Went to the local Tractor Show this weekend. A friend had brought something to sell. He showed me and I bought it before he could get it unloaded. It's a 40" disc set for a Sears. Model # 917.252111, it sat somewhere damp as there is a couple of small rough spots on 2 or 3 of the discs... but that will wear off in time.

Happy guy here, I got a new toy for next spring :thumbs:

Nice find. The little I have used the dics I bought earlier this year I have found it takes a lot of weight for it work.

Those are very cool! ...and for once, you wont have to modify them to work with your tractor!

Nice find!

Good fine , that one has 10 disc's. Mine and most that I've seen only had 8 !


I believe my David Bradley disc's are 8 disk.

Nice find. The little I have used the dics I bought earlier this year I have found it takes a lot of weight for it work.


I use 120lbs worth of square exercise machine weights.
