The disc is used on the 3pt without a sway bar, you need the side to side movement to allow for turning. We used our 8N on the disc before dad bought another farm and we got a larger tractor. For tight turns you will need to lift the disc however we always made longer sweeping turns with the disc in the ground - in general the brakes should not be needed or used very lightly to turn. Brakes waste fuel.

Second gear is typically used with the plow, disc etc. - we always run at approximately 3/4 throttle. Some people would plow etc. at full throttle but dad never instructed us to run full open.

It is best to disc at an angle if you are going to make more than one pass. For example, we would disc a field from corner to corner and the second pass would be from the opposite corners at 90 degrees. Actually we would do, what dad called "two at once" ; the disc was not lifted once the field was started. I would need to post a diagram for explaination, if anyone is interested.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Sorry this is hard to read. My scanner will not read the document so I took a photo. See attached below.

There are four circles with numbers (1 - 4) in them on the diagram. The notes read as follows;

1) Start here (lower right hand corner), drop disc & drive north/west.

2) Lift disc to make turn.

3) Drop disc & drive south/east, all turns are made without lifting the disc except to start and finish.

4) Continue around & around, Finish passes will be south/west & north/east.
