We got a 4020 on our farm and I always wondered how many shank chisel plow would it pull, if it would pull one at all. It is 1972 diesel synchro shift. I'm pretty sure it delivers something like 94-96hp.Thanks for the help.

I had a 4020 a few years back before a now ex wife screwed up the works. Big as her butt is she aught to be able to pull a 40 ft. chisel! :o)
Anyhow, to get back to the question at hand. I have a 7 shank IH chisel that I pulled with it and it seemed to do just fine here in north Texas.
If you have not allready got one, let me suggest, just in case you may not allready know, to get one with spring resets to protect things. I'm sure it would have handled at least 2 more shanks as I can also pull this plow with the 3020 I still have. I must admit however, it has not been used in several years, just love that 12 ft. disk!!! Hope this helps!

Where does that big butt model you are talking about reside now? I got some heavy pulling to do here in south central texas and could really use her!

Depends on your soil and how deep you want to go. Here in hilly northern New Jersey, in our rocky clay soil, 7 shanks is all a 4020 wants at 6" deep. However, in the sandy loam soil in southern New Jersey, 9 shanks would work.

In heavy clay soil you'd like 20 hp+ per shank on a big twisted shank chisel, but you can get by with 10-12 hp on a simple narrow straight shank. For 2 years I pulled a 10 shank with a 85hp tractor, but it wasn't good for it & didn't go real deep.

We pulled a 17ft plow that had sweeps with a 1964 diesel 4020 powershift transmission back in the 60's and early 70's. We didn't go deep as the other guy said in his posting because we farm in wheat country Montana.

I had a Krause 9 shank pull type chisel plow with the twisted 3" points. I had to take 2 shanks off to pull it with my old 4020. It would pull the 7 shanks about 10 inches deep in Illinois silt loam. But not real fast. I am thinking I used 3rd gear in a syncrorange transmission.

Today's Featured Article - Fordson Model N: Field Service Operations and Lubrication - by Anthony West. The daily or weekly servicing of any vehicle is of the utmost importance, and in days gone by when our favorite tractors were doing an important and Commercially vital job on the farm, these service operations would make a major difference to the running costs and economy of the farm. This being so, it surprises me to see how many enthusiasts attending rallies, shows etc, seem to be unaware of the importance of this constant attention. Possibly the modern machine with its 6,000 mile or even once ... [Read Article]
