Default Where to get plow discs?

Building an outdoor track, where did you guys get yours from? How much are they typically and what size do you like the best?

Thanks!

Try you local farm machine dealerships. Most will have some stacks of old, useable discs taken of of discing implements. You may have to pay the scrap metal price they would get as that is where most of them end up. The bigger the dealership, the better the chance.

If you have any farms around go up and ask. They are usually happy to have someone take their old dull plow discs.
