Default Brinly disk-gang

Hellow guys and gals! Maybe you could help me out with this disk gang. I dont know if I should have the front pull in the dirt or push it out. Also I have been trying alot of diffrent set up's as to how to have the disk's mounted / direction.

Have the garden very well disked up using the IH Cub Cadet 71, but the way I'am pulling dont seem very efficient. I do have a reasonable sized rock on each disk. Any advice would be welcomed . Thanks, John

p.s I know picts help, so I will post some of what I have going on if it dont rain any time soon.

There was a recent discussion on this here:

http://www.mytractorforum.com/showthread.php?t=225446

If it's a dual gang setup, my guess would be the front gang should pull dirt it, and the rear push it back out. If the front pushes it out, the rear will never work that displaced soil, when the idea is to get that double-wham on each pass.

All of the disk I have seen are setup to have the 1 row cut & throw dirt out & 2nd row pull dirt back in.

Thankyou for the link to that discussion. I rember reading that now,....lets see, I believe that's the gentalman who runs the big " super " Wheelhorse gt.

Yes, I have the dual gang set up. My garden is just big enough that to hit the middle of the garden, I need to make inside out passes on both sides. If that makes any sence.

It did rain, but I'am far from being made of sugar,....would like to get it set up tommrow and shoot some picts! And the 71 is due for a bath any way since we wont be in the garden.

I did notice when making turns that I was leaving some nice wind rows of soil. Was hoping the rear disk would have covered that but did not. Also having the disk axel bolt's double nut come loose.

I use my homemade floating drag hitch to tow the gang. The rock weight is about 50 - 60 lbs. each.

Thankyou for those links, and the Brinly Manual. I now see in fig. # 7 as to how my angle and disk needs to be set. Front gang is pulled forward, and the rear is pulled backwards. That makes alot of sence! Front should throw out, and the rear should throw in. Thanks guys for the help! I sure was spinning my wheels!

Ok guys, I believe I have the gang figured out. Here are some pictures. I did get the 71 washed and cleaned up the grease around the spindels, and greased up. Has been a great day so far!













Looks good, I'll know more when the ground dries a little more. Thanks again for the help! The Ohio disk is 10.5 inches apart. The Brinly has the slotted frame which let me place the disk close togeather with out toutching. The Ohio disk has holes and was not a good choice for a front disk.

I think you should change the 2nd disk hook up. that is put the bar from 2nd disk under the bar from the 1st disk.

Not a problem! In fig. # 6 in the Brinly Manual, picture shows the same hook up as what I have here. I'll give it a try!

Some of the Brinly disc use a piece of sqaure tubing to keep the disc in
line and leave some movement the late ones use 2 pins to do this or you can have a single pin so they
can follow along or you can bolt them solid
Thats the first Ohio Steel disc I have seen I knew they made one just
never saw one

Thats a good point about bolting the tandem togeather solid. I have the feeling the rear disk is going to waller around a bit. But my turning radius maybe cut in half. I dont know. But I know there is a art to using a tandem disk harrow!
The diaphragm in the pulsa-jet carb is bad in the chipper shredder so I broke out the harrows and went through the garden destroying all of last year's plants and I was very impressed! Even the sweet corn stalks have been diced up. After another round, I'll get out my tiller and go to town!
Cant wait!

I took up on littledeere's advice and used 2 bolts on the tandem. It pulled alot better, thanks! My garden is now ready for tilling. I will need weight in the front of the IH Cub Cadet 72 when we cross that bridge. The 71 pulled forward and I could not steer when I then found myself hung up in the cornners of the garden a few times. It was good to hear the mighty trans.gear doing a fine job at work! The disks did a much better job. The garden looks great, as you can see!
