3pt disk for TO20

Would a TO-20 pull a 6ft disk or should I just stick with a 5ft? Next question does anyone have one for sale within reasonable driving distance of Western Kentucky?

If rear tires are loaded and good tread, tractor in good running condition, it should do it with ease.

You ask if it"ll pull it. Yes - but will it lift it? If it does, steering will be awful light. I doubt my TO would lift my two gang discs. If the ground is hard & weights are needed, the TO certainly wouldn"t lift the weight - which is why I use my 135 for discing.

Thanks for all the replies .The tires are good and there is calcium in them already

We have a 6 foot disk on our TO 20 and it loses traction if an agressive angle is set on the disc gangs. Plenty of power, just needs better tires. Also, the tires should be loaded for weight.

When you load the tyres they should never be loaded more than 3/4 full as you do need some air in them. If you have the tyres completely full then there will not be enough tread in contact with the ground, they will try to grip on just the middle couple of inches, just look how the tyres wear, that will tell you. What is better is to drop the tyre pressures down to about 10psi from the normal 12psi when you have something heavy to pull or working wet conditions. Having the tyres flexing like that at 10psi will allow them to clean themselves better than having a lot of pressure in them and full ballast....John

With an implement attached I always back the tractor on the trailer. It is really the best practice anyway with or without an implement.

Billy, I think it will pull the disk fine. The one issue you may have is when loading it on a trailer with the disk, if you ever have to. The front will definitely come up on the tractor and that can get scary as you ascend the trailer ramps.

It should handle a 6 foot disk fine. I have a 5 foot and never felt it bog down.
