I was small talking with a customer on a delivery about my son's project & she said he could have the small discs in her planter. They turn free & are in decent shape for the patina they've developed. I am planning on shortening the hitch and adding a sleeve hitch, but was wondering what they really are. Any ideas on brand?

That is a Bolens disk from a walk behind. I think they called that a "quick hitch" - it just slides in the frame of the tractor and locks. good find!!

Wanted to rough this together, but will finish heat & bend mods after we find a sleeve-hitch for Ryan's tractor. That's the one it'll be on & I want to get the discs running level for him. The weights are a couple of 40# homemade wheel weights a friend of the family gave me. Made sure the bolt holes will work with regular wheel weights if the need ever arises.
