This was my Christmas present from my parents, they found it at an equipment auction and decided I had to have it. Boy were they right! It doesnt have any kind of identification and I haven't been able to figure out who made it but it is a pleasure to pull. The disc angle is adjustable from the seat by lifting the lock lever and pull forward for more angle or backup to straighten them out....which is pretty handy if you get into a soft/wet spot and start to spin. Just back up straighten the discs and pull out of the bad spot, then reset the angle and continue on.
Anyone else have one of these or know who made them? Sorry the pictures aren't that great, I can take better ones tomorrow if it will help identifying it...

Nice discs and they do look like a lot of fun.
The action that you describe is common to the bigger JD discs of the 50-60 era. Wonder if one of the manufacturers decided to expand on the idea?

Any signs it was ever wider and been narrowed up? Regardless, love the discs !!
:thumbs: tell your parents they did good :thumbs:

From what I can see for the pics the hitch reminds me of an old JD tandum disc, but in a smaller version. Neat little disc :thumbs:

That's doing a nice job on the garden plot. I like your weights. Is that rebar you have for the handles? Great idea.

Me Too.  Neat idea.

The disc looks like it does a great job, I would say your parents did well.

That is a great looking disc. Reminds me of the horse drawn discs that I see used locally. By setting it straight, one can pull it to the garden without chewing up the lawn.

Thanks guys! I don't see any signs of it being shrunk down from full size....I'm pretty sure it was manufactured to be this size.

Yes that is small rebar for the handles, dad took hollow concrete blocks and filled them with cement and added a big handle that let's a guy use both hands to set them in place.

The bolens my oldest is on has a 12hp and with all 4 weights on it that tractor is working pretty hard to pull it, and thats with the disc set 1 notch from max angle. My girlfriends cub 100 that's in the background of one picture will pull it too but the clutch started slipping pretty bad so I think I better replace the clutch soon.

Yes shorty you are right, as long as you don't make any sharp turns it barely leaves a mark with the blades set straight.

Good looking GT's, good looking disc, and a great looking piece of land. I sure would like to find a set of disc like that... anything over 6 blades around here is 3 or 4 hundred.

I've been studying the first pic looking at how the linkages work. That would be fun to build one!
