    I wasnt complaining about the disc....just trying to report on my experience with a new piece. It just takes a while to figure out how to operate a new piece of equipment....as I havnt operated anything in the way of plows or discs for many, many years....and things have changed quite a bit....like 4WD.

    This disc is a pretty good piece and I dont know how I could have bought anything better for my situation. Seems it operates a little better with more use....or maybe its my imagination. Also....my diff-lock sure comes in handy...lol. Anyway I am quite satified with this disc. It does take a few passes....but I am getting very good penetration and soil mixing. On some of my food plots...this is the only way to "turn the soil"...you are not going to run a plow through some of the stuff I am discing (over tree stumps and rocks) ....at least not without a whole lot of other work first. For a small disc...this one is well built and has good adjustability.

    Wasn't meaning you was, was just saying that sometimes it takes a while to figure out the best way for you to use a tool for your application,sometimes it don't work out exactly like we figured in our head,so we gotta make adjustments.

    I pull that same disc with a JD 4720. Bought it when I had a 3320. I wish I had a floaring disc rather than a 3PH. Do you have the front and rear set at the same angles? (I.E. bolt holes #'s) I have issues leaving a furrow at the outside of the rear gangs. Any answers for this?

    Suncoast.....so far I have set the front and rear at the same angles and I am one hole back from the most aggressive setting....both front and rear. I have noticed a furrow at times....but I think it's more of my operating in some irregular plots (???...not sure about this) rather than the disc performance. We have followed the disc with a flexible tooth harrow (pulled by a four-wheeler)....which smooths any furrows remaining.

    I think your right about the performance of a pull type disc vs a 3 point mounted disc. I believe you would get better performance from the pull type. For me, the 3 point is mandatory as I could not turn around with a pull disc in many areas due to the trees.

    As with most "rules" there's a bit of flex as to what works and what doesn't, but as a general rule of thumb, I usually set the rear gangs to one position less aggressive than the front. And I always put a worn disc blade on the outside of the rear gangs....one that is a few inches smaller diameter than the rest. That reduces the dead furrow left behind by a bit.
    There are three kinds of men;
    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.
