    Default I bought a disc plow without even knowing what it was.

    I bought a bought a Brown rotary cutter from a friend of mine as I was looking for a heavy duty cutter for my tractor. Well, he said he also had a disc plow that he'd sell me for cheap money. I didn't know what it was for, and he just wanted to get rid of it, so I figured why not

    I don't have any fields to plow or food plots to plant or anything that I typically think of a plow being used for. Mostly what I do is woods work. Is there anything that I can use this plow for in the woods? Would it be useful for loosening soil that I'm trying to level or grade? Can it break up small roots and sapling stumps that I've mowed over with my mower?

    I don't really know what to do with this thing but hoping I can use it for something, if nothing else it should make good ballast

    We used to use them back in the day...
    They work best if you have trashy or high weed areas to plow...

    This link may help:

    Agriculture TDP Disc Plows - Monroe Tufline

    According to the Tufline brochure I picked up at the Sunbelt Ag Expo in October, their smallest disc plow, with 2 X 22" blades and a weight of 665 pounds, requires a minimum of 40 tractor horsepower.

    According to the Tufline rep at the Ag Expo, disc plows are better than moldboard plows where the soil is full of roots and vines. Turning discs are less prone to hang up on underground obstructions than a moldboard plow design.

    Ken Sweet, an advertiser here from Sweet Tractors, used to have a plow like that for his avatar. He has responded to inquiries about it so your questions may be answered by using a search here on TBN.

    If you want to PM him about the plow his screen name is "sweettractors" (without the quote marks).

    To me, those plows look like huge dirt anchors that would require a lot of HP to run as they cut trenches in the soil. But since I've never used one my opinion has to be considered with that knowledge.

    We used to pull on just like that with an 8N Ford and later with an 861 Ford. They arent that hard to pull and I think easier than a 2 bottom plow. They are used mainly for rough ground with stumps, roots etc as they will just roll over them rather than tripping or shearing bolts and they do a good job of turning the soil over even at slow speed. They work really well in turning over winter cover crops like vetch as it doesnt hang up on the pans like it does on a plow.

    I had the same experience as Turbys 1700 and Gary Fowler in south Georgia in the 1950's. We pulled a two disk plow with a John Deere 420 (25 -30 hp?) in red clay. We thought they took a bit less horsepower than the equivalent bottom (moldboard) plow and that they scoured better in sticky soil. But we ultimately replaced them with common bottom plows (I am not sure why; I was a teenager at the time and not paying much attention).

    Thanks for the links and additional information. I have 45hp tractor but I'm concerned with my traction. My rears have seen better days I have a good amount of weight though so maybe I'll be okay. There are some areas that I want to loosen up to sift out some rocks and level off better, I'll give this a shot to see how it works. There isn't a whole lot of info on these so I assume they aren't too popular.

    I also will have a lot of smaller stumps so it's good to know that it won't catch on those the way a standard plow may. Maybe one of these days I'll have enough land cleared to actually have a field to plow
