Spent another 3 hours going over the garden today, once with the digger and than once with double disc.
Forgotten just how rough riding a cub cadet can be.

Forget the disc, waste of time and fuel
You cant get goiing fast enough and deep enough to do much more than compact the soil. That is IF you can even stay in the seat!! :)

Just fall plow and spring till.
ground works up perfect and the spuds will just push into place ready to hill.

I second that...disks work awesome - with the right speed.

I was going to get a tiller but I'm contemplating a cultivator. With my little garden area (which is raised and filled, not a compacted section of ground) I'm thinking that'll work fine for me. :unsure:

Hello Lonnie, looks like the plow worked fine. Good to see you using Cubs again. I find the disk just scratches the surface too, in the past I've added a bunch of weight to i then I don't have enough traction to pull it. Dual up your 72 and you'll be fine in that sandy soil you have.

Wish it where that simple, ground here is loaded with rocks of all sizes.
Tiller only works after ground is somewhat level and 95% rock free at surface level.

Vince,
Have not had the opportunity to try out the plough yet.
My younger brother ploughed the ground last fall with my 3235 and 3point plough.
He made a mess of the ground, 3 different dead furrows in the garden, all sod.
Hopefully this fall I will get to use the plough I got from you.
I removed the duels last fall in hopes on using the 72 to plough the garden, lack of time prevented that.

I admire your determination. I'm trying to create a nice little 1/2 acre pasture, and it's a struggle with my 48 hp Ford! I keep discing and seeding, trying to work some organic matter into the soil. I have about 500 lbs. on my 20 disc rig, and you do have to pull it pretty fast to get good action. I used my CC to spread some seed, and pull a drag harrow, and it beat me up pretty bad.
