Picked this yesterday. Looks like a Brinly.

This morning, I took it apart and set it to max width. Had to go get new carriage mounting bolts. It will be close to taking Alice's tracks out. I plan to make a 3-point hitch for it. But which way would be best to pull it from?

 

This way?

Or this way?

Or would that matter? I know I will have to overlap to get the middle, unless I can find 2 more of these discs. Gonna check Brinly for those.

Nice find. Get another to make life easier. The one I had years ago was a single that went into the hitch on my old Wheelhorse. I didn't have the second one. It was not a satisfactory tool so I got a rear mount tiller. That worked much better. Good Luck, Rick

I just checked Brinly and I can get the add-on disc's for $15 each. If I put them in the middle, that would make it a 5-gang and keep me from overlapping. I think with this as a 3-point on Alice, I can sink it pretty good and tear up some ground when needed, as long as it is fairly soft stuff. Remember, I have down pressure on Alice! The tractor weight will sink it down.

Neither way is correct.  The lead gang is to throw the dirt out, second gang throws it back in.   I run mine with the center two blades touching each other but not binding throwing the dirt out.  That takes care of the center but if you have a wide wheel track, which I don't,  may be better to lap just enough to get the wheel track.

He only has the one set.
If he uses it either way, he'll have a Ridge or a valley
The Sears are the same. My suggestion is to set it up like pic 2 and overlap your ridge on the next pass.
Toss a little weight on her, don't just down pressure it. Could bend it.

Only one set and my full tread width on Alice is 45". I plan to get 2 more of the disks and fill the middle.

That's how I will do it, Alan. I have some weight I can make fit it. Been looking at how to make the hitch easily, got a plan for that going.

If you can find one more complete disc, they are made to hook together to have a double gang. Front one V'd forward, rear one V'd back. This type of set up does a real nice job. The new Brinly's will hook up with the old ones.

Well, I have looked it over all afternoon. My best shot is welding up a 3-point hitch to it! What the he**, it's mine. Just gotta leave room on the back brace for some weight to go in there!

If you find the other set, it's only a couple pieces of angle and a top link bracket away from being the Brinly 3 point.

This is how mine are setup also, the 1st set pushes the dirt out from the center and the 2nd set pulls it back into the center.

I find they work better with weight on the 1st set.

I use mine (tandem disc) on fall plowing and don't need any weight.  Hooked up to a sleeve hitch.  Blades need to be sharp to cut.  Propane1 has it set up right.  I understand Kenny only has one gang.  If it is pulled throwing the dirt in it is covering the center & any weeds, etc. in there is simply covered up, and not tore out by the roots.  Even adding the blades on the inside won't cut any weeds, etc. out of the center.  3 pt would be great for lifting but don't think I would want to use it for down pressure.

The back set just pulls the dirt back over, the front set need to dig in a bit, I find after a rain when the ground is softer or after plowing,  they work better.
