So I'm in the market for a set of Frontier disc harrows, I know I could pull the 48" set just wondering if the 66" would be too much for a 1 series?
Exactly why I want the frontiers, four different adjustable angles. I’m thinking if they were adjusted aggressive it might be a challenge.DH1066?? I'd say yes.
JD lists the DH1066 for up to 28hp and the gangs are adjustable which is what you'd want. Mutton/JD shows a sub-compact pulling it when I looked up the DH1066.
I’m actually leaning that way too, for most of those reasons , I appreciate your input BigLike others have pointed out, the weight of a disc gang is further back from the pivot point of the rear axle than say a tiller would be. Example...a 600 lb tiller could be lifted because it is much closer to the tractor lift point than a long similar weighted disc gang. More leverage on the disc gang.
Another thing to consider is transportation of the disc gang. The 1025 is low to the ground and a long implement hanging out on uneven terrain could prove challenging. Also loading tractor with a disc gang attached onto a trailer would also be challenging if not impossible.
All that being said, I would go with the smaller set and take a few more passes if needed.
Yes I have BigJim, I haven't seen anyone pulling bigger than a 60" with a 1 series. I guess the Mutton site could be a bit misleading, picture shows a SCUT pulling them and it says UP lto 28 hp. My gut says I could pull them but it also says if it can pull the 66" it would pull the 48" even better.PJR832---how about a pic of these implements ur wanting to know about.
did u check u-tube to see if there are any video's of what ur wanting?:dunno:
