  • Mine is a Leinbach 6' disk, very heavy & well made(I also added some weight to it). Not as pretty as the old Ferguson's or Dearborn models. The 8N will lift it, barely, but pulls it handily in our soil, though.

  • Every time I look at new implements I end up back home fixing my old broken stuff. The new stuff is expensive and made a lot lighter. I've got an old 2-gang disc that will provide parts to keep the single-gang working for as long as I will need it. I had one of my old back blades apart last weekend. It needed new pins. I took the opportunity to straighten the "A" frame that has been bent since I got the blade. It took everything my shop press could give to straighten one side of the cast iron "A" frame.

  • Bruce, maybe you can find a deal like I did! It was a crglst ad for a 3 pt 6' for $100. When I got there I could see why it was so cheap - it was home-made & he had put all 4 gangs on backwards! I'll bet it rolled nice, but wouldn't cut! A set of new wooden bearings, new bolts, & some paint & I have a good disk!

  • TSC always sold the KK line till a few years ago when they came up with the in house brand name County Line. A deal was struck with KK and they still are builders of the CL brand. They for the most part are one and the same.

  • Gaspump, no offense but the CL line of equipment sold by TSC is not built by King Cutter. It is built in the USA but I don't think it is of comparable quality but really don't have first hand knowledge of the King Cutter stuff either. Most of it is copied from overseas products. That is about all I can say without getting in trouble where I work if you know what I mean! Just my 2 cents worth Greg NE

  • Interesting, they were and I did not know that. I still have a 22 year old KK 6" finishing mower and almost every part except the redesigned wheel attaching braces are interchangeable and most parts like blades, belts, spindles, wheels, pulleys, tires etc. are available at TSC but branded county line.

  • Finish mowers are not made by the same company that makes most of the other 3pt equipment sold by TSC. So there may be a good chance they are made by KK.

  • Not many choices in today's market. I'd opt for the King Cutter brand. You are more likely to get better parts and service with them. County Line I believe is the supplier now to TSC an who knows what you'll get with them. KK has been around for a while but I'd check with the dealer first on whomever you go with. Check country of origin, parts availability, etc. You may pay a little more for the KK, but in the end probably worth the extra $$$. Look in our LINKS forum for others too.
