, resemble that Fiat, or the Let us make man, pronounced by God in the Creation.
    Thomas Hobbes (1579–1688)

    The world is emblematic. Parts of speech are metaphors, because the whole of nature is a metaphor of the human mind.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Innocence of Life and great Ability were the distinguishing Parts of his Character; the latter, he had often observed, had led to the Destruction of the former, and used frequently to lament that Great and Good had not the same Signification.
