I bought this at PA Plow Day. I got it solely to re-purpose with KK's Commando 8 and slot hitch.

I haven't been able to ID it yet. It's only about 29" wide as you see it here.

Ryan and I heated and straightened the bend, added a few teeth and ta-da, it's just right. Only misses covering her wheels by 1/2" and that is fixable with the right teeth on the sweeps.

Looks to me like it's doing the job quite well Alan, and now KK is eager to help in the garden I bet..

Nice cultivator, cool that it fits between the rows. Always fun to get a new to you piece hooked up and tried out.

I still don't know what it is, but I know it's NOT a Springfield. Casey was within 20 feet of it and didn't smell it. :rolling:

Had a member ask about this (thanks for the reminder)
To the best anyone has been able to figure, these were form a Blackhawk Walk Behind Tractor.

MH81, I think I found it!

 

The Blackhawk cultivator looked really close but was slightly off on the way it hitched up to the tractor. So I kept kicking over rocks, and dug, and dug and dug, and finally found it. Its off a Garden Aid Walk behind, page 4 of the following brochure:

They are a pretty neat little cultivator, very heavily built.
