A M farmall will pull a 10' tandem just fine.

Plowed ground or corn stalks? In plowed ground,you're gonna work the snot out of anything under 60-65 horse.

So many variables impossible to give a figure. Make and model of disk? Type of ground? Spring non worked or fall tillage? All make a big difference.

30hp will pull a small finishing disk in fall cornstalks or bean stubble.

Need over 50 to pull it in sping heavily angled in soft fresh dirt. Might get by with less if you harrow first or otherwise take an easier bite, might
need much more hp if it's a bigger bladed farther spaced heavy disk.....

7 inch spacing, worn down less then 16 inch blades pull pretty easy, where as 9 or more inch spacing, 22 inch blades are gonna pull real hard
as they work heavy.....

lets say worse case scenario. Fall virgin ground. No cornstalk. It’s a John Deere 10ft offset disk. Blades are not serrated.

Offset disks pull really hard. We used a neighbor's a few times, was a 10' Miller and it would work the snot out of our Oliver 1855. Used as primary tillage.

Not going to pull that disc with an M. Maybe pull it around the yard. 100-120 hp with duals.

That is a "heavy" primary tillage disc ; probable had 20 + inch blades when new , look to be wore down quit a bit.. smaller blades pull harder... unless you wish to let it down only half way ,and carry it at half depth on wheels... , I wouldn't hook on to it with less then 100 horse tractor.. I don't think it's a Deere disc, all Deere disc's of that style / age were made it JD-Killefer plant Ca. it doesn't look like the model HD wheel disc..

I've got an 8ft offset and pull it with a 4020 John
Deere (about 95hp). A good combination.

I don't believe it is a Bush Hog or a Miller either. I don't know exactly what make it is or how heavy it would be. Only has single wheels and not duals. Heavier ones had 4 tires instead of 2. I have a Taylor-Way disc. It is just a 10' tandem disc and that has 4 tires. It is pretty heavy. Friend I bought it from used to pull it with a JD 4440.

Pulled a 12' Bush Hog offset with my turboed 856 and it went fine. Also use it on the Taylor-Way now.
