STUMP JUMP PLOUGH
Invented in 1876 by Richard and Clarence Smith of Kalkabury, on the Yorke Peninsula, stump jump
ploughs were made by W.T.Tape in a premises located on what is now the Willaston Hotel car park.
The stump jump plough is recognised as one of the most important agricultural inventions of the
19th century. It eliminated the time-consuming task of clearing land filled with stumps and stones and
allowed mallee land, previously thought to be too difficult to work, to be cultivated.
