First of all, are your tires loaded? That is going to determine a lot of how much plow you can pull and how big of a disc you can pick up. I have a 2 14" MF #62 plow that I pull with my TO-20 so your 30 will handle a 2 14" with no problems. The TO-30 was rated to be a 3 14" plow tractor. Personally I prefer my Ferguson disc plow over the moldboard plow. It pulls much easier and doesn"t leave a hard pan like moldboard plowing does. Beware when shopping for a moldboard plow most older moldboard plows like Ferguson,Dearborn,Ford,etc...you can not get wear parts for them very easily anymore and they are very expensive when you do find them. If your rear tires aren"t loaded you will find plowing can be difficult depending on your soil type. Your tractor should be able to handle a 6.5" disc but depending on how heavy it is built you will want the front tires loaded as well or you will not keep the front end on the ground when the disc is picked up and your trying to turn. A quality disc will be heavy built. If you can find one a Ferguson or the later Massey Ferguson 3pt was one of the best 3pt discs ever built. I have 5 discs two of them are your cheaper TSC discs and two of them are old IH pull type and one of them is an old 7ft King Plow company disc. It is a 4 gang but I can only run half of it behind my TO-20 because I can"t keep the front end on the ground and my front tires are loaded but it cuts in one pass what one of the cheaper discs couldn"t do in three passes. Also don"t forget the Ferguson 9 shank tiller. It was designed to be used instead of moldboard plowing. They are a very handy plow to have.
