What are you 1025 guys using to make rows for planting corn? I used my center buster yesterday but the rows are pretty close because the tractor isn't wide enough. It will have to work but I know there's a better way to make rows with a little tractor!

This is what I used on the 4010 to make raised rows, 20 of them in 75 ft. On the 4010, I used the turning brakes and ran the tractor right around 180 degrees to do the next row after raising 3ph at end.

Can get a tool bar similar to this called a keulavator from AgriSupply. I bought the discs at Agri Supply. They also have the clamps for attaching them to the keulavator.

I do the first row then pick a distance to keep the tires away from that row but my tractor is wider. This year I used a rod across the front of the tractor with a 90 bend out 36" from the center of the tractor. I just lined that up with the row I completed and it was easy to keep the spacing correct within an inch or so.

You should plant your corn on 30” or 36” row spacing. At the end of your row turn around and run your left tire back down the previous left tire track (or right if you’re working that direction). You shouldn’t have any troubles making 30” or 36” row spacing.

I'd seen a plow like this at rural king last year but can't find them on their web site now. I think this is what I'm looking for. Each row would be the width of the tractor apart. Now just to find one again! Whats the actual name of this type of plow?

Thanks guys, now I'm finding them with the right name.
Just keep in mind that you typically do not "make" rows for sowing corn seed. The planter opens up a small furrow, the seed drops in and the closing/packing wheel covers it back up. Corn seed is normally on planted about 2" deep, so if you are making rows to plant by hand just keep that in mind.

Here's the web site: Search Results | Agri Supply Looks as though the bottom lift pins are not provided. Enlarge the picture, and you'll see the oles for them.

Was remembering the keulavator as more like the old JD M tool bar that I mounted my discs to. Got the discs (think 20 inch ones) off this AgriSupply site. They've attachment hardware, too. I had to have mine special made by a friend who worked part time in a shop. He's also the friend who gave me the old JD M tool bar. I came up with the design to convert it to 3ph.
