depending on soil type a five shank chisel would be good it might do a seven . A disc of like others have said 14 foot WITH duals as for a moldboard plow 4x16's is max . Field cultivator up to 16 foot . Here again soil type comes into play. I ran a 710 4x16 plow and a 370 13.6 disc with 20 inch blades , yes i could pull it with out the duals but did a lot of spinning . But i have hills and with the 4 bottoms on most of the time 700 was needed on the ft. and at times over a 1000 to keep it somewhat on the ground , i really don't like looking down the exhaust pipe or the sky when ya get on a hill and she pulls down and lifts the ft. 7 feet in the air before ya get the clutch pushed in and ride the brakes so ya don't just drop her. They do come up fast at times if she is locked to the ground.

I was just rembering circa 1970 dad, uncle, and Grandpa were farming the 500 acres they owned plus generally another couple of hundred rented with a 706, 2 656s, and an SC case. Dad was working in town and uncle milked. We worked kinda hard back then. We had an ih 93 sp combine and a two row new idea mounted picker for the 706.

With me my hobby farming was done with a 450 D and a set of 4 bottom semi mounts to start with then a 460 hated that tractor and only had it two years and it was history then i bought a rag 706 for next to nothing and ran it but nowhere near that many acres as one i could not find that much land to rent and time i did not have . Till i got out of trucking and started fixen and buying and selling . Then i farmed with what ever would run off the truck or what came out of the shop after repairs were made as i was sorta FIELD testing them before someone came in to buy it . There were times that the plow was dropped in the farrow because someone would come in and buy it in the field and plowing had to wait till i either got one up and running or went to a sale and bought something else. The one spring i went thru six tractors before i got fifteen acres plowed.
