Re: weld-on spoons for a JD rotary hoe?

I am not sure if they have all gone to scrap around here or what. I have a 4 row JD that we bought new in about 1970 or so. In all the years that we used it, we rarely pulled it "forewards" My dad thought it was too agressive. So we turned it around to pull backwards. Guess it depends on the soil and the crop.

I still use mine, but there should be others settin around in the fence row.

Central MO. I'll keep my eyes open.

Too agressive? I could not get enough agressiveness pulling two (2) of them together in forward use. Running double. By old Ford with angle iron teeth that replaced a Deere that done no good was a lot better hoe at doing the job. I had looked at those spoons 30+ years ago and went with the other hoe. Did not realize they still made them. In the meantime after I got rid of the Deere and had a McCormic that was no better, and the teeth on that showed no ware.

Hey Gene,

I was scratching my head on how you pull it backward, but then I realized you're talking about a pull-type. I am talking 3 point mounted 400 series models. They're pretty thick around here, but many are ready for the scrapper. There were two at that sale - one had huge balls of frozen sod on the bottoms of the tines. It had clearly sat outside in a fencerow for decades. I got there too late to see it sell, but it would have been hard to pay much for it, anyway.

I think my best bet is just to rebuild my wheels and run with it. What I was looking for is someone else who's done it.
