Type of plow

I run a small country museum and have a plow that no one knows for sure what it is called. Those who have used it (we are in Tennessee) call it a "fowler," or is it spelled "fouler." No one seems to know the spelling. It has two narrow blades on each side that are adjustable. When used in one setting it throws dirt to the sides, forming rows that are mounded up, sort of like a raised bed. Later, it is used to run between the rows and scrape the ground lightly for cultivation purposes. Does anyone know the proper name and/or its source?

Dad figures you have a scuffle plow or scuffler...we used to have an old one that was horse drawn.. they used it to scuffle weeds between the rows and to hill up beans and taters..

I know what you are talking about, but don't know the proper name for it. That's the problem with plows. They got so many names. At lesat down here in the south. I posted a question on the implement alley at ytmag about a plow. No reply yet. You could try your luck over there.

Sounds like a middle buster or a lister to me.
