Stump Jump Plough

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The Stump Jump Plough was invented by the Smith brothers in 1876.

South Australia, in particular can be proud of the pioneering brothers Richard and Clarence Smith in the invention, development and perfection of the Stump Jump Plough at Kalkabury, now Arthurton and the large scale manufacture in Ardrossan.

There are two such ploughs on display in Ardrossan. One on the cliff top at the end of the main street, First St, and one in the Ardrossan Museum on Fifth St. The Museum has a video on the plough for you to watch.
