    Disker ??? for food plots

    Trying to decide on whether to buy a disker for my quad / rhino or for the Kubota B3030. looking there are a bunch made for both , just if spending that kind of money I want to buy the right thing first. Would rather use my rhino, as IM set better for trailering it around. but if using the 3 point of the Kubota would be much easier guess I would just pick up another trailer for moving it around. what has anyone had best luck with ?? that's held up well I bought a ground hog max, and IMO I wasted that money towards buying whats right for me

    Go with the disc on the 3030. I've used the atv style discs and well they kick up soil but in my experience you need to add a lot of ballast to get it to cut soil and if it's a newly disced area they can struggle if the ground isn't nice and moist. Throwing my disc on my kubota is a no brainer, 3pt with the down pressure and weight from the tractor is a night and day difference. If I did it again, I would probably go the route of a pto driven tiler. Few bucks more but man do they fill up the soil good. I'm trying to upgrade this year to a seed drill but you still need to disc unless you spend the big $$ and go with a notill drill

    2X what mahoney86 said, I'd also go with a tractor pulled disc; more weight to turn and breakup the soil better. Plus less strain on your rhino. I'm not just saying this because I have a smaller disc I'm looking to sell, but more for efficiency for you and your equipment. It has a 3 point hitch, compact yet heavy duty. I can send you pixs if you'd like and give you the dimensions. Been stored in the barn for years and I always use the bigger 12' when discing fields.

    International 4' x 4', 2 row/12 disc harrow, 3 point hitch, pins on 32" spacing. Been stored in the barn, I use 12' harrow for discing. This on looks like the newer Titan harrows. I'm located down in MD but drive back to NJ frequently.

    Tractor would be the best way as it’s designed for the job specifically but if your trailering only one vehicle To your hunting camp then the rhino with the attachment would be my choice. This way after your done working the fields you can go check cams and stands . The tractor is only good for the task at hand. Will the rhino disc like a tractor no or at least not as efficiently but neither can you drive your tractor everywhere you can your rhino. I have a 4’ PlotMaster and pull it with an ATV , works fine. Just depends which is more important to you . Good Luck Dan

    go for the tractor no matter what, heavier duty machine. otherwise you will kill your atv. if you do insist on going for the atv one, use low range and let the gearing work for you.
