What else do you want to know. Operation of the disks, tricks for smoothing the field better...Quote:

I think if you have a problem pulling it, lack of traction will occur before lack of HP.
Of course if you have a problem you can get by in a pinch by lowering the wheels and reducing depth of cut, especially in tough areas. I have one field where I had to do that for a few passes this year until I got it worked up well enough I could get it sunk in down to the spools. I use it only behind a L5740 Kubota with a bucket of gravel for ballast in front and cast wheel weights in back. Traction is still my limit in the rough ground. It is a 13 foot tandem with 18 inch blades ballasted with an extra 700 pounds of steel ballast.
