    My17 2032r disc harrow size

    Looking to purchase a disc harrow but don't know what size my 2032r can handle. I'm assuming something in the 5' and 15-20 disc's. I'm relying on your guy's/gal's (that's right) vast knowledge. Also any type of brand I should be leaning towards or away from.

    Thanks for your help and input. BTW main use will be for food plots.

    I guess I have always heard disc harrow in reference to the implement that has rows of disc at alternating angles. Some can be smooth and some notched.

    My main concern is that I will go too large and won't be able to pull it.

    You should not have a problem with a 5 or 6’. I see plenty of people pulling 4’ ones behind 4 wheelers. I would probably stay towards the 5 as disks like to float if there is a lot of weeds or trash and if you weight it the weight would be focused on a smaller footprint. The nice thing about a disk is you can easily make multiple passes until you get the finish you desire.

    Hope this helps.

    Cover the wheel tracks

    I would make sure the disk is a little wider than the wheel tracks. It doesn't matter on the first pass but once you are on tilled ground you want to leave a smooth surface. My cousin pulls a 6' with his JD790 if that helps. He says he doesn't have any issues pulling that. I've not put one behind my 790 so can't help much. Like another poster, my experience with disks was all with larger units except way, way back pulling a 6' disk (pull type, no gauge wheels) behind a AC WD-45 in a garden. It wasn't much of a disk and I was a kid so all I remember was that it pulled it.

    Like Treefarmer said, go with one that will cover your tracks. There isn't much to a disc and all you're doing is pulling it. I have a 4' 16 blade disc and have to add weight to it so it will do it's job. My 1026 pulls it like it's not even there. I could pull a 5' 20 blade disc no problem.

    Something like the JD DH1066 should be about perfect. It is 5'6" wide, notched blades and weighs 445 lbs and easily adjustable gang angles. I had one of these when I had my 3320 tractor (33 hp), and it pulled it with ease. Your 2032r will have no trouble with it, but I wouldn't go any bigger.

    Sorry, I missed your original post or I would have responded. I have a 2025 R (old model) that I use exclusively for maintenance of my hunting property. Iíve used both discs and a tiller to prepare my food plots and ultimately decided to purchase my own (vs borrowing) a 60Ē tiller. The reason I chose to go with the tiller instead of buying my own disc was that I found in order for the disc to be effective it must be very heavy and have the ability to adjust both sets of gangs. Plus, you need to make multiple passes (in my soil) to prepare a good seed bed.

    66Ē has discs are what I used and they were of the cheaper angle iron type weighing around 500 lbs. When I looked at going to a true heavy duty disc as I mentioned above, the price more than doubled, and was actually more than my tiller.

    So for me I can till in a single pass (so time is about the same) and for less money plus Iím not trying to keep MANY bearings from falling apart. Thatís something I had to always watch on the cheap discs. These are just my thoughts based on my own experiences, they are not meant to say one is good or the other is bad. Good luck with whatever you get and please post a ďreviewĒ of whatever you end up with as Iím always looking to learn from others.
    Good luck hunting in 2018!
