Standard Rigid Hanger
Heavy built rigid hangers hold strong in the most extreme conditions. The 1225 and 1275 use hangers fabricated from solid 1-1/4" high strength steel and clamped onto the gang beam with U-bolts. Models 1375 and 8550 uses hangers fabricated from rectangular steel tubing. Both hangers have a slim line contour that gives maximum strength combined with excellent crop residue clearance.
All Farm King discs feature one piece, 4" wide blade scrapers made of carbon steel for long wear life. The scrapers are U-bolt mounted for maximum adjustment on a heavy-duty tubular steel bar. All scrapers are located high end to the inside of the blade for maximum crop residue flow and to reduce draft requirements
Removable Spindle Axles
Farm King offset discs are built with maintenance concerns in mind. All spindle axles are designed for easy removal and maximum strength. Each spindle is bolted into a sleeve and can be removed by simply removing the bolt and pulling out the axle. This will save valuable time if repairs to a tire are needed.
Adjustable Gang Angle
The cut angle on Farm King Offset Discs can be adjusted to one of three settings (two on the 8550) depending on the aggression required. Moisture, soil conditions and crop residue levels change from season to season and only a disc with an adjustable gang angle will perform will in these varying conditions.
Positive Depth Control
A 5-1/2" heavy-duty rockshaft, in greaseable bearings, is the foundation of the single offset disc's depth control system. A single cylinder with positive depth control segments provides consistent and repeatable working depth. An adjustable crank allows the operator to regulate the balance of pressure on both front and rear gangs.
Steel Fabricated Spools
Farm King discs feature fabricated steel half and full spools. Unlike cast iron spools, steel spools can withstand far greater “shock loads” from rocks or stumps thereby eliminating spool breakage. Compressed to maximum density prior to assembly, Farm King’s fabricated spools ensure the gang will not shift and become loose.
Large Gang Shaft
All Farm King discs feature a large 1-15/16" diameter, high carbon steel gang shaft. This gang shaft along with Farm King’s steel fabricated spools allows the gang assembly to be torqued at the factory to 3200 ft-lb.
Furrow Filler Blades
In order to get the most uniform and consistent field finish, Farm King offset discs have furrow filler blades as standard equipment. On larger working widths two furrow fillers are standard, one 4" smaller than the working blades and one 8" smaller (only one furrow filler is used on model 8550). One furrow filler blade that is 4" smaller than the working blades is standard on smaller working widths. These blades along with full sized blades to create a uniform well-worked field.
