I finally had time to get the attachments that came in my Farmall A package. I got a John Deere (not sure what model) 8' wide disk, also got a 3-pt scoop, 14" single bottom plow (was a 2 bottom draw bar type) cultivator, boom pole and draw bar. I took my Kubota to help load them all, I was able to hook onto the disk and just drive it right up the trailer.

 

The disk is slick, with the pull of a lever you can pull forward or backwards to angle the disk, they can also be straight so the disk can be towed without disking up the yard. I'm probably going to cut the disk up and make it 3-pt, I hate to since it's a neat old disk, but it is to bulky to get around with.

 

Sorry for the couple lousy pictures, it was dark.

Those old disk do a real good job.  You just have to get on to using them.  Grease the slide up good where the lever lock is and it will work a lot better.  Made for field work and not patch work for sure.

Will your tractor be able to pull that 14" plow though your soil ? Looks like it was reworked well

Thanks, I'm hoping it's going to be able to pull the plow, the PO pulled that plow with a old farmall A and it's 17hp gas and my Kubota is 20hp diesel.

Right now my top link is to short so the plow is at to much of a angle, I'm going to cut the top link in two and extend it. It looks like it was already cut in two and shortened.

It would be a shame to cut that old disk up.  You just don't see 'em too much anymore, especially one's that nice.  Your's to do as you wish though.  Looks like a good haul of implement.

What is the lift capacity of your Kubota 3 point? I bought a 6 1/2 ft 3 point disc from Tractor Supply for my Ford 1500 also a 20 hp.
The front end is a little light on my hill with 3 33lb weights on the front.
I suspect that JD disc is quite a bit heavier. As a kid we pulled one like that with a BF Avery Model A, growing sweetcorn it worked the Avery. I would hate to think what the law would say about pulling a disc like that down the shoulder of the road, crossing the highway and down a mile of gravel road like we did in 64.
I am sure you can pull it on the ground, but mounted may be a wheelie machine?

These implements should work with my Kubota, PO that I got all of this from said his the farmall A had a harder time pulling the plow so he adjusted the plow so it is cutting a little less then the 14". I think the old A couldn't pull the plow because it's using so much oil, I bet the old engine has no compression and is very weak.

Once I extend the top link I'm going to give the old plow a try, I bet the old kubota will pull it pretty good. I'm going to cut the disk in two and bring the two disk sections as close together as possible. Then I'm going to put my 3 pt mount a couple inches in front of the first disk section. I'm hoping my Kubota will be able to lift it, if not I have a Farmall H that I'm getting ready to track and then put on a 3-pt hitch and I will use it to pull the disk.

 

My Kubota is a L2000 (gray market) I can't find what the lift capacity is for the 3-pt, I'm thinking it's around 1250lbs at the tips of the 3-pt arms.

 

I've already been using the boom pole a lot, it's a handy little thing to have!.

I have have maxed out the 3-pt on the little Kubota, and I have never had the front end get light. The loader on it does a pretty good job holding it down.

Those discs really work very well without being 3 point. Easy to go from straight ahead to full cut. I like them as well or better than our 12' because they aren't so hard to get around in the smaller fields.
I would advise trying them as is, you'll be surprised.
Also, I wouldn't put them as a 3 point on my MF165, to much weight and very hard on stuff.
Maybe put a ram and lift tire system on it if you want an upgrade?

How was the disc supposed to be traveled when pulled by the draw bar ? Set them straight ?

Yes, transport is discs are straight. Makes little mess until you turn sharper than you should.
