    Default Farmpro 48 disc v.s. Agri-fab single row disc

    I am going to buy a disc this week and wanting to know if anyone has use either of these type and what the outcome was. I have a Mitsu MT372 15hp Compact and want to pull my garden a couple times a year and rough up/smooth some bare spots in my yard for re-seeding. Any opionions would be appreciated as both of these come in at the $399 range.

    Would the 15hp 2 wheel drive have problems pulling the Farm Pro tandem disc? Should I stick with the Agri-fab single row?



    thanks,
    Bill

    I like the scaloped bladed one .. it will bit in virgin soil or with vegitation better.

    the other single row disc looks like a leveling / finish disc to me.

    got diffy lock? if so.. yoa might get thru.. if it gets sticky.. lift it some and make multiple passes.

    Can you say boat anchor??? My 372 would only pull my disk with one gang with the disk set in the first offset position would barely sctatch the ground and I needed to engage the diff lock constantly.If I put it in full offset it just didn't go anywhere.

    It will pull a fwd rotation tiller with no problem and do a fin job of tilling.
    Here is my disk with one gang that I tried while I was waiting on parts and a picture of the tiller I pull behind it.

    So you think the single row one from Agri-fab would work ok?

    Glad to talk to you again Wushaw!

    Getting close to putting my 372 back together from a short resto paint job.

    If it is light enough it might be ok but that is not a very good combination pulling a disk, you need some weight for the disk to bite into the ground or your just scratching the surface a little at a time and it will take forever to get any depth to turn the soil.
    I just know the turf tires and 2wd is not good for pulling a ground engaging implement with this little tractor.
