***Yes, most were 12". Ring rollers are commonly used out here for breaking up small clods, chunky soil. In rice fields, a large diameter corrugated roller is used and makes perfect, as the angle iron rings are about 2.5" and the heavy weight crushes/packs very well. With the much needed moisture, I can go into that field in less than a week and work it up nice and pretty. I need a Tri-Plane scraper here, my only one is 65 miles south of here, and not worth the effort to move in. My favorite tool for flattening out fields! Match it to a D7 17A and you have one heck of an agile combination.
I would love to bring in my 21' Killefer drag disc and pull it with my D4D SA for kicks. Many have a hard enough time pulling one with a D6C, but ask anyone that has driven that particular D4!
Nothing beats eating some dirt and getting paid for it. Life is good! JM

"I also joined a year ago. had been on here a couple of times as a non-member and found the info very helpful so I got a one year subscription (not very expensive at all) to try it out. I really like all the resources on here so I just got a three year. I think its a very small price for what you can get out of this site."
