I see a lot of use of the term "drag" for pull type implements.

Always irks me a little to see that!! I prefer using the pull type description. Drag is such a drag!!

Old style disks without wheels were called drag disks. Also harrows without wheels were sometimes call drags. We used to pull a "drag" behind the disk to level the dirt.

Here in NW ND a "drag" is a spike- or tine-tooth harrow, regardless of whether it has wheels or not.

The only thing I ever recall being called a "drag" is a this giant flat things with horizontal blades that scrapes and levels the ground... Hmmm...

Here a drag is a drag unless it has wheels then it's a wheel drag.

hardscrabble,

I grew up in north central ND and your description is exactly as I remember for drags.

I get the impression that today some use the term "drag" to mean non 3 point type implements. No one used 3 point implements in ND in the 40s and 50s when I was growing up so everything was pull type even the actual implement called a drag.

You are exactly why some use the term interchangably to designate between mounted equipment or non mounted and some will use that term to mean a pull type without wheels. I grew up in the area most machinery was the pull type, The 3 point for the Fergusom Implements was here but only the Ford And Ferguson tractors had it, Deere not yet.

Somebody needs more troubles/things to worry about! All this time, I thought it was a term to describe the way 'funny-boys', like Barney Frank might dress at night. Rolling Eyes

Is that type equipment only used by people dressed "in drag"?

I think the tractor does the pulling and the implement did the dragging along the ground.

But I could be wrong.
