You should find that the berms that you are now getting will pretty much go away.

    I'll try that sometime. The second pass was on the right side of what has been disked with right hand turns. Problem was..........it was triangle shaped. I sure hope all the little berms go away. At least the field's layout dictates the hay equipment go the same directions as I did.

    I am going to pivot my front and rear gang to less of a angle by one bolt hole. Trouble is the gang angles are held in place with 1 inch "J" bolts and 1 inch carriage bolts. I would like to have new bolts before trying to loosen them, but Amco does not stock any J bolts now. I'm waiting to hear if they know of any dealers that may have some. I want to lessen the gang angles also to lessen the hp requirement, to give me more gears I could pull with. I'd be smiling big time if I could pull the disc at 2,000 rpm in 6th gear!
    hugs, Brandi

    What ground speed would that be?
    It might be quite dangerous on an unknown field with unknown rocks, holes, and other hazards?

    Ron,
    I'm guessing 6th gear would be about 6-7 mph. Uh...I don't know about up there, but down here established hay pastures don't have rocks because we don't have rocks here. Bare in mind this field had me do 4 passes. So once I pulled the first pass...in 4th and 5th gear, I pretty well knew the lay of the land. But you might wanna call the safety police on me anyway, as I pulled the 10 foot drag harrow in 10th gear at 1500 rpm. That's 10th out of 12 gears. 12th gear would be about 27 miles per hour.

    Brandi, you should take a look at either the chart on your fender or your owners manual. I know for the 7520s 12th gear @ 2300rpm is 20mph.

    I know that I often use 4th gear instead 6th because it is faster by 1/2mph. When I am working on flatter terraine I run 3rd & 4th. On the hills I run 5th, 6th and sometimes even 7th.

    Brian,
    I heard or read somewhere I can get 27mph at full throttle. But, I found in the operator's manual 12th gear at 2200 rpm gives me 20.45 mph.

    I kept thinking of the gears in sequential order, but they are not. When I said I was pulling in 6th gear, I was actually in medium range 2nd gear. I have noticed before different gears seem to go slower than a higher gear in a lower range. So when I was pulling and wanted to upshift out of mid range 2nd gear, I should have went to 4th gear low range for a slight speed increase. Me trying to upshift to mid range 3rd gear (7th) really was too much.

    Mid range 2nd gear (6th) is 4.78 mph
    Low range 4th gear (4th) is 5.30 mph
    Mid range 3rd gear (7th) is 6.97 mph

    So really I should have been upshifting from 6th to 4th instead of sequentially from 6th to 7th.
    I checked and I have a gear/mph range chart on the fender, but it is so low, it can't be read while seated. If I did a lot of ground engagement work, I would get another chart and stick it on top of the fender to see at a glance.

    So I was pulling the drag harrow at about 9.92 mph.
    hugs, Brandi

    You were flying at nearly 10 MPH. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I always thought most farm equip was designed to run at 5 or so MPH.

    I pull my wing fold disk at 7 mph if the ground is smooth enough. My finishing harrow, again if its smooth enough, at 11.

    Sisdogs,
    I was chasing the sun setting. I forgot to add that I was running 1500 rpm pulling the drag harrow, so I am guessing around 7.5 mph or so. Also, the drag harrow was smooth side down and was I was making a pass with it to just help smooth and knock down the ridges.
    hugs, Brandi
