help with a disc plow!

I have an E26D Eagle Hitch disk plow. Never used a mounted disc plow before. When you plow with it it will go 20' or so and then starts to spin the tractor to the right! The owners manual doesn't help much. It has a big cast tail wheel with 4 pie weights in it. Our ground is mostly clay and some gravel. How do I get this thing to plow straight? In the book it talks about a 5 sided wedge to change the blade pitch for different soils but nothing about making the side draft less.

I understand you problem:

the disc plow must be setup to go straight, just like lining up the front wheels of a truck.

that rear guide wheel/disc must be adjusted to bite into the furrow and pull the plow disc back straight. The plow disc blades pull the plow to the left on my plow and the trail wheel guides it back to the right. when you get it adjusted properly it will go straight and follow the tractor.

I have a ferguson disc plow, but the same principle.

when the rear disc blade got worn down and would no longer hold the plow straight, mamy people quit using the disc plows,

your rear disc guide blade may be worn down, so its not gripping properly.

find and down load instructions on using the disc plow.

the first thing I had to do was replace the rear guide blade on both of our disc plows (I have the red one MF64 and my friend has the older gray plow, both do a good job.

I used plow coulter blades as replacement guide disc blade replacements, do not know if that would work on your plow.

need to see a picture of your plow.

good luck, old disc plows will plow where flat bottom plows fear to go.

Jim is the plow running level? also it does require you to have front weights on the tractor I will dig out my book and see if it shows any thing different than yours

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Implements and Their Use - by Curtis Von Fange. Dad was raised during the depression years of the thirties. As a kid he worked part time on a farm in Kansas doing many of the manual chores. Some of the more successful farmers of that day had a new time saving device called a tractor. It increased the farm productivity and, in general, made life easier because more work could be done with this 'mechanical beast'. My dad dreamed that some day he would have his own tractor with every implement he could get. When he reached his early sixties ... [Read Article]
