Disc advice

Post by Bigfoot » Thu Dec 19, 2019 5:15 pm

What kind of disc is this. I would say a bog disc, but it has 2 rows. There are some contraptions on it, that I’m not sure why they are there to. Each disc is about 20” tall it’s a little over 6’ wide and looks heavy. I believe it would cut new ground, but I have doubts my tractor will even pull it (50 hp 4wd)

Offset disc made for basically plowing under sapplings, and heavy sod. Takes quite a mule to pull it, most often behind a dozer.

So, no way my little tractor will pull it?

Nope. Probably looking at a 100hp+ tractor for that one.

Modern 50hp your looking at a 6-8' finish disk comfortably. It will be a choir breaking out new ground
Well, if ranching's so hard, why do we do it?

Picture is a little misleading, I'd really like to have it. I just have my doubts my little tractor will pull it. It is very heavy. Not comparable at all to any other old pull type disc I've ever seen. Got an opinion on if I can pull it?

I would agree with the others. Looks like 11 inch spacing or so, might pull it the first pass and then it would have you dead in your tracks. Breaking discs take a lot of power. That's a little one, but a 10' breaking disc can be all you want with 150 hp.

I have a Taylor Way bog the front part just like that without the back section. I have pulled it breaking grass before with a 50 hp tractor in fairly level ground. If your tractor want pull it you can just unhook the back section and if you get a bigger tractor hook it back up. On the front part just lap half way over on each round and it will cut good. I have a molasses mill rollers on mine for extra weight. I bet it goes real cheap and looks to be in good shape as they are about bullet proof lol.......

Gonna be kinda hard to drop back half and just pull the front. The front when pulling it will run to one side and be trying to pass you as you pull it.

Am I missing some thing or does it not have any wheels? If so, that's definitely made for a dozer. You'll have to disk your way to the field and back. :D That explains why it's so cheap.

I’m stupid, I had thought of that. This stuff is setting at an auction here in town. It sells today. Spotted an old skool big disc, it’s just a front. Drag type, looks like what the generation above me would have pulled with an M Farmall. Told my son to bid on it. I’ll have to call him. Your idea is much better.

It’s purely a drag type.

When I looked at the photo I thought it was an offset disc. Really not enough detail in the photo to make a determination. You may be right.
