runner,,,,your mower may pull the disc, but probably would'nt hold up well to that kind of load on an air cooled engine.Originally posted by runner
Do you think my 20 horse riding mower would pull that disc?
The Crown dealer in Salisbury had a pull behind roller with big steel teeth that should work well behind a four wheeler. It should break the ground up fine for food plots. Might even be better in rocky ground than a disc. A 4X4, a chain, and a piece of chain link fence makes a drag to break up the surface and to bury seed. The roller was 3XX$

I don't know if you already own a 4 wheeler or not, but if not, you can definately buy a good used tractor, disc & brushog for less money than a new 4 wheeler.
This summer, I sold quite a few things I had collected for years (some I really hated to part with) in order to buy a tractor & impliments. I had a $5000 budget. Thanks to this site & tobryan, I was able to purchase a 65 horse tractor for $3000. Paid $400 for a 14' disc, $400 for a 6' brushog, $300 for a 10' chisel plow & $300 for a 3pt broadcast spreader. Total $4400 for everything. Can't buy a new 4 wheeler for that.
I was at Loli Bros auction & could have bought several good tractors for $1500 or less.
If you've got a 500cc 4 wheeler or bigger, I've got an old 6' horsedrawn disc that I worked 8 acres with this spring before I bought my tractor. I'll probably sell it. It works great. Probably as well or better than most of those on that site.
