I got a three-row cultivator and a rear blade today. They are older...square heads on the bolts and nuts...but in reasonable condition. These are both category 0, 3 pt implements.

The blade needs a new edge on it, but I'll likely just sell it since it's not as nice as my other rear blade. Not sure if I'll fix it up and paint it first or not.

The cultivator is what I was really after though. Three rows of tines. Replaceable shovels. Doesn't look like it's seen too much use. Should do a nice job making dirt more suitable for dirt-like purposes.

I was going to take them out of the truck, but it's winter and the weight is pretty good, and another winter outside isn't going to hurt them.

Er, no. It looks different. I'll try to get a couple of shots tomorrow and get them up.

Here are the pics of my new implements. Not sure of their heritage. Square heads on the bolts and nuts, so pretty old.

A couple of the tines on the cultivator need to be tightened. The swivel on the rear blade is frozen and it needs a new edge, but other than that they look to be in excellent condition.

But can you still call it a cultivator then?? You may have to come up with a new name for it.:D A "dirt like suitable dirt maker" or some such.:bigrofl:
Just kidding looks like a nice find. :thumbs:

Yeah, I'll likely keep it beside the "grass clipping picker-upper." :beerchug:

Thanks. I'm still wondering who might have made them though.

Looking at the pics, and I think the back blade started it's life on the other end of the tractor. The holes at the bottom of the braces look a lot like pivot holes for a spring loaded front blade. The other end of the springs would go in the holes on top of the angle iron on top of the blade.

Looking a second time, the 30degree (angle) adjustment on top started behind the blade. It was the angle adjustment. the pivot holes are visible in the 4th pic.

Whoever built it did a nice job.

That makes sense actually. I've never seen a design quite like it. As for the nice job, the part of the province I picked it up in seems to have a lot of pretty skilled people when it comes to things like that.
