I'm fairly certain it's an old John Deere disc. It's somewhere between 6 and 8 feet, and it has an actual sort of platform between the two tires.

JD RW/RWA were known for not being very good at leveling the soil. According to JDparts.com RW's were even ft sizes and RWA's were feet & inches size.

(A) FOR 7', 8', 9' RW, AND 5'10", 7'2", 8'6", 9'10" RWA.

(B) FOR 10', 12', 13', 14' RW AND 11'2", 12'6", 13'10" RWA.

Does this thing cut freshly plowed dirt well? Or do I need to drop some serious weight on it?

The platform is for placing rocks, railroad ties, etc....to make the sucker cut decently!

Excellent -- a google image search for this looks promising!

It pulls pretty good behind a WD, except it trails to the side a little.

That trailing to the side probably is at least partly due to the mismatched tires, they need to be matched for a wheel carried disk to work corectly as they are what controls your cuting depth and a smaller tire will let that side cut deeper and pull harder so it will pull to the opposide. That disk is a non adjustable angle gang and the only way to adjust depth is with the wheels. It could also be a gang not fastened on correctly or something bent that makes it pull to the side. As for in fresh plowed groung you are going to have to hold it up with the wheels to keep it from going to deep for you to pull it. I would not own a non adjustable gang angle disk. Had a Burch at one time that was like that and traded it on a McCormick No. 37 disk and could pull one blade wider at all times as if you can set the gangs at the 2/3 rd setting for the first time over it will usually do a better job by going deeper taking less power and for finnishing use the 1/3rd setting. I dabble a bit now with machinery the Amish can use with there horses and I could not give away a disk like that, has to be the adjustable gang type. The anly time you would want weight on it would be to disk up corn stalks and then your tractor probably would not pull it. With that type of disk with your tractor should not be over a 6 blade on a side with a 7" blade spacing. And they will never cut sod.

Looks to be an RWA John Deere.
