I got this old cultivator when I bought a whole bunch of implements at once. But I had forgotten to take a Pic of it before I started, sorry. But I did take pic's as I went along with the restore. 2011-05-16 06.45.12.jpg 2011-05-16 06.45.24.jpg 2011-05-16 06.45.30.jpg 2011-05-16 06.45.47.jpg 2011-05-16 06.46.14.jpg 2011-05-16 06.46.27.jpg 2011-05-16 07.33.04.jpg 2011-05-16 07.37.28.jpg 2011-05-16 07.48.54.jpg 2011-05-16 15.26.08.jpg 2011-05-16 15.26.25.jpg 2011-05-16 15.26.33.jpg 2011-05-16 15.26.47.jpg 2011-05-16 15.27.00.jpg 2011-05-18 03.07.48.jpg 2011-05-18 03.08.05.jpg 2011-05-18 03.08.40.jpg 2011-05-18 03.09.32.jpg 2011-05-18 03.10.29.jpg

       I no its old, but I'm going to have change the front cross bar. Because it is to low to the ground. When I tested it out, it would bend and break my plants, that was only 5 and 6 inches tall. I'm thinking about taking the center post to the 3 point hitch out, then cut the center cross bar out, then put a standard 3 point hitch in which would leave the front open for taller plants lol. Ive looked all over to find the company that built this, but was unable to find out who built it. So if anyone happens to know, drop me a line.

My understanding of what have there is that it is a spring tooth harrow.

It is used for busting up clods and preparing a seed bed. Not for cultivating plants. That's why it's made the way it is.

I'm sure someone who knows better than me will chime in soon!

Rock Farmer you are correct. We grew wheat and the spring tooth was the last implement we used prior to planting. Nice paint job.

Single sections can be used to cultivate between rows if you space the rows wide enough.
