I found this photo on the web, and it caught my attention.
I have one very much like this out by the shed, that was part of a package deal with a Farmall A. The manufacturer's tag on it is all but illegible, but I have been able to make out the name "Hesston". It is vaguely similar the Cub-152 Disc Pow, but somewhat simpler in construction. It is definitely too narrow to mount up between the final drives under the A, but if memory serves me it measured just right for bolting between the drives of a Cub. Does anyone else here have one of these things, or ever seen one in operation under a Cub? Mine has been resting (and rusting) quietly out by the shed for a number of years, and seems to have been perfectly content with that, but I'm thinking maybe I should get it in and under a bit more cover. I am mildly curious as to how it would perform out in the garden, but I'm not sure I want to go through the effort of taking the sickle mower off and then trying to wrangle this heavy piece of iron under there.
At any rate, I have at least gotten it up out of the ground - one side of the frame was about eight inches into the ground, and the disc had sunk at least that far. Remarkably, the disc still turns quite freely and whatever is serving as a bearing in there seems to still be in admirable condition - considering the number of years is has been sitting out in the weather.
