    Chad,
    My guess is then it would be about 16 discs. you would probably be able to pull it as long as you can control its depth to a couple of inches, Much deeper than 2" or 3" and i think you will struggle. Having said that 2" is fine for planting grass.
    Good luck, and welcome aboard TBN [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    I pull a 10' John deere disc with mine in low range and have no problems. If you're soil is wet (or even moist) make sure the disc scrapers are adjusted correctly before you begin.

    I pulled a heavy old ford 6' dual ganged disc with my ex Nh 1920.. that is 32hp 4x4.. etc. I had sandy/grassy soil so i was weighting it down to get it to bite.. sounds like yours will bit good. I had no problems whatsoever pulling.. turning needed brakes sometimes though.. front weight will help that. Aso.. many disc's can be adjusted for more or less agressive bite.

    Should be no problem. I pulled a 66" one (it has 16 16" discs) with my little TC29. I did have to use 4wd with the R4's, but traction was more a problem than power.
