    Default Bed Former for Two Wheeled Tractor

    I would like to make a bed former for my 2 wheeled tractor. I have 4 x 17in plough discs. Does any one have any suggestions?

    You could make a double toolbar and put the discs wider closer to the tractor and narrower closer to the operator to move the soil higher. But will you have enough traction to pull it. Some like a roller behind the discs to smooth the bed top down rather than a chain. Let us know how you do with this.

    More than 40 over the years. Ten at any one time. Mostly Ford and New Holland

    +1 on the roller idea. If mounted rigid to the frame (as opposed to floating) it would act as a depth control as well as provide a firm seed bed.

    Ended up getting a hiller/furrower. I did attempt to make one with discs though.

    What you show is similar to what I used on my 4010 (18 hp 4wd JD) that I used to make raised rows with. Here're some pictures. Before I got the 4010, I made raised rows with a rotary plow by Gravely (picture below, too).

    Do you have a disk for your tractor..?? Here is a pic of a hill made with my David Bradley disk, with the disk's turned inwards. It took 3 rounds (6 passes) to make this hill I planted peanuts on. I also planted Bok Choy, onions, and peas in similar hills. It is set fairly close to center, and can be made wider.

    I would like to take a roller and attach it behind the disk, to make a wider flat hill. like you are talking about. Will simply spread the disks further apart. And have in mind to make the roller adjustable, and fold up out of the way, so as to only roll on the last pass. Just haven't made up my mind what to make the roller out of.. I have plenty of 2" & 4" pipe. Thinking 4", as it will roll much easier, and more than likely stay on top of the loose dirt.
