Getting ready to build a homemade field finisher. Have a couple of old discs we are going to use for the gangs. Looking to set it up with a gang of discs in the front followed by a row of cultivators and another row of discs. After that we're going put in a single cultipacker followed at the end by a rolling basket we're going to fab out of re bar and some metal plates. Any suggestions or advice?

Probably better off selling your disks, or scrapping them, then buying a finisher.

The one I made has the front gangs flipped around so the dirt is thrown in towards the center.The V is turned around backwards.I have two rows of danish tines in the center,I used 2x2 tubing bolted to the frame to mount my danish tines.The back row of disc blades is straight across the back,no angle,they just slice and dice.On the back I have a Midwest harrow,3 bar spring-tooth.E-Mail is open.

Unless you clean plow everything make sure you spread out those cultivator shovels or it will plug for you.

You need 4 or 5 rows to spread out 9 inch shovels on 8 inch centers without them being to close together.
