you did not mention what type tractor you will be pulling the disc with.

However, if you have not bought a disc,

just so you know, I bought a 6ft Tufline disc once, it's one of the best disc out there, had roller bearing,

but it was so heavy that my little TO35 Ferguson could not handle it when I picked it up at the ends. It pulled great and cut fine, but at the ends I had to guide the tractor with the brakes because the front wheels were only kissing the ground, no control.

so I sold it and bought a mid weight disc, not as good, but the little TO-35 can handle it much better.
plan to give it a good cleaning and some new paint this spring, good little disc for a small tractor.

also note: if your disc has slotted blades like mine on the rear gangs. They tend to tangle with any drag that you might want to pull to level with. Solid blades on the rear gangs work much better with drags.

I got plenty of tractors probably pull it with a 70 hp,I was told one time that the old Ford disc I think the 221 was one of the best about breaking and the reason was because it had the old spool bearings

The Ford 221 had a unique feature in that when deep cutting was required the rear gangs could be folded up and over the front gangs. This put all the weight of the disk on just the front gangs which made them cut deeper. It's a neat design - a "bush and bog" disc for heavy cutting and a tandem disc for finish work, all in one implement. This model was also available with big blades, up to 28" according to the parts catalog, which would also be an advantage for deep tillage.

That is the model that I am looking far the frame set down low on the blades and it had the box type bearings and they were very good disc
