Local dealer has a White 271 rock flex disk. It is 22" wide, with 20 inch blades. I have a White 135 as my big horse, it will pull a 9 shank brillion disk chisel very well. Do I have enough horsepower to pull this in medium to heavy soil of Wisconsin?

Yeah right, not a heavy disk????? one of the best disks you can but for the money hands down! You better have one really health running 135 cause if you plan on putting it in the ground any depth your gonna know its behind you guaranteed! Not very knowledgeable on white tractors but an added plus would be front wheel drive for traction. We have flat black tight ground in our area and own both an Oliver 271 24ft rock flex and also a White 272 34ft rock flex. We pull the 24ft with a Massey Ferguson 1155 set at 160hp and with disk buried all the way in ground I wouldn't want anything less for power and if its wet traction is an issue that's why I say 4wd would be a plus! We pull our White 34ft with a Massey Ferguson 5200 4wd set at 500hp and you can pick any gear you wanna pull it in so that's in material. Lots of international and John deere disks in our area and the Oliver's/White's job is just as good if not better after the first pass in high yielding triple stack hybrid corn yielding 200+ bu/acre! Sorry for long post! Thanks

Your tractor will handle it, however, after owning a 271, I would advise you to look for a Krause or CaseIH disk.

Most people thought they cut ok, didn't they come with 22" blades? If so the best part of the blades is already gone.

Light disk my @ss. I have one behind a 4-150 and you sure know it's back there. I think it will work the tail off a 2-135. I used to pull one a bit bigger with a 2-155 or a 4-180 and the 2-155 would do ok if you were disking shallow but bury it an it's another story. The 4-180 or 4-210 was a much better match. If you get that 2-135 on any wet spots whatsoever it will be game over right now. If you're just going to go out and play around on some light ground and disk 3 inches deep you will probably be ok. If you have any hills or wet gulleys or heavy soil forget it.

I think I recognize that tractor. I believe I know where you live now. I thought you were closer to the Ashley Silver Dome,but you're a little farther east than I thought.

Yes rrlund we're just a few miles more out in the sticks living the dream! Old family farm and dad and myself are the last of the mohicans so when we're done farming it will probably have to change over to somebody elses place. Been in our family since the early 1900's. My siblings don't have any interest in farming. When I was younger and would visit grandma out here I thought the highway was kind of cool but now it's just terrible with the semi's and the rumble strips. I wish we were a mile off the road. We do have a lot of really good neighbors living around here. Most have been here for their entire lifetimes. It's really a pretty good little community out here.

I know what you mean about the road. We aren't on a state highway,but it's the main county road between Sheridan and Greenville. When this house was built in the mid 1800s the road was no doubt just a dirt trail. The barn was on the other side of the road and the house sits so close to the road I could almost spit off the porch and hit the pavement. To top it off I'm right on top of a hill just before a curve at the bottom. The ones coming up the hill are really getting on it coming up and the ones going down are backing off,trucks are using the jake brakes. Motorcycles are the worst. They love to hit those curves as fast as they can and are getting on it going both ways. Hard to get much peace. Almost every dog we've ever had has eventually met its doom on that road.

I guess light is relative compared to what you are used to. I was comparing it to a new disk of the same size. Our 25 foot Krause can give our 8320 a work out, but with our 271 that we sold last year, you didnt even know it was back there.

I was thinking those 271 disks weighed about 8000 lbs for that size. I know they can go to the axle in the hardest ground we have and I rarely see it not go in the ground as far as you want it to. I know the 2-135 is a pulling horse, I was just thinking when it might get to an occasional wet spot it could be trouble. I've had my 150 hung up with it and had to unhook from it.

well we have a 2150 and a 2-135 and the 2150 can easily pull a 24 ft keawanee disk. we also plan on buying a 271 disk as well, yet ours would be 25 ft rock flex.

We had a IH 470 disc that was 20' with new 20" blades. Not as heavy of a disc, but in wet southern WI clay, our 2-135 just played with it. I would think you'll be just fine.

Sorry, I didn't proofread as well as I should, it is 22 feet wide. Steve.
