Thanks for the encouragement. I was hoping to get some feedback on how likely it is to work and be a good thing. I'm a bit hesitant to cut up my only plow and possibly ruin my only disc. There should be plenty of metal there between the two frames for the strength and weight. Any input of how many chisel shanks to use and at what spacings? Should the chisel points be at the same level as the bottom of the discs or should they extend a bit deeper?

I think youre a bit confused. Vertical tillage machines do not use chisel points. They are made to only go 2 inches deep. All they are supposed to do is cut up trash and mix it with a very little dirt.

Chisels always run deeper than discs. Half to again as deep, if they"re going to do a decent job. I doubt your combo will accomplish as much as the factory vert tillage tools. Make a pass with each machine and see what the results can do that without cutting up anything.....If you want to rip hardpan, you need ripper shanks.....longer than chisel shanks. And lots more power.

Neighbor to the north made one from a heavy 9 inch spacing JD disk. One of those that just have one wing. about 21 ft wide. He straightened the gangs and made sure the back gangs split the front ones. Then put 2 inch no-till wavy coulters. Also has 2000 lb or so of weight in the middle of it. Pulls it with a big CIH Magnum front wheel assist. Says need to stay above 8 mph and 10 is better. He runs it down on the spools, so is going 6 to 7 inches deep. Has rolling baskets behind. Seems to do a good job. But I'm not sure yields are better than just no-tilling. He says lets him plant a couple of days sooner.
