Disc Blades, what are the facts?

A:

NORMAL CONCAVE

Recommend in light soils and in rocky fields to control soil movenemnt. In rocky conditions, they reduce stress loads on the frame and gang components. In other soil types, especially with 7-1/4" to 9" blade spacing, concave blades also may be your choice for general purpose disking and chemical incorporation.
