    Repairing an old set of discs

    I got a pretty old set of discs last year that were my wife's grandfather's. They are quite rusted, but not rusted away. I've churned the garden up with them a handful of times, and smoothed out some lumpy ground so I can mow it instead of brush hog it. Today I went out and churned up the garden plot with them, to incorporate some old hay. Mostly as an excuse to get some seat time since it's been so wet here... In the last 5' of planned discing one of the discs fell off the shaft. I recovered all the parts, but the shaft's threads are rusting off, so the big axle nut won't stay securely attached any more. This is not the first axle nut to have this issue, some before I got it and some after. So far what has been done is drill a hole through the nut & axel then put a bolt or bent nail in as a pin to prevent the nut from rotating or sliding off. I can do that to this nut as well, but I'm curious about replacing a few parts (axle, bushings). I can't find anywhere where a manufacture/model number is visible on it. My questions are:

    1) Does anyone recognize what brand it is?
    2) Is it worth trying to buy a few replacement parts for old discs like this, or should you jerry rig it as long as possible, then replace it?
    3) How/where would you attempt to buy replacement/generic parts for something like this?

    Because it was my wife's grandfather's, and because I don't use it super heavy, maybe 3-4 times a year for a 75'x40' garden. It seems like repairing it is the better option (if possible, at reasonable expense).

    check an Agri Supply store near you (Petersburg) the seem to have a lot of disc parts , maybe compare parts that came off to ones on their website
    good luck , I have one that's 50 rears old and still works fine, its well worth repairing

    Agri Supply is your friend. They will have new disc, new axles, new nuts, new bearings...….. Plus they are close to you. Looks heavy duty. To replace will probably cost more than the few replacement parts you might need.

    Here is a link to TSC

    Parts for disc

    Search Results for disc at Tractor Supply Co.

    So you'll have to do some browsing, if you know disc wheel/cutter size or unit size might help

    J3 Driver was restoring a disc for his sons cub. Maybe he’ll chime in. It’s worth repairing, what you want to spend is up you.

    Sandblast and repaint if you wanted. I’d atleast start at replacing all the hardware and bearings. If can punch out the bearings if they have them? Then take one to a bearing shop.

    If it’s old and “in the family” and will work well then put some time and effort into it

    I think it almost looks like a JD KBA Disk.

    Not sure though can you find any numbers on it anywhere of markings.

    I wouldn’t trash it. It looks pretty decent yet. And it works.

    I did a search for kba disk and thus came up. Looks a lot alike.


    If you can find a tag or something I’ll be able to help more.
