Post #1  Post subject: Need older 3 point disc or advice
PostPosted: Mon May 22, 2017 7:42 am 
Lookin' for an older 3 point 4-6' disc for food plot work in rocky ground. That is unless you have a better suggestion for how this poor man can stir rocky plot sites. I've just scratched the ground the last few years but the grass has become so thick it's gotten almost impossible to scratch any more. Afraid if I try to use a plow I'll have a bigger rock problem than I have now. A disc does a decent job for a few years before they finally start comin' apart in all those rocks but right now I'm fresh out of old discs and don't have the option of different plot sites I could scratch around in.

I have had good luck with (I am not sure of the name of implements) spring tooth plow 7 points. As long as the rocks are not to big. If the ground is really hard and rocks are big you can break the points. If it is wet or small rocks it seems to work pretty well. You need to kill off and mow really low and vegetation as it will clog up in the plow. I have a small 5 tooth one I made several food plots with the 4 wheeler on the rocky Deltic land. It was a lot of work keeping it cleaned out due to no PTO to lift the plow to clean out the vegetation. I heard of one guy that uses his box blade whit the points to put in fall plots.

Plowing leaves the round really rough until you get it disced real good. Yes you might turn up more rocks. The easiest way if you can spray the grass is to spray let it die back then use a harrow if all you need to do is scratch it. Those little discs just cannot handle rough work. Unless you enjoy replacing blades, axles and bearings you need to find another way.
