I need to make a final decision SOON, please help me to make the right choices. Please bare with me, I will try to do my best to list my choices. My tractor will be a New Holland 40 horse mfd, with loader.
My dealer is pushing this "light duty disk" made by Walco Widouglas featuring an adjustable twist frame with a cast iron bearing design. 20 blades x 18" 575lbs
I am more inclined to pick a heavy duty box frame
King Kutter
What is the difference on the KK disks that start with the letters cbf or nbf ?
My choices are:
5 1/2' 16x18" 760lbs
6 1/2' 20x18" 790lbs
7 1/2' 24x18" 860lbs
Now for the others
KK box blade which would I be able to handle and get the
best performance from.
72" 500lbs 6 shanks
66" 435lbs 5 shanks
60" 415lbs 5 shanks
48" 350lbs 4 shanks
what is a sub soiler used for?
middle buster?
What do you think of the "c" tine one row cultivator from KK?
I know it is alot so if you dont want to answer all the questions I understand, but please do your best on which ever you can.
Thanks you very very much.

thanks dk
Why would my Boomer book Not recomend a 60" rotary cutter or smaller but recomend a 72" and a few larger? I keep hearing how a 6 footer will bog down under the 40hp
but the Manufacturer says differently. Is it sorta the Manufacturers IDEAL CONDITION test? or are they really just dreaming it up on paper?

I like to hear that.
Does anyone think the weight of the heavy duty disk be a problem. At 24" behind the tractor it is supposed to lift 2300+ pounds. Will a 700 pound impliment be a problem and do you think it will have the guts to pull it or should I down size on the size of the disk?

7 1/2' disks behind a TC40 would be no problem.
If you need to trailer the tractor and discs would be the only issue on that size discs.

Brokenarrow; Don't let the dealer talk you into something you'll regret later. I've been a farmer for over 40 yrs. and have owned many disks. first the tractor will lift any of the disks without any problem, but of all the disks you mention the 5.5 footer is the heaviest per blade, 47 lbs. per blade, without prior deep tillage you'll be disapointed. I've never owned a light 3pt. disk, but most farm duty disks are well over 100 lbs per blade. Try to find someone who owns one similar to what the dealer is trying to sell you, get their opinion or better yet go see it work. True subsoilers work the soil down to 15 to 20 inches below the surface to break up compaction, I really doubt that 40 hp. would pull even a single shank especially if you're in a rocky field. I don't know much about middlebusters, I think they were much more popular in the deep south, I've really never saw one around here. Hope this helps.
