Taylor Subsoil Plows
This implement solves the problem of storing wa
ter and breaking tip a hardpan.
It pulverizes the subsoil so as lo allow the sur
plus water on the surface to run deep down in th(j
soil and be preserved for dry summer use. Also
by talcing the surplaco water off tho surface tho
seed has a chance to get a good start before the dry
season sets iiT.
Thi.s4mplement is so constructed that it may be
ensily pulled in our soils by two horses.
