Side-Mount Disk Cleans Up Grave Roads
Rural townships can save $5,000 to $10,000 per year on gravel with this new side-mount disk designed to chew up the grass hump along roadsides so it can be graded back onto the center of the road crown, says manufacturer Doyle Incorporated, Sioux Falls, S.Dak.
Knocking down the roadside hump also improves water runoff. The disk mounts on a Cat II 3-pt. hitch or a side-mount mower frame. The 22-in. dia. closely-spaced, angled discs chew up grassy areas and lumps along the road into small pieces that can then be easily graded. When you try to do the same job with a grader, you end up with large clumps of sod and other debris that can be difficult to distribute evenly across the road.
