F-38 Disk Harrow

Postby farmallcub49 » Mon Nov 01, 2004 8:47 pm

I will be picking up my new toy in a few weeks. Included is a F-38 disk harrow. This one is for what appears to be a regular cub. Will a regular disk hook up to a loboy? Or do I need to trade someone for a loboy one?

If not being able to pick it up isn't a problem, you can always get a tandem pull type. They don't care what they are hooked to.

So a loboy won't pick up a regular disk?

I am sure that a Lo-Boy version of the disk would run into the tires on a Farmall. The biggest problem going the other way may be that the tractor will be too light on the front. The fact that IH made a different hitch for the Lo-Boy after the Farmall version was in the field says something.

Jim,

As long as I have your attention, my loboy per the serial # is 10013, making it a '58. The grill on it is a white four bar grill, which I believe is a '59 style, could a late '58 have that '59 style grill? Is there a certain date or serial # that they changed over?

Thanks, Thanks, Thanks!!!

Yes, it changed at serial 10,001. Hood, grill and name plates all changed at the same time.

The tandem I was referring to is a pull type. It is not intended to be picked up.

How did you move something like that from field to field or across the road with tearing every thing up? Did you keep the discs them selves straight for and aft for travel and angle them for work?

Bill, you are exactly right. The disks are adjustable and by aligning the axles parallel to each other, the cutting action is reduced. It was designed and built into the tongue of the disk. To "set" the disk, you would pull the rope attached to the latch on the tongue and back up the tractor. This pushed the center back creating the cutting angle. The rear gangs, if it was a double gang disk were angled by the cross-over pattern of the arms. To straighten the disk, you released the latch and pulled forward until they were straight.
Transport was noisy, but the disks would not do any more damage than slightly scratching the surface of the road or sod etc.

Bigdog has it correct. I've had one for several years, and when set straight it hardly leaves any marks in the grass, even with concrete blocks on it for weight. Going up the gravel road to disk the neighbors garden sure is slow and noisy though.

John,
When I say regular disk, I mean the regular verision of the fast hitch disk that mounts on a regular cub.

I run a 38 FH disk on my loboy. It works fine in the field but while in transport the front is a little light. I fixed that by adding a second set of front weights and filling the front tires completly with antifreeze under pressure.
