 notched or smooth disk

I have the option of buying one of 2 disks. I am planning on buying a Kingkutter box disk 6 1/2 foot wide. Should I go with the notched blades on all of the disk, or should I buy the disk with the notched blades only on half and smooth on the rest. For the most part I will need as aggressive a disk as possible since I dont plan to till very often and much of the time I will be "disking in" last years crop residue and sometimes disking in "green" crop. Any advantages or disadvantages between the 2?

 notched or smooth disk

The notched disks tend to turn and cut more in sod, stubble and other untilled soil.

The smooth disks work good in well tilled soil but will clog up and not want to turn in sod and stubble.

Moisture of the soil also plays a large part in the equasion.

Hope this helps

Yes, I am after as agressive a disk as I can get since the weight will only be around 43# per cutting blade. I believe it has 20 and it is 860#. So you think I should be looking at the disk that has all 20 blades that are notched? Thanks
Tom

Notched discs should not be used on stoney ground as they will bend easier then solid. If there is an upgrade for a larger diameter and thichness go for it as the blades will wear longer!

I see there is a 20" dia. blade that is 3.5mm thick. That would be an upgrade from the 18" dia. blade that is 3 mil. thick. Huge price difference though. $232 bucks more. When you say stoney ground? do you mean ground that has not been picked yet. How about if I had the field for the most part picked down to around 2" dia stones. You know you can never get all of those smaller rocks it seems like! Maybe that rake I bought will help me out with the smaller stones also.
Anyway do you think it would be worth the money to get a blade that is basically .020 thicker and 2" dia. larger?
Thanks
