The Old Spring-Tooth Harrow

One advantage or disadvantage of living in the desert is that old metal farm equipment stays around forever. This is a spring-tooth harrow or drag harrow. It was used to loosen the soil before planting and is largely outdated. It has been replaced by the chisel plow and field cultivator. You never know what you will find at the most unlikely places.
