Took some time today in the chilly morning to wheel harrow my garden. This harrow is a beast. It probably weighs 250-300 lbs by itself. I tried using my Wheel horse at first, but the front end is way too light so I couldn’t steer . I hooked up my Belen’s, locked the rear hub up, 3rd gear low range and off I go.

Your garden soil looks great after disking it  :thumbs:   I don't think I have enough weight on mine to do it that well

Do you plow before you disk, or just make multiple passes?

I'd have to plow before I touch it with the disk otherwise I'm just knocking down the weeds and not much else. If I put enough weight on to do anything I bend the snot out of either the drawbar or hitch of the disk. Or sit and spin.

I pull all the plants out first and then just run the disc up and down the length several times. It’s a heavy disc so it has no problem slicing up the weeds and leaves. I even cut through any pumpkins left out . In the spring Usually run my plow first because the ground is much harder.
