At the Summer Show, a guy wanted to know if I wanted to buy a cultivator like the one I had.

$25 later, we were both happy.

Looks to be there except the depth wheels, just disassembled so he could make it work with his Allis (long gone) back when he had a garden.

Thinking I may make a slot hitch for it so KK can use it.

Not a bad deal.  The shovels don't look too worn.

Sounds like a great price to me. Now you and Ryan can tag team the cultivating and get it done in half the time.

Looks good.

Can you use it as a middle buster or a center plow to dig a trench?

 

Use the sleeve hitch yoke with the 2 center channels and 1 or 2 of the wide shovels in line, (pic) so it can dig a narrow shallow trench?

OK, here is what she looks like this morning.

It was a little rainy so I decided to finish this half done project...
We had these extra pieces around that we rescued from the scrap pile. They say empire on them, but they do (just) fit thru the keeps

Any guesses what I have it set up for?

I agree that it looks like a furrowing setup, but I have to say that the rear "blades" seem as though they'll undo what the front middle buster does. Almost as though there should be a planting device in between them. It looks great and I'm sure that it will do whatever you designed it to do. Any chance we'll get to see the pattern that it leaves behind?

Yes, it sure looks like the blades will fill in the middle furrow.

Other than seat time, there's got to be a reason for that setup.

 

I can't wait for Alan to figure it out...

That's how you handle a poor potato crop-dig up whats there and spread and recover!  The edge teeth break up the wheel treads.

I must say I have never seen a set up like that.  It reminds me of a Klingon Bird of Prey from Star Trek.

 

It looks pretty aggressive.
