The single plough is similar to a traditional plough in that it has a single solid mouldboard tipped with a ploughshare, which rolls the soil up and off to the right hand side. In front of the mouldboard is a coulter, or knife, which cuts the soil first.

The digging depth is easily adjustable by rotating the Y-shaped lever to raise or lower the plough and at the end of each row the plough can be easily pivoted so that the operator is working in a single furrow.
