I used this disk at the Dundas Plowing Match last year here in PEI. Had a lot of fun. The area I disked was the practice area for the antique farm tractors before the real plowing took place. Disks did a nice job. Noel 

 

I had the disks on the LGT 100 open side tractor with weight on the disks.

Disc, then plow???  Ummm! Isn't that backwards?  Doesn't that make the plowing able to be done even with "Wimpy" sizes then? 

Just kidding here, have no idea of plowing and haven't done it. Just wanted to be included in conversation cause I'm bored! :smilewink:

Is that a factory sleeve hitch for each tractor?
Those are pretty rare!
Can you lift that disc with the tractor? Or is it just a drag harrow?

No problem to lift with the hydraulics and with the manual lift on the LGT 100 with manual lift, just extra arm power. Noel.

The sleeve hitch disks were not designed to be lifted.  I guess maybe some people have done it, but it's not recommended.

Curious - if the disks aren't lifted by the sleeve hitch, how are they transported?
