    Default 3 pt. disc harrows. Price and quality?

    Looking at them and would kind of like a set of 3 pt. disc harrows but havent studied yet whats good or bad and how much. I found these at a place. Name Brand Tufline and a 6' 4" set was $1400. Pro's and Cons? I think I would like to have an 8 footer and was hoping to pay a little less hehe. I want heavy duty not light weight junk.

    The one in my Orscheln catalog is a 6 1/2' one for $499. It's King Kutter. Prices in this catalog seem about 10% low compared to KK stuff at the local TSC store here. Don't know about the quality. Maybe others can comment.

    All Monroe-Tufline equipment that I've seen appeared to be well designed and built for the real world, but generally a little pricey compared to KK, etc. May be another instance of you get what you pay for.
    When I was looking for a disk I looked at the tufline but found an old used one that I bought.

    Like Glenn said, the Monroe Tufline stuff I've seen was built for heavy duty use. The only thing I've had of theirs was a 4' box blade, but it was indestructible. Prices seem a little high, but it ought to last a lifetime.

    I was just at tufline site. They have several models. I dont know what model I saw and place was closed. will find out tomorrow. They have like a #660 lb one and a #780lb one and a #968lb one and the best was #1200lbs all the same width but different thickness steel and built better. basically you can get economy or tuff built! im ancious to see what they had for $1400. horsepower ratings also vary from like a 25 horse to a 30 to a 35 to 50 or more. They had several widths to pick from but the one I saw was 6' 4" so i looked at those on the website. I would like a little wider but just starting to think about things at this point. Not sure which tractor Im gonna use it with either. tufline at this point looks like a good company for these 3pt. disc harrows.

    Leinbach also makes a stout disc harrow using 3"x3" tubing for the frame. They make a 8' unit.

    TuffLine makes a good one. If you happen on to one, Bush Hog made a good one for years. Massey Ferguson made the BEST WORKING 3 point disc ever (IMHO) It employed design over brute force. There are still a few around on the used market. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    I'm just not much of a fan of 3-point disc's anymore. I've had several. They're convenient, but just don't perform like a good wheel disc. I've got a mid-70's IH #350, 8'-6" model now. I'm thrilled with what it'll do as compared to the 8' 3-pointer I just sold. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    this particular model is a pretty good one. Here is cut and paste.


    Tufline's "TH" Series tandem discs offer quality and strength at affordable pricing. This combination makes Tufline number one with under 55 horsepower discs in today's market.
    The "TH" Series are available in 6'4", 6'8", or 8' cutting widths with blade spacing options of 7 1/2", for seed-bed work, or 9" for cutting with light ground cover. Heat treated 18", 20" or 22" notched disc blades are standard with solid blades available as an option. Adjustable blade scrapers are also available for heavy soils or stubble buildup when needed.
    Whether garden preparation, vineyard discing, or game plot ground work is needed, put a Tufline to work for you!
    FRAME: 3" Square steel tubing with lever adjust gang cutting angles. Category 1-3 Point hitch. Fixed frame.
    GANGS: 1 1/8" Square steel axles. 7 1/2", 9" or combination blade spacing. 18" or 20" or 22" notched blades. Sealed ball bearings mounted in pillow block or flange housing.
    OPTIONS: Adjustable blade scrapers. Plain Disc Blades. Screw adjustable control.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    SERIES TH - MODELS AVAILABLE
    MODEL BLADES SPACING WIDTH OF CUT WEIGHT
    TH72020 20-20" 7" 6' 8" 948#


    Anyway I think this has the flange housing and not pillow block and im not sure which one is better but it also is a combination one with 7-1/2" and 9" spacing with notched on front and solid on back and has the adjustable blade scraper kit added on. It list for $1650 and $350 extra for the scrapers so Its a $2000 rig he is selling for $1450. It will weigh in at 1000 lbs. Its a pretty tough one they have 3 series that are lighter and only one heavier. I guess it dont get much better for a 3 pt. hitch model. Oh yeah its 6' 8" and not 6' 4" so i think the width will do.
