    Brian,
    These couplers are not stock. The BH had worn out one set of QDs, so I replaced with the style I have on my auger and grapple. If a hose breaks..........the remote has kicked to neutral, so not much should be lost.....right?

    Good luck and GOD bless !!
    Not with farm tags. But over 20,000 pound trailers with farm tags, you need Class A non CDL or CDL. Since either requires a written test and driving test, I decided to go for a CDL. I have passed my CDL written test and this Friday, I take the driving test.

    Brett,
    Thanks. I haul the loader on the neck of my 20 foot trailer. Only way it will fit with the BH.
    Putting the loader over the neck of the 29 footer would throw the CG way forward and overgross the truck drive axle. It is just 160 pounds overweight on the truck.....according to my registration. But according to the data plate on the door, truck gvw is 11,500 pounds.
    hugs, Brandi

    I drilled 3 new holes in the wheel transport lock beam. I now can disc shallow if needed. Seems the cylinder leaks internally and the lock will allow about 3-4 inch penetration. Hopefully this is all that is needed for bermuda grass seed near treesl...........................which is almost all of my property.

    I also installed all scrapers on front mainly for disc pan protection. It will take some time remaking all of these. I need to buy a gas ax and welder and this "after" project will need a lots of gas ax bending and shaping. I only have 11 wore out ones and need 22............11 left and 11 right hand.

    I gotcha. I registered my truck for 17k and trailer for 32k I think. It'll ever be anywhere near it but it was the same price. I think my truck is stickered for 12,200 on the jamb. It's always a numbers game. For what it's worth, if it was my set-up I'd run the bucket over the neck. Our camper is around 3k pin weight and we have literally thousands of miles with zero issues! Looking forward to seeing the setup soon!

    First, I haven't looked at these since 1974 but the type I was referring to actually uncouple the QDs even under pressure without breaking anything. You have to bleed off the equipment side to re-connect but it is better than breaking 2 hoses or breaking the QD's. I am sure there are newer types available now, but they used to have a simple version that you had a short section of hose from tractor to the QDs, then a double QD frame bolted around the two couplings and was attached to the tractor. When the hitch broke, the hydraulic hoses simply pulled the collar back on the QD allowing the male end to pop out.
    John Deere at the time had a patented special coupling with levers on the side that would pop loose when pulled and allowed unhooking and hooking up with the system under pressure. I would think that everyone would have this type now if you wanted them.

    I'll have to visit my local friendly JD dealer. He is only 6 miles from me.

    What can I tow behind the disc to help smooth out the dirt? I'm thinking a 6 or 8 inch very thick wall pipe about 10 foot long. Will this be enough to smooth it up? I would love to buy one of these Armstrong chain harrows.......http://www.armstrongag.com/Prodimage....pdf?#view=Fit But need to wait awhile for that purchase.
    hugs, Brandi

    How smooth or rough is your ground when you are done? How much smoothing needs to be done?

    You might try chaining a log or a railroad tie behind your disk. I recall seeing several threads where people had done that in these forums.
