Why would you think that..??

We always used out WD-45 with Duals) and IH #37 disc (10'7") and never dropped out of 3rd gear..on worked ground, a 13' JD Harrow on the back..

You sure do not want to do that without Duals tho..

GEE, as to your wandering question, I always wondered why my disc was trying to pass me. LOL. NO, It stays RIGHT behind and keeps centered as long as you are discing in a straight line. When you come to a corner, yes the disc will heel over as much as the drawbar slides on the cross draw bar. On a curve I just lean a bit into whats already been disced, as I always 1/2 disced a field, as it was a single wing disc.

forgot to ask farmallb is that a wheel disc, or a drag type?

Not him but what he is talking about is just the front secton of a tandem disk and they were only ever made in a drag type. I think a few were made for very small tractor as mounted for a Farmall Cub or possibly a small 3 point hitch for an N series Ford. They developed for 2 horses that could not pull more but you had to half lap the disk to keep fron ridging but the outside round would always keep building up the fence row. That is why as soon as was practical they became obsolete and the tandem became popular. I guess out west where fields were measured in miles instead of feet as was in like Ohio and a lot of other eastern states that a field was 2 acres with fence on all sides. They would just keep building up that fence row as they would not bring any soil back in. Was nothing to se fence rows built up 2' with them. And the tractors he talks about using them with did not have any hydrolics of any kind so could not even have lifted a wheel disk.

thanks Leroy, that explains his half lapping and having it swing with the draw bar, wondering why you would put up a fence around just 2 acres? but I'm guessing that's what you could work in a day with a team and horse drawn implments? iv'e never seen that out west here even on farms that are over a hundred years old.

good evening RJKeith, looking at the top pic of your tandem disc the pipe swivel that raises and lowers your wheels is missing 3 grease nipples that screw into the top brackets that hold the pipe in place on the frame I think, I have the same set up on my mm 10ft. disc and your looks like a Krause design like mine.

When the farm was possibly only 20 acres and you had horses plus a cow and pigs to keep in around the pasture field and hay and oats and corn needed to feed the animals you only could have small plots to work and you had to rotate the crops to keep a grass stand. And you would not want the cows and horses in same pasture with the pigs. Were a lot of 20 acre farms with a 40 acre farm being a large one.
