Drag Harrow

Postby Papa's Cub » Fri Dec 20, 2013 1:59 pm

I have been looking on the internet for a site that sells a new Disk harrow for a cub and all I can find is a Drag Type harrow. I was wondering if somebody here was using one and would share their opinion of it. A video of one working would be nice. I'd prefer a Disk harrow if I could the site of a manufacture. Thanks, Papa.

As far as I know the only new disk harrow that would work with a Cub would be a drag harrow. (Without modification) I would suggest finding a good used harrow made for the Cub.

Tractor Supply (TSC) has a disk harrow listed on their web site. It's designed for an ATV but will work on a Cub.

Check the web sites for you local farm and ranch stores.

I could probably get you a 4' fast hitch disk cheaper than that one!

I bought a large IH drag disk and I just took off the rear gangs and the front part pulls easily behind the cub and digs deep.
Its heavy enough I dont even have to put wheights in the wheight brackets. ANd it only cost me 80 dollars at a farm auction.
Tractors are like watermelons: the RED is good and you throw away the GREEN.

The disk harrow isn't a precision machine. Bearing slop, chunks of disk missing, no problem. It's used once or twice a year at most.

Agree with previous posts, look around at auctions or scrap dealers. If the original disk harrow is not to big, most can be adapted to work behind a Cub. Also check out implements for 2 wheeled garden tractors - most go for scrap metal price.

For no more than most folks use a disk harrow, find a well used one that will work - inexpensive.

You did not mention which drawbar you have. Fast hitch would be the easiest to way to make one that picks up. I have a friend with a cub who uses a Kubota 4 foot double cut disk modified for fast hitch. Says it works very well. Sorry, no pictures.

We like our old disk. A swinging draw bar would be a plus. This video is the first time we used it, now we go a lil slower, cut a lil deeper

Thanks for all of the replies and ideas. Neither of my cubs are equipped with a fast hitch. The reason I was trying to find a new one was due to the price of a used single disk harrow. I just can't justify paying $300 - $400 then driving 400 - 700 miles round trip to get it home. I was hoping I could tend the garden completely this coming year with one of the cubs instead of having to prepare the ground with the Ford. For now I'll keep looking locally. I like the idea of getting a bigger set and removing the rear gangs. Anyhow, I submitted an ad in the market bulletin earlier this week and plan to try my luck on Craig's List as well. Thanks again and Merry Christmas, Papa.

Check with your local scrap dealers. One dealer in central Missouri sets old farm equipment off to the side rather than "scrapping" it. Also, if you tell the dealers what you are looking for and leave your name and phone number - perhaps.
