    Disc harrow for 1025r

    Historically always experienced with larger agri row crop tractors. Just recently purchased new from dealer 2015 filb and so far pleased.
    Looking at purchasing a dirt dog disc, wondering if anyone could help with 1025r capability. Will it adequately handle a 5' disc or should I go with a 4'?
    The 5' is approx 480lb. Hoping someone has utilized their 1025 or 26 with this application.

    Oh by the way. From Missouri and new to the forum.
    Dirt is loamy clay, discing garden, food plot area and yard seeding. Replacing 7' disc I was using with a 40hp. Down sized to accommodate tighter space and landscape needs.
    Never really ran a rig this small and don't want to purchase more than it can handle.
    You know the manly mistake.

    What discs have you looked at? I have used 6' and 7' discs that were light and overall cheap that my tractor drug around well enough I felt a touch of pride in my tractor. Now I have a 7' Tufline disc that my grandfather purchased in 1966 to go behind his new at the time Massey Ferguson 135 and although my tractor handles it, it is all the disc the 3520 wants. Especially if I shorten the top link and have the gangs angled to cut aggressively. I asked a salesman once while looking at several used discs they had on the lot "where do I measure a disc to get the width" and his reply was "across the front if someone wants a 5' disc, across the back if they are wanting a 6'". Although he was being humorous, the point I got from him was there isn't all that much difference between the two. I believe it's going to be the specific disc your looking at that will make the difference. If your looking at a heavy built disc with the frame and gangs constructed with tube and so forth then maybe a 4' would suit you best. If your looking at a lighter disc constructed with angle iron, I would consider a 5'.


    Read your op again and saw I overlooked the disc you specified. I went to the dirt dog site for the first time to check out their products and man, their discs appear to be rather nice.

    Thanks. Yes the dirt dog is very well made and the lower 3pt is slung down to 16" to accommodate the scut.

    By the way has anyone pulled a one bottom plow with a 1 series jd?
    I have used a pto tiller on my garden before and yes it fluffs it up nicely. How ever I prefer to stay with the low till for the health of my soil and turn only every 3 or 4 years.

    This is handled very easily with my 1026. Bought this when I had a 425 JD. If I was to buy one now and didn't have this I would go with the 5' kind. It will handle it easy in my opinion. As for a turn plow, I've seen a guy use a 14" 1 bottom plow and it worked with his 1025 but if I was to buy one I'd get a 12" 1 bottom or a 10" 2 bottom. It might handle a 12" 2 bottom but I don't know. I been wanting to buy a plow but haven't got my finance dept. head talked into it yet. To be safe for me so I wouldn't have to buy twice I would get a 12" 1 bottom plow. Keep us in the know on what you get and how it works out for you as I for one would like to know how it works for you on whatever you end up with.

    Based on YouTube videos I have watched of 1 series tractors plowing, I think Levi is spot on with a 12" plow being ideal.
