The thing that made the "one way" work was the humongous
(large and heavy) tail wheel that followed the plow. Sometimes a
box of dirt was positioned over it so that there wasn't so much
steel and cost involved but got the desired result.
It had a way of overcoming inertia even on a 16' diagonal (as
shown) plow. Twas one of the favorite sod busting plows here in
the Blacklands of N. Texas years ago. Today they just use huge
tractors and very heavy tandem disc harrows running over the
field a couple of times.
I have used a single gang in a 3 point configuration, and you
cannot control the tractor. The force of the plow working
against the soil has a tremendous steering force that makes a
single gang useless for me.
On the offset you have the second set of blades to counter the
torque of the first set. Thing about them is that they work best
the longer they are....the farther back the second gang is from
the front....within reason. It's foot-pounds (of torque) you are
The front gang is fighting uncut soil so there is a lot of twisting
torque. The following gang is just putting dirt back so there is a
lot less torque. Therefore to equalize torque, as said either raise
the front gang to bite less thus offer less twisting torque, or get
a long boom and set the rear gang farther to the rear to get
some "feet" to go with the "pounds" of counter torque. Neighbor
has one that is quite large and overall it's probably twice as long
as wide for the reason stated.
My 2c and experience.
