What type disc harrow to buy?

Recommended Posts

Daron1965

I have been looking at disc harrow attachments for my 312-8.

The local stores offer Brinly smooth disc, and Agri Fab notched disc. 

I plan on using it to disc up my already plowed plots,  and then run between rows of the larger plot. 

Is one better than the other?:confusion-scratchheadblue:

What do you use,  and how does it work?

Thank you.

Perhaps @PeacemakerJack @Achto @WHX21 and the other plow dogs would like to throw some information in here...

 

I don't do any ground engagement work but I do like seeing the information.

Both discs have similar construction so I guess the choice is down to the type of blades that you want. Here is a good read to help you decide.

I would think for the use that you described a smooth disc would be fine. Disc do a good job, they will require you to add some weight to them though. A double gang set up works better but greatly reduces you turning radius as you will not be able to pick it up at the end of the row.

If you can find the older Brinly ones the better. Most of the cheaper ones don't have  heavy steel in them and get banged up rather easily with concrete blocks bouncing around on them. I have a older Brinly and a newer one I pull in tandem and there is no comparison. The disc depends on the type of soil you have. In sand country here we use smooth.

 

Notched is better if you are in clay and do a better job with cornstalks. Run diagonal to plowed furrows if possible. Rough ride but better results.

 

King Cutter has a well built one but the price reflects it! I would see what TSC offers as well.

Made for atv use tho. I seldom use a horse any more as my size of plot it takes too long.... unless one wants extended seat time :auto-swerve:

Older Brinly, sometimes :wh:, or Cub Cadet branded as well.

Mike, that is just too pretty. You  should load that up and run out here in say, May. I will help you get all that nasty black paint off those blades :laughing-rolling:. A tandem disc definitely works better than a single gang. I like the notched blades in my clay ground here. I have a tandem three point Brinly disc that I made out of 2 discs. It goes on my D-250. I have to put 100lbs of front weights on it to keep the front end on the ground when it is lifted.
