I agree too about what OB was saying & others. These things can get a guys head spinning. I probably won't be using them for awhile now that I already tilled the garden. I want to take them apart to clean them up, prime, paint & grease the axles. I'm impressed with the disc not much wear sat all on them & the axles look left alone & maintained. Thanks everyone for your input I really appreciate it. This is what makes GTtalk such a great place to be apart of.

I bought mine, one slightly used for $100, one never used for $100, but had to drive a hundred miles for it. I grew up on a farm so I knew which way to turn them. :D

I have a set of tamden disks. I leave mine losse in the middle so they will have some float. You will not have any up and down movement, or side to side, between the two if they are solid, so one or the other disk may not be making much ground contact if they have no float. Think of a set a reel mowers, they have float so they will cut uneven landscapes. Same thing applies to disks, in my mind..

I just use a pin between mine and I put weights on both. When I lift mine, the rear unit sags quite a bit, but the tear up some dirt!

IIRC, the brinly factory 3 point dual disc is mounted rigid. You essentially just made one. Other than turning your discs the correct way, lots of weight will be your friend. What would really help is using it behind a machine with down pressure also.

Guys I don't want to drag this topic on & on but the curiosity is killing me. I reversed the rear tandem disc as mentioned. I locked the two tandems as one using two bolts in the middle of the pivot area. I tried it out & was very happy with it this way. The disc obviously worked a lot better mounted the right way. Wanting to try all options I took one of the bolts out & loosened the other to allow it to pivot & off I went...again. I will admit it seemed to work better this way allowing as mentioned the rear unit to float better as Noel mentioned. I don't like towing versus using a hitch with a lift. This Sears SS15 is a manual lift but some have added an electric lift...maybe later. I want to get a hitch made up for one of the other hydraulics I have. Thanks so much again for your interest...now next will be the painting but later.

Does your 990 have a 3 point? Seems to me it would be the ideal candidate for handling the disc. Especially since the disc was modified to mount on a 3 point.

Brinly stated that the sleeve hitch tandem disc was not designed to be lifted.

 

I don't remember where I saw it, but will look around to fine where they stated that,

It hasn't hurt it yet, but I'll keep an eye on it.

This is my set up, it's lifted by the sleeve hitch. I only put weight on the front disks.

No Eric I don't have a hitch for the 990 yet. I have the metal & drawings of the original but just haven't had the time to make it yet. I plan on my 990  being my work horse. Thanks
