    Deere / Frontier disk harrows DH11/12/13

    I am looking at disks now that I plan on converting a one acre field [former corn/soy bean] into a garden/pasture/bee field.

    This is using a 3046r/cab.

    While on the JD site, I see pictures of the DH11 & DH13 disks, but the photo for the DH12 is a DH13.... I have the PDF from JD that lists dimensions/etc.

    I am gathering information on the differences between the 3 types and I am getting the impression that I would like 9" spacing [deeper cut if wanted]

    "plan A" is to go with notched front/rear smooth disks. Debating about scrapes [semi clay down here in monroe county, il] and the "de-furrower" [thinking if I cared much I would drag a 4x4 behind the thing.

    Under no circumstances am I using a hand tiller on an acre ;)

    Time/speed is no issue, multiple passes are fine as I am looking for things to do. (I have a cutter, and will be broadcast seeding hay/grass/clover mix as a cover crop initially while I debate the garden size)

    Cost of implements is a consideration, and I am thinking this is a once per year use item, with maybe 3 or 4 passes.

    Push come to shove, I will use the cutter and box blade the field to knock down the furrows and broadcast over that.

    Thoughts?

    Shane, please feel free to share your insight.

    Thanks!

    Don't know if it was me or another shane you were looking for bit here I am. You are dead on for the notched front/smooth rear. I'll get some numbers together so you can compare. Thanks

    Thanks!

    The thing that is confusing me is the deere factory site shows a photo of a 13 where it should be a 12.

    I can tell the differences are mostly weight, in order: 11, 12, 13

    So I wasn't sure what the frame of the 12 looked like.

    It doesn't appear that anyone is using these [from the lack of people replying].

    I am guessing most folks use a tiller, or larger tractors with road wheel 12' plus discs.

    I am also looking for someone who bales in my area since I don't want to start buying "hay gear" ;)
