Tractor Disc Harrows | Tractor Blade Harrows: A Comprehensive Guide
What Is a Disc Harrow?
Disc harrows, widely used in farming for many years, are essential implements for breaking up freshly plowed soil. These harrows feature angled blades that effectively break down large pieces of rolled-over soil, creating an ideal environment for plant growth. As the blades roll over the freshly turned dirt, friction between the metal discs and the ground breaks it up into smaller, more manageable pieces. Additional passes with the disc harrow may be required based on specific needs and soil conditions.
Choosing the Right Disc Harrow
Farmers have relied on blade harrows to effectively stir the ground and achieve considerable depth since the 1880s. With the advent of tractors replacing traditional horses and mules, disc harrows evolved into larger, more robust implements. While some farmers find angle iron disc harrows sufficient for their needs, others opt for box frame disc harrows, which provide adjustable blade angles and increased weight. The type of disc harrow required depends on the purpose of soil cultivation and the specific soil type.
Beyond Soil Breaking
Although primarily used for breaking up soil after plowing, disc harrows have a range of other applications. Besides incorporating lime evenly into the soil, these harrows can chop up weeds and leftover stalks, prepare the ground for planting food crops, and serve various other ground-disturbing purposes.
