I have a mf 520 and am looking for a set of clamp on furrow fillers. Other than buying new from the manufacturer, does anybody know of a after market product or have a used set?

Normally a furrow filler is an attachment of a smaller disk that clamps to the rear gangs on a tandem disk to help fill in what is called a water furrow.

pd,
if your disc mf520 has this much angle on the back gang, i can see why you need furrow fillers.

this disc would leave ditches on each side of the disc set like it is.

could you take a torch and cut the outside disc blade down about 3 to 4 inchs.
same as installing a smaller disc blade on the end of the rear gangs.

Just an idea, but why not find a mounted harrow for your disk? You will like the results much better anyway. Mike
