Chase, we have a 35 or 40 hp. We can handle the 4 ft. implements like the firminator or kasco. I think we could handle the 6 ft kasco. Usually about 1000 lbs is pretty easy to use with the counter weight of the FEL. We would like to get a new tractor in the 50-60 hp...closer to 60 would be nice. But, you need a bigger trailer for moving, a bigger shed for storing, a bigger check book for buying...

He replied and said it is a John Deere 5103 and I know it is 4wd.


Here is some data on the tractor, but it is exactly 50hp and it did not have a loader (cheap skate... )
You'll never know unless you let them grow!

I sent them an email with some questions and this is the info I received.

Machine turns in reverse like a reverse tiller
Turns up rocks smaller than a softball, seperates them and buries them
Larger rocks activate a slip-clutch
Blades have shear bolts as well
Easily buries corn stalks and such under several inches of dirt
One year warranty (PTO not included in that)
US distributor for over 10 year and Collari has been in business for over forty
Cost for the ACL 205 is $16,800

Default Found this thread

I like the idea and the price of my 5 shank chisel plow, cultipacker, 8 foot tiller, transport disc, and harrogator is certainly greater then the price of one of these. However, I plant around 20 acres of food plots per year on one farm alone and I just can't see this piece of equipment standing up to the wearvand tear.

Default Anyone purchased this 2.05

My understanding is this unit weighs 2300 lbs, I have a Kubota m5040 4wd.that has lift capacity of 3300lbs. I'm wondering if I will need to add weights in order to make it work. Anyone out there using this unit that could give some advice?
