Need to tow my JD BWF disc to the shop to have some work performed on it. It is a pretty good distance up the highway, and I thought I would share a tip about towing a drag type disc with those that haven't done it.
Due to the lateral play in the disc gangs on a disc that has angle adjustments, they are notorious for a slight shift in mass that has flipped many a tractor and truck into a ditch while moving along a paved road. Once the fish tailing starts, it is tough to stop it because of the weight of a typical disk. I have personally experienced just a mild fish tail when towing with both tractor and truck, just moving my disc up the FM to the next gate.
It is very easy to eliminate the play that creates the shift that creates the loss of control. Simply run a come-a-long from tow bar near the tongue to the outer extreme of either front gang and tighten the heck out of it.
I'm not smart enough to come up with this on my own but learned this from the service manager at Kelly Mudd in Hallettsville and just thought I would share.
