The KB series of disks I thought was one of thr best disks ever. A lot don't like them tho. That is a flexiable disk and 7 blades would be an 8'8" disk, a 6 blade would be a 7'6" disk. You always measure width on back gang. That Love disk just take the bearings apart and clean them and put back together and repair or replace that axle. Now I think that Love disk has a wider blade spacing than the Deere so a 6 blade Love just might be wider than a 7 blade Deere. That 6 or 7 blade is number of blades per gang or on a side for a 7 blade having a total of 28 blades, a 6 blade 24 blades. I forget the blade spacing on the Deere but if I remember correctly it is 7.5" and I think the Love is 8.5 or 9" blade spacing. So being same weight a Love would be more of a heavy tillage disk and Deere more of a finnish disk. That Love disk is a big rarity as in my 76 years I have seen only one but I have had 3 KB series disks. 2 KBA drag disks 6 on a side and a 7 on a side wheel carried KBA disk. Pulled them all with a late John Deere B tractor. 28 MAX PTO HORSEPOWER. I have no idea what that New Holland tractor is. And that Deere could be with grease type steel bearings or later were avaible with sealed bearings. KBL is the model number for the Deere disk but I think they had different model not neere as popular that I don't know model of. Deere should have 18" blades but still work with nown to a d15" blade but pull harder and do not work as good. I think anything under 17" on that Love is totally wore out. The Deere the gang angle is adjustable, don't know on the love.

Thanks for all the great information. I have wanted to try to restore the Love disc, because it's in good working condition other than for the seized bearings and rounded shafts in places. I have not been able to get the wood bearings removed from the housings though. I looked in to replacing the housings and the bearings but have not gotten very far on that project. It has 20 inch discs, 5 per gang. My New Holland tractor is 30 HP, 4 WD.

Here are a few photos of the Love disc. I had removed one of the gangs to see if I could get the bearing out of the housing, but I was not able to. I am not sure why there is a round metal pipe inside the bearing, when the shaft is square.
