Hey guys, We have a JD 5320 set up with 16.9 x30's and 11 x24 MFWA. Thinking about getting a JD 111 disk that appears to be 12.6 wide, 20" blades on 9" spacing. Will be for primary tillage on cotton, corn and soybean research farm in NE side of N.C near Rocky Mount. Am I biting off more than I want here with this proposal? Will follow it up with a 13' cultimulcher to finish the seedbed ahead of the 4r 7000 planter with coulters. Thanks for the input.

THANKS for the help guys. We are likely to have around 45-50 acres in a 3 crop rotation, corn, soybeans and cotton to do test plot work. It is fairly flat ground Sounds like I'm not overmatched but, I need to be cautious to remember it's not a 3020 either.

I own a 5320. We use it for haying and some "chore" work. I also own a 12 ft Duetz-Allis 2500 series disk with 18 or 20 inch disks ..don't remember which. I have had problems pulling the disk with a 6080 Allis. Unless the rather light 5320 is weighted down with front end weights, rear weights and ballast and possess a loader frame to keep the engine block from "flexing" as it pulls the disk, et al.. over the uneven ground... I would refrain from using it. The 5320 is one tough little tractor, but it wasn't designed to do heavy tillage work. It might pull it with the disks set shallow, but I doubt it would pull it with the disks set down to its axles. It's a matter of tractor weight/traction.

I don't know the JD 111 disk, but if it's more of a finish disk as Tx Jim indicates and it doesn't pull real hard you should be OK. Also, if you don't plan to cover a whole lot of acres you should be OK. However, remember the JD 5000 Series tractors were originally designed to be more suited for pto work like mowing and for loader usage tractors than primary tillage, hard pulling for long hours tractors.

I think a JD 111 disk harrow is far cry from a primary tillage tool as it's much closer to a finishing tandem disk.
