Toy Tractor Disc Harrow

Postby wesome » Wed Sep 04, 2019 7:15 am

I've found a very good deal on the disc pictured. I suspect it's one such as Briley sold/sells for small lawn tractors? I'm very confident the Cub will pull it fine but wonder if it's a worthwhile purchase at only 36 inches wide? Has anyone used one similar? I'd be using on a 1/2 acre garden. Thanks for all replies!

The Cub would pull it no problem if you can figure out a way to hitch it to the tractor. The problem will be lack of weight, you won't get much action/depth with it.

As Shane said, you might find it a bit underwhelming due to size/weight. I pull a 5' single gang behind my Cub with good results.

Pulled one similar with peg tooth harrow hitched to the rear of the disk harrow behind a Cub Cadet. Worked OK for a very small garden.

1/2 acre garden, I think you will find the pictured one on the small side. Other hand, if I don't have a disk harrow and the price was very reasonable, I would purchase it.
I have an excuse. CRS.

My thought is that you would have to offset it to disc the wheel track, so you would only be able to go one way. On the other hand, third gear would be no problem. If the price is right, I'd grab it though.

I'm having the same thoughts as you guys. At only 75 bucks I think it a good deal although I do wonder if I should keep my eyes open locally for something a tad more stout. Doubt it will see action before next spring.

Just a thought:

On my Cub Lo Boy, there is a plate attached to the draw bar, so the plate has 2 hitches on it. If I had a chance to purchase this, I would. I have used a roller and had it offset to 1 side of the plate. I would do the same with the small unit. Offset it to the side and run it. I would also look for another larger piece. This is way better than having nothing. Until you can find something in the price range you want to deal with, it is possible you can manage until you find another. If the attachments were set up right then you could pull a larger unit if you had a locking bar between the 2 to drag 8 or more feet at 1 time. I would think the Cub could pull that?

Thanks everyone. I have a small disc that came out a few years ago that you mount under a 4-wheeler with the weight of the machine pushing it into the ground. Worked fair for deer food plots. I might have to figure out a way to join them up as you suggested Ruralguy!

Hello wesome,

Just something I was thinking of. I mean if you can't afford anything but this, buy this. In time the options are that you will find other disks. At that time, you can take the different disks mounted on a bar. Then that bar could be mounted to a perpendicular bar as a " T ". You can run both or one or the other depending on your needs. You can also exchange the disks out for harrows or any other implements. It is just something I was thinking about as I was on here and other sites seeing various home-made options.

Thanks Ruralguy, I may go that route. I am pretty cheap, but if I found a decent one nearby, I'd grab it up. I've found a sickle mower (complete with pulley) in the next town over. Picking up today. Also found an immaculate 193 plow that I grabbed last week -only a 3 hour drive away. This disc may wait until I find a better option. I'm afraid my desire exceeds my patience. LOL

HAPPY HUNTING! At times, the desire exceeds the limit of spendable money.

It won't cover your tire tracks. I would buy it just to get those two harrow sets and put on a wider tool bar for laying up hills or as rolling cultivators. I would let the deer plot guys get it and look for something heavier and wider.

So the attached pic is a 5 footer and the guy wants $250. I don't believe it's an IH implement? but I could be wrong. Cub should drag it in my clay soil I believe. You guys think it's worth $250? I just picked up the sickle mower ($100) and the gent has a IH Cub manure spreader. He said he thought it was a Model 100 and will research it out. No idea of its value but maybe a future purchase!

There you go, that is more suited to your needs. If you bought the mower, you could offer a lower price. $250 is a little steep. Keep looking in the meanwhile. Getting a working manure spreader would be cool. Do your research...best wishes

edit add: check scrap yards, I have found 2 IH disc harrows for sale while poking around local scrap yards. some yards pull better stuff out of the piles and offer them for sale.

Great tip! (A Woods mower came with my Cub and the sickle mower was bought from the fellow with the manure spreader. The disc is a separate offer but only 30 minutes from home. It's amazing the implements that were offered for these tractors. Small wonder they were so popular. Now if I can find (and afford) a small farm wagon in the future, I'll have all the implements back on our homestead that my grandmother was forced to sell when my Papa died young. Well, except for the tobacco planter but odds are small for that and not something I'd likely use. Thanks for all the help and input guys!
