    Check to make sure the bolts in the center of the depth band are not too long and/or too tight. If too long, they'llbottom against the axle stub and prevent the disc from turning. They don't need to be excessively tight anyway. I'd suggest backing them off a turn or two and see what happens. BTDT many times.

    Disc opener should turn freely.

    1.) The ones that learn by reading
    2.) The few who learn by observation
    3.) The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.
