Help ID'ing a Disk Harrow?

Postby cloverlyfarm » Tue Apr 15, 2014 9:31 am

Hello, I'm new to this form, having recently purchased a cub to work in our market garden. There seems to be a lot of knowledge and experience here, and I'm hoping someone can help solve a little mystery for me.

We found this old disk harrow at the top of our field:

It looks like it's an IHC model, but I haven't been able to find any information about it by searching online (the best I've managed is that it may be a 10-A). I'm fairly certain this is too big an implement to use with our cub, but it would be nice to know a bit more about it and if it's worth restoring.

Thanks in advance!

I can't ID the disc, but welcome to the forum.

Looks similar to a Cub-23 Disk:

Hmm, it looks like the same idea as the Cub-23, but there are six disks on each axle instead of four. The back part is also quite different, though it's hard to see in the pictures I posted because of all the bushes. If I can clear those off, I'll try to get better shots to post here.

Pull the disk harrow out of the weeds. Lubricate all pivot points, the adjustment latch, and bearings.

Try to pull the disk with the Cub. If more than the Cub can handle, drop off the rear set, gang. Cub should be able to handle the front gang, weighted.

Edit. I wouldn't worry about make and model. It appears to be complete. Even if a couple of disks or bearings are worn or broken, you should have plenty of spare parts in the rear gang.
I have an excuse. CRS.
