IMG_0594.JPG Today I went to dad's place and started discing up the existing fields.  Late last season dad got an offset disc.  He said it was advertised as an ATV disc.  It is pretty big for that.  Today I hooked it up to his Mahindra 2816 and got after a couple of fields.  It worked flawlessly and the Mahindra never missed a beat.  I started out in med second gear @ 1750 rpms.  I moved up to medium third gear @1750 rpms in the second field with no problem.  

 

Back to the third field tomorrow.

Dave did you use that after plowing or just to cut up stubble ?  I don't see any weights on it but the discs are notched , does that work better the solid ones ?   Boy I have a lot of questions lol

Al, no weights.  You just crank up the wheels and go to it.  There is an adjustment pin just on the tongue that is attached to the disc and tongue.  It digs in really good without weights.  It worked good to work up last years fields.  It even did a good job on some ground that had not been worked up in over 10 years.  

 

Dad wanted some of the lawn incorporated into one lot.  It cut in good, but didn't do much.  That will have to be plowed.

Here are some more pictures for you two.  Al, it's best cutting ability is because it is offset.  I don't thinks those discs do any better than plain edges.  

 

I took some better pictures of the disc for you Al.  I also took some of the results for the Murray man.
