A late Best Thirty again. Looks like the carb has been changed out to an Ensign and I wonder how the engine is liking all of the dirt with only a short pipe and no air cleaner to breathe through

The air cleaner is behind that "L" shaped pipe.

I notice the odd pre cleaner on the RD4, who made it? as it looks a bit professional to me.

I grew up hearing that called a wheatland plow in central California. From the internet they where most common in the northern mid west in USA and Canadian Prairie and called a one way disc and commonly had a seed box. Then in spring till and plant in on pass. I think in Australia land there was another name yet too.

There where true disc plows here on the central coast because of the rock most farmed over. Grandpa got a 8 bottom to pull with his new Cat D 35. I never operated it. The disc's are not on a common axle as this picture shows. I want to say the disc would of been about 30 inches across mounted on a spindle. My family was not into pictures, so I have nothing to show.
