- Offset Discs


Farm King offset discs are available in three weight classes ranging from 550 lb/ft to 1050 lb/ft. Designed to be stronger and last longer Farm King discs feature extreme duty bearings and optional interlocking 1/2 spools and the industry‘s strongest and tightest gangs with steel fabricated spools torqued to an impressive 3,200 ft-lb.

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. The 8550 uses hangers fabricated from rectangular steel tubing. Both hangers have a slim line contour that gives maximum strength combined with excellent trash clearance.

Blade Scrapers
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 trash flow and to reduce draft requirements. This eliminates the need for trash guards.

Adjustable Gang Angle
Farm King offset discs allow operators to change the angle of cut between three (two on the 8550) different positions. This causes the disc to cut with more or less aggressive discing action. Soil conditions such as residue or trash levels, moisture, etc. change from year to year and only a disc with adjustable gang angle will perform well in all these different types of 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.

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.

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.

Removable Spindle Axles
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.

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). On smaller working widths one furrow filler blade 4' smaller that the working blades is standard. These blades along with full sizes blades work together to create a uniform well-worked field.

Stone Flex Hanger
For those who want additional protection flex hangers are available as an option. With the extreme thrust forces present on a disc and potential for large rocks in some areas, the stone flex hanger is a perfect choice for absorbing shock loads. The 1-1/4' x 2-1/2' C-shaped spring steel reacts to both vertical, but more importantly, horizontal forces. Disc blade penetration is not compromised.

Pan-Style (Moldboard) Scrapers
Available on models 1225 and 1275, pan-style scrapers contact lower down on the disc blade to provide more effective cleaning and prevent sticky soil from building up. As a result, blades cut cleaner and draft is lighter. Scraper material is a boron alloy steel for enhanced wear characteristics. All scrapers are adjustable individually or as a group for optimum field performance.

Disc Blades
Quality disc implements start with quality blades. All Farm King discs feature the latest technology in micro alloy boron steel blades that combine the important performance characteristics of superior breakage - with long wearing abrasion resistant hardness.
