Default Homemade plow pics please

I have 4 sections from an old farm disc harrow. I would like to make a plow to pull behind my 4 wheeler or garden tractor - It is currently setup like this and is to large:
(((((( ))))))

(((((( ))))))

Can I use 2 sections like this:
((((((

))))))

Or one section like this?
))))))

or will it roll funny and want to pull to one side or the other?

If anyone has some pictures of their setups I would like to see them
please email to [email protected] or post here
Thanks
Mike

You can split it up - even into one section - but it might pull a bit off centered.

If you think the 4 wheeler can pull it -

is the better arrangement.

Disks like this pull real hard on loose soil. It can/will ruin a transmission if you over-do it.

I am thinking of welding some 2" tube steel to allow for this config )))))) (((((( with a 8 deg turn on each set - Should pull a little easier and I can break it down to transport - Should be able to pull it - Most of the soil I am trying to break is old praire ground never broken -
Thanks for the reply - Anything else comes to mind let me know
