However long I expect a task to take on a tractor I double that for all the repairs along the way!!!! If you ain't fixing you ain't farming!!!!

If I could just find and old junk disc I'd be set! I don't mind old and junk as long as it works and gets the job done.

Running old junk....I have a degree in that art! :) I have a disk that is so worn out it's pitiful but I can't identify it enough to even start to know how to buy bearings for it. And that's assuming you can buy them. It dates back to somewhere around WWII seriously. 4 of my 5 tractors are 1948 models. My main problem is that my tractors (with the exception of one) are made for pull type implements so I'm stuck using what I have and 3-Point Hitch implements are not useable for me.

I've busted 2 discs off the end of my disk the past couple of years doing food plots. What I did was find all the pieces and take them back to the house and weld it all back together as straight as possible and keep going.

With you - I run a 1964 tractor that I've had for over 10 years. It can be a pain some times, but is the best $3500 I have ever spent. It is a much better investment than a 4-wheeler for getting work done, longevity, and resale.
