A good, heavy 10 ft offset is gonna be a LOAD for a 4020; we pulled a 9ft PKH JD for many, many years with a 4020D w/dual 15 inch 3rd gear. As JMS has said, you're gonna need something for some secondary tillage; an offset is gonna leave the soil in about the same shape as would a moldboard plow, 'though it may be slightly better pulverized.....depending on what the sod was like.

Hey, Turlow- it's phantastic if you pardon the phun you allow me with yer name over the years......I'm thinking of what a phriend used for 8 foot Bush Hog ophphset disc....primary tillage on sand/light clay.....with a 190XT....had a 7 phoot before on maybe an 830 Case....all they wanted. 190XT is 93 hp, 4020 is 94 hp.....pretty much even match on hp and weight. And third gear? I'd get really bored with that- would have to pack a sammich to get across any field! BTW- I know you have a history of cotton.......sort of a rouph idea where you are- would love to phind a cotton picker, like maybe on a WD AC.......great show item in the cold north of MN! Saw one at Amana Colonies some years ago, for sale.......

I've seen a couple of old A-C pickers sitting in phence rows, but can't remember where; I 'spect the cost to ship 'em would be prohibitive. I'll start paying more attention; never can tell what I might run across.......

Shipping cost can be replaced by road tripping! Sounds like a good trailer run in the middle of a MN winter!
