Lister

To some, a plow with two moldboards arranged so that, as a furrow is plowed, the dirt is thrown half to the right and half to the left. To others, a lister was the plow just described combined with a planter. Those who used the latter terminology often referred to the first plow as a Middlebreaker, Middlebuster, or Ridge buster. However, the term Ridge buster was also sometimes used instead of Go-devil.
