140 Non Fast Hitch Disk Questions

Postby Brandon Webb » Wed Feb 28, 2018 10:05 am

What kind of pull disk could you get for a 140 if you didn't have a fast hitch? I don't think I've ever seen one. Do they have a model number or? I assume they are like a cubs just larger?

The 140 should be able to handle a 5 foot tandem disk or a 6 foot single. I wouldn't purchase anything larger.

I purchased a 10 foot tandem disk. My WD Allis could pull the disk on the level and down hill but not up hill.

Yup, just like the Cub disk. Many manufacturers. I wouldn't get excited about a manufacturer or model number. Just inspect before purchase.

Disks come up at farm and ag. consignment auctions frequently. Suggest staying away from the old horse drawn disks because they frequently have wood bearings. Wood bearings are expensive and hard to obtain.

As far as IH goes, it would be a #60 (or close to that number) or a 120, probably a 122 as well. The 60 and 120 look identical--bent channel iron frame, adjustable gangs, etc. The 122 has an angle iron frame. These disks were available as Super A/140 hitch, one point fast hitch, or three point hitch. I have never seen one with a Super A hitch. Most people around here ran an aftermarket disk, I assume a King.

Send me a PM to remind me and I'll see if I can find my parts book that shows the models and the hitch.

Brandon, this link should work. It shows the parts to hitch the 120 disk to the 140

I think Brandon is asking about a towable disk harrow that attaches to the tractors draw bar and has an adjustable gang/gangs.

In this part of Missouri, these type disk harrows come up at auction on a frequent basis.

Thinking that if you put an ad in the local weekly fliers, and specify what you want, you will get a response.

I believe that was a #10A or somesuch. Personally I wouldn't go that route.

Very good topic becuase I've never ran into anything either unless it was just an aftermarket drag type or fast hitch

Either lift or drag I was just wondering if you bought a new 140 that wasn't fast hitch what the IH dealer would sell you.

My observation, growing up in Iowa in the late 1940s until the mid 1960s, farmers were still using converted horse drawn machines/attachments.

In 1963/64 I recall planting corn with a 2 row horse drawn planter. Perhaps a year or two later uncle, who I was working for, purchased an 8 row planter. Any way, a lot of the small farmers, 40 - 80 acres, were selling out. Neighboring farmer who could afford the land were purchasing and needed to increase the size of their tractors and implements.

Again a guess, if a farmer were going to buy a new or used tractor, it would have to have had a cultivator. Second observation, the next item my grandfather and father purchased was a corn picker.

Around here it would most likely have been a King. I've looked online but can't seem to find an example. It hooked up similar to this: download/file.php?id=18698&mode=view

There was a Lift Disk Harrow made that was very similar to the Cub-28A. Original model was A-38, in 5.5 and 6.5' widths, made in 53 and 54. This was replaced by the 1A-38, made from 55-58, and finally a No.138 from 1959-1961. There may have been more after this, this is just what I can dig up easily. These connected to the drawbar in the floating rear position and lifted with the hydraulic lift by means of chains. These were all single gang disks.
